Thing to know about me #1: I love all things waffles — sweet, savory, hell, they don’t even have to be waffles at all, as long as things are waffled, I’m happy. When my boyfriend bought me a waffle maker, we started experimenting with ways to use it to waffle all the things. Our first time, we obviously made waffles, but recently we whipped up the “waffled egg melt.” It’s basically a waffled scrambled egg sandwich.
Thing to know about me #2: I can’t cook. Remember the Offbeat Home & Life cooking challenges one and two? My cooking skills improved slightly through those trying times. So pair my slightly-improved-but-not-great cooking skills with my boyfriend’s also barely-existent cooking skills then add my enthusiasm for our waffle maker, and this is what Megan-simple cooking has become…
The Waffled Egg Melt
- thinly-sliced sourdough bread
- eggs (two eggs per sandwhich)
- whole milk (optional, for the eggs)
- cheese (we used manchego and mahón)
- fresh herbs (we used chives, after having to text a friend to find out what it means when scrambled egg recipes call for “fresh herbs”)
Make scrambled eggs however you like ’em. We made soft-scrambled eggs with chives, and seasoned with salt and pepper.
Butter both sides of your sliced sourdough.
Place one slice of sourdough on the waffle iron, then cover the bread with a layer of cheese slices.
Transfer scrambled eggs from the pan to the bread.
Add another layer of cheese. We didn’t do this on our first waffled egg melt, but we amended it on our second.
Top it all off with one more slice of buttered bread.
Step 7: Waffle. That. Shit.
Last month my boyfriend bought me a waffle maker. Today we created the "diet waffled egg melt." This isn't going to stop, and it's only going to get better. You're welcome, universe.

We made two versions, and they both were delicious, but could have used more flavor. Remember, I am NOT in any way a cooking expert, so I bet all y’all could come up with better/more waffled egg melt ingredients, additions, and ideas.
Tell me, Homies, how could we have or how will you improve upon the waffled egg melt?
