This is the king of all grilled cheese sandwiches.

With eggs, bacon, and a double layer of cheese.

But the real kicker here is how this is made in the waffle maker from start to finish.

So there’s no flipping. No turning. No fuss. No mess.

And if you have a 4-slice waffle maker, you can make 4 sandwiches in seconds.

A 2-slice maker will also work. It will also help you portion control so you don’t end up eating all 4. By yourself. Like me.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  1. Looking to make this a freezer friendly “make ahead” type meal. What are some recommendations on applying it to this type of sandwich?

  2. What kind of waffle make do you use?

  3. DANG this looks good. I love grilled cheese but this version is extra special and certainly lives up to the name of your blog. Awesome photos!

  4. That looks absolutely fabulous as I am a huuuge fan of hot crispy sandwiches. But I feel obligated to tell you that this is indeed not a grilled cheese but a melt. grilled cheese has only cheese in it, no other solid ingredients between the bread. This is an important distinction.

  5. I just made this didn’t have a waffle  iron I used a skillet turned out great still. I seasoned the eggs used honey ham and honey wheat bread. Flipped the sandwich  once browned. It tasted really good.

  6. We don’t have a waffle iron, so we used a generic G. Foreman grill. IT WAS AWESOME! We made the sandwich a few different ways. Egg scrambled like in pic, and fried with the yolk all oozy and delish. Tried different cheeses. The sandwich is great all different ways! Try it!

  7. Well, I made it for family brunch today – my waffle iron is a two-slicer so I had to make individually. I used a multi-grain load bread – sliced much too thick on first one, but didn’t find out until I tried to close iron,I had to hold the iron together for 4 minutes – it didn’t close all the way but that was OK. Later sandwiches, I used very thin slices of the multi-grain loaf and laid the slices of the loaf horizontally across the iron – had to hold it together again, but still OK – turned out great!! On even later sandwiches, I added a romano tomato slice or two and a very thin slice of jalapeno – these turned out even better than great!!!

  8. I had all the ingredients (and a waffle iron I didn’t know we owned!) and made this last night – super simple and simply delicious – I *may* have dipped mine in maple syrup because, it’s a waffle, right? 🙂

  9. Genius making a grilled sandwich in a waffle maker. I love the cheese, ham and egg combo, so this recipe is on the menu for the weekend!

  10. This looks insanely delicious! I need it in my life!
