Spinach Tomato Savory Waffles

Savory Waffle breakfast sandwich.

Savory Waffles are just what you need when that waffle craving strikes, but you’re tired of sweets. Made with buttermilk for that homemade biscuit flavor with a nice waffle crunch. You can add any combo of chopped veggies, bacon, herbs, or cheese to the batter. I like to toss in sharp cheddar cheese, spinach, and fire roasted tomatoes to the mix. Either way I know you’re going to be making these more than once!

Tips for Savory Waffles:

  • Use a four count waffle iron or belgian waffle iron with this recipe.
  • Give your waffle iron a light coating of non-stick cooking spray before adding batter.
  • Stir your waffle batter in a large bowl with a wooden spoon.
  • Chop your spinach and fire roasted tomatoes into small chunks. This helps with even baking.
  • This a thicker waffle batter. Spoon batter onto the waffle maker, then spread evenly into sections.
  • If you feel the batter is too thick for your liking, just add a Tbsp at a time of buttermilk and stir until desired consistency.
  • I love cheddar cheese in this recipe, but feel free to swap it out for your favorite.
  • Add in fresh or dried herbs to taste.
  • I also suggest frying an egg, ditching the toast and making a waffle sandwich!!!!
  • Take two waffles, place a fried egg and a slice of cheese in the middle, stick on a panini press for a quick melt and feed your taste buds!
  • Top you savory waffles with a homemade remoulade sauce!

  • 1 Tbsp Paprika
  • 2 tsp Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 tsp Dill Pickle Juice
  • 2 tsp Hot Sauce

Waffle Batter

  • 2 1/4 Cups All Purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 Cups Buttermilk more if needed
  • 1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter melted and cooled
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp organic raw sugar
  • 1 1/4 Cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese shredded
  • 1/2 Cup Fresh Spinach Leaves chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Fire Roasted Tomatoes chopped


  1. Combine flour, salt, pepper, sugar, and leavening agents into a medium sized bowl. Hand whisk together.

  2. Pour in buttermilk and melted butter. Stir with a wooden spoon until a batter is formed.

  3. Add cheese, spinach, and tomatoes. Stir until evenly distributed.

  4. The batter will be thicker than regular waffle/pancake batter but if looks very dry, just add some more buttermilk a Tbsp at a time. (Do not add a lot of buttermilk to make it runny. )

  5. Spray waffle iron with non stick coconut oil spray.
  6. Spoon batter into each waffle section ( or 3/4 of entire circle for large single round waffle)

  7. Batter will be thick so spread across with spoon to cover enough surface area for waffle.

  8. Close lid and let bake for 8-9 min. 

  9. Remove waffles and serve warm.
