This is my husband's top favorite breakfast nowadays. It is so easy to customize this Breakfast Stack Sandwich to your very own tastes and to make your own unique Breakfast Stack Sandwich using my Sandwich chaffles (scroll right down the screen for the recipe below).  You can enjoy it for breakfast or brunch or any time of day really.  It is so satisfying and will help still the appetite.  For instance, you could build a Breakfast Stack Sandwich using scrambled eggs, fried onions or mushrooms, sausage patty or bacon (even Canadian bacon), cheese, tomato, guacamole, salsa, or whatever innovative topping comes to mind that sounds tasty to you.

Normally when you think of Breakfast Sandwiches, McDonald's comes to mind.  They use English muffins, of course.  This recipe uses the famous chaffles.  The recipe below is what I called Sandwich chaffles as they make a wonderful envelope for a variety of fillings.  The chaffle is bland enough not to overwhelm the fillings, similar to bread in that way.  They are substantial just like a slice of bread.  I like the holes in the chaffles as they are great for holding butter and condiments.

Make sure you butter your chaffles before adding your toppings.  This is a very hearty breakfast.  You will typically not need more than one sandwich to feel happy and satisfied.

For many breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Many experts suggest that breakfast should not be skipped.  Some even say that it staves off diabetes to begin the day with breakfast.  I am not sure I believe that, but I recently read that little bit of information.  I would rather not believe that as I often do intermittent fasting and skip breakfast.

You can keep the leftover chaffles in the fridge and reheat them by popping them in the toaster or if you like heat them in a nonstick frying pan with a little light-tasting olive oil in the pan.

My husband is head over heels in love with this Breakfast Stack sandwich.  He was so very impressed and could not stop raving about it. I always know I have a good recipe when I get that reaction from Ian.  He actually prefers this to McDonald's breakfast Egg McMuffin.  I tend to agree with him.  This is over-the-top tasty and I think if you make it, you will agree with us.  So create your own layers of yumminess in this breakfast stack sandwich.  Try it and be warned, you may be addicted to it like we are.  

Disclaimer:  When I double the Sandwich Chaffle recipe and use my bigger appliance with 4 molds, I only get 7 waffles.  I am not sure why that is, but the calories will be a little more than I worked out, but not by much, so not to worry. Same thing for the carbs - still be less than 5 g carbs for two.

Butter the insides of the chaffles.  Top one buttered side of chaffle with a fried egg, ham slice and cheese slice and perhaps a slice of tomato (carbs in this).  Top with another buttered chaffle, buttered side facing the toppings. Place Breakfast Stack in lightly oiled nonstick frying pan and briefly fry on both sides.  Serve.

These chaffles offer a fabulous bland foil for all your favorite sandwich fillings.  If you are careful, you will get 4 chaffles out of this mixture.  I usually divide the batter in the bowl into approximately 4 equal portions before proceeding to cook the chaffles in the mini chaffle molds.  I have a mini chaffle maker with just one mold and I have a much bigger appliance with 4 mini chaffle molds.  For me, since I make these often, it was worth getting the bigger one, as then breakfast is ready in two-two's.



1 large egg

1 tsp sweetener (5 mL)

2 tbsp cream, any kind (30 mL)

4 tbsp Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR almond flour (60 mL)

1/8 tsp baking powder (0.5 mL)

1/2 cup grated Mozzarella cheese (125 mL)



In medium bowl, whisk egg with fork.  Whisk in sweetener and cream.  Add Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR almond flour and baking powder.  Mix well.  Stir in Mozzarella cheese. 


Fill 4 chaffle molds with this mixture or make 4 individual chaffles using a 1-mold chaffle maker. I use a knife to very carefully spread the mixture evenly.  Be careful not to scrape the surface of the chaffle maker.  Follow directions for the chaffle maker.
