For The Waffle

  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cups almond flour
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp whipping cream
  • dash salt
  • dash garlic powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp water

For The Burger

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • sliced cheese of your choice


  1. Begin by taking a tennis ball sized ball of ground beef and flatten it. It's going to seem a bit big but remember that it'll shrink as it cooks! Do this for as many patties as you want. We did four because we wanted doubles.

  2. Top with spices. 

  3. I cooked my burger in a frying pan because it's too cold to grill right now! If you want to grill this burger, that's perfectly fine. 

  4. Heat butter (yes, butter!) in a frying pan. Add your burger pattys and cook on medium high on the first side for 3-4 minutes.

  5. While your burgers are cooking, begin making your waffle mix. Add all ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix until smooth. It should be a pancake batter consistency. If it's too think or not thick enough, add water or almond flour. Turn on your waffle maker to heat.

  6. Flip your burger patties. After about two minutes, or when your burger is almost cooked, add your cheese slice. Cook until done, or 145 degrees for medium rare.

  7. Take off burgers and put aside to rest.

  8. Begin making your waffles. We typically overcook them a little bit so that they hold up better. Cut your waffle in half and add patties and toppings.

  9. Enjoy!
