  • Dash Mini Waffle Maker


  • 1 Egg
  • ½ cup Colby Jack, shredded cheese finely shredded; any type of shredded cheese may be used
  • ½ cup cauliflower rice fresh or frozen. Do NOT defrost if using frozen, but break up any hard clumps before measuring.
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder, Italian seasoning or other spice of choice. OPTIONAL


  • Preheat the waffle maker.

    Note: The instructions assume you are using a mini waffle maker, like the Dash. See notes if you’re using a regular-sized or Belgian waffle maker.

  • Stir egg, shredded cheese, and cauliflower rice together in a small bowl. Stir in any seasonings you decided to use too. It will be on the thick side.
  • Open the waffle iron and mist it with cooking spray. Transfer about ¼ cup of batter into the bottom. Use a silicone spatula to spread the batter to the edge of the well for a clean edge.

    Note: this recipe yields 2 to 3 chaffles depending upon the size of the cauliflower crumbles and how thick you spread the batter.

  • Allow the chaffle to cook for about 4 minutes or until the steam no longer escapes from the sides of the waffle maker. Remove with silicone tongs.
  • Repeat with remaining batter. The chaffles will continue to crisp and firm up for a few minutes after you remove them. Enjoy!
