This month, Recipe ReDux members were challenged to create new healthy takes on eating savory or dinner-inspired dishes for breakfast.
Growing up in an Italian family, bread was accompanied with dinner on the side with any dish. We did eat a lot of Italian dishes growing up, so fresh Italian bread was typically served with those dinners. The times we strayed away from our Italian roots, there was still bread on the table and often cornbread since that was one of my sister’s favorites.

I remember not thinking some of the dinners didn’t pair well with the sweet corn bread, so I took the opportunity with this challenge to change it up a little and create a savory corn muffin.

These savory corn muffins were great on their own. I also melted a little cheddar cheese on top. My mind instantly started thinking of recipes to pair these muffins with, like a hearty soup, chili, or sauteed collard greens. These would even be great cut up and turned into a savory corn bread stuffing.

Cheesy Cauliflower Waffles

As a food blogger and recipe developer, I always have recipe ideas running through my mind. This “cauli-waffle” idea was inspired when I was organizing my kitchen gadgets and found my waffle maker buried in the back of one of my cabinets. I honestly forget what kitchen gadgets that I have sometimes. Hi, my name is Julie and I am a kitchen gadget hoarder.

I set my waffle maker on my counter and was planning on making waffles for a fun weekend breakfast, but when I woke up Saturday morning, I was craving savory rather than sweet. The plan for the cauliflower rice that was sitting in my fridge was to make my Hawaiian Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice for dinner that night, was used for my breakfast instead.

Cheesy Cauliflower Waffles

This is going to become one of my brunch staples. I topped my waffle with a fried egg, avocado, and tomato slices. Now that is what I call a savory breakfast.

I am going to assume they freeze well. I really can’t say since they were all devoured that morning.. oops! I would recommend warming them in the oven if you do have leftovers.

Cheesy Cauliflower Waffles

  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x

  • Method: Waffle Maker
  • Cuisine: American

Description

Take out your waffle maker and whip up a batch of these Cheesy Cauliflower Waffles (aka. “Cauli-Waffles”) for a fun new breakfast!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 cups cauliflower rice
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded (I used Cabot!)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Place your cauliflower rice into a microwave-safe dish. Add a teaspoon of water, (which will help to steam the cauliflower). Cover the dish with a damp paper towel. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Leave your cauliflower rice covered, to stand for 5 minutes. Transfer to a clean towel or paper towel and press to remove any excess moisture, which can make your dish soggy.
  3. Add cauliflower, scallions, cheddar cheese, and garlic in a bowl. Toss to combine. Fold in whisked egg until all ingredients are coated. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat waffle iron. Spray waffle iron well with cooking spray. Add 3/4 cup of the cauli-waffle mixture to the waffle iron and cook 3-4 minutes until the desired doneness. (I like them extra crispy!)
  5. Remove cauli-waffle from waffle iron and spray again before making your next waffle. Repeat process until 4 waffles are made.
  6. Enjoy as is or top with a fried egg, tomato slices, and avocado.
