These low carb bacon cheeseburger waffles make for a fun and tasty meal. Dip in aioli, ketchup or whatever you would top your burger. Only 1.1 net carbs per waffle.
These waffles came out really tasty and I had hoped that they would look as good as they taste. Sadly that is not the case for this low carb bacon cheeseburger waffle.
They are kind of weird looking but hey, they are super easy to make, taste great and only have 1.1 net carbs. You can’t beat that. So what if it’s the ugly sister of waffles, it’s still a worthwhile waffle I assure you.
I’ve made many savory waffles in the past ( zucchini, pizza, chicken ham swiss and breakfast waffles) and you would think I would tackle a sweet one for Waffle Week at Sunday Supper, but I didn’t. I stuck with what I know… low carb savory waffles.
Since this may be my last low carb, savory waffle recipe I will let you in on my secret formula. When you mix eggs, mozzarella and your favorite cheese with any of your favorite toppings, you have a low carb savory waffle.
Sometimes I add riced cauliflower for bulk, but for the most part you are waffling (a word?) fried cheese. And yes, no matter what you put into it, it tastes delicious.
Low Carb Bacon Cheeseburger Waffles
For this particular recipe I browned some ground beef and added steak seasoning. I think this gives it a real grilled hamburger taste.
While I’m doing that, I made some crispy bacon and gathered my cheeses and eggs. Once everything was done, I measured, mixed and place in the waffle maker.
We have a great waffle maker by Oster (a DuraCeramic) and we bought it at Target for around $20. Nothing sticks to it. No greasing or anything. We’ve been through a lot of waffle makers and so far this is the best one. Check it out here.
This recipe only makes 4 smaller waffles but they are hearty and filling.
Now you may ask, how do you eat them? The first one I tried, I just ate as is. With the second one I tried dipping it into ranch dressing. Lastly I dipped one in ketchup.
I was afraid to try ketchup but it was really good! So next time I make these I would add a slice of tomato, lettuce, onion and a bit of mayo or jalapeño aioli and I’m pretty sure it will be awesome.
So that’s my low carb bacon cheeseburger waffle for this week’s Sunday Supper theme. Thank you Sue Lau from A Palatable Pastime for hosting.
1 waffle = 243 cal / 17.6g fat / 1.1 carbs / 19.1g protein = 1.1g net carbs
Low Carb Bacon Cheeseburger Waffles
- ½ lb ground meat
- 2 teaspoons steak seasoning
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup mozzarella
- ½ cup cheddar cheese
- 3 pieces bacon, cooked
Brown your ground beef in a skillet with the steak seasoning.
When finished, let cool and set aside.
You will only be using ½ cup of the browned meat.
In a bowl, add your eggs and beat well. Then fold in your remaining ingredients and browned meat until well combined.
Take about ¼ of the mixture and add to the center of the waffle maker. We don’t have to grease ours but if you manufacturer’s instructions say to, do so before hand.
Continue with the rest of the mixture.
Should make 4 small waffles. I like to keep them small so there is less chance of sticking.
Top with your favorite burger toppings or dip in aioli or ketchup.

Do I use 2 eggs for each 1/2 cup of ground beef?
Hi Audrey, this is a fairly old recipe and I had to figure out why I did what I did LOL. Yes you are correct. You only need 1/2 cup of cooked ground beef. I think at the time I wasn’t sure how much 1/2 cup of cooked ground beef weighed. Hope that made sense. I will revamp this recipe soon.
What is a bacon cookie, please?
Hi Linda, I’m so sorry that is a typo. It should say “cooked”. I’ve fixed the recipe card. Thank you for bringing that to my attention and I hope you like them.
thanks its amazing
How long should they be cooked in the waffle iron, and at what setting? I don’t see that info in the recipe. TIA!
I’d keep it at a medium temperature and cook them until they are crispy. I’m guessing at about
3-5 minutes? To be honest I have setting that it turns green when they are finished and I take a look
and if I want them to be browner I cook them for a minute it or two more.
Hope that helps!
I want you to know I made these, and they were so yummy! Such a fun way to enjoy the tastes of a cheeseburger! I love the waffle idea, it made them crispy, but soft. So flavorful and satisfying!
