Cream Cheese Stuffed Waffles
We love having breakfast for supper, and sometimes, I like to get a little fancy. On more than one occasion, we’ve made these stuffed waffles instead of pancakes or plain old waffles. They are easy to do and so yummy! There’s nothing like a warm gooey mess of cream cheese spilling out of a waffle!
–These Easy Breakfast Themes to Simplify Your Mornings make great breakfast-for-dinner recipes too.
This is really more like a simple idea than a recipe, so it’s easily adaptable to your family’s tastes and allergies. You can use your favorite waffle mix (regular or gluten-free) and fill it with your favorite flavor combinations! Cream Cheese and Jam tastes like cheesecake…yum!
You don’t need a special stuffed waffle maker to make stuffed waffles. Just use your favorite waffle batter and your trust waffle maker and follow the directions below.
What Are Stuffed Waffles?
Stuffed waffles are basic waffles with some filling inside. It can be made from berries, cream cheese, nut butter, or various other ingredients.
Ingredients in Stuffed Waffles
- Pancake or Waffle Batter. We have a homemade pancake recipe we enjoy or you can use a batter that you made from a store-bought mix.
- Cream Cheese. This needs to be softened before adding it to the waffles or you will have a cream cheese mess. (Although it will still taste good!)
- Sugar. This can be optional. You can just do the straight cream cheese (especially if you are going to use syrup or another topping.) Or you can add a bit of sugar to the cream cheese to give it more of a cheesecake style flavor.
- Fruit (optional, see below!)
Toppings or Other Fillings for Stuffed Waffles
These are fun to experiment with; you don’t need just plain cream cheese! Change it up by making different flavors. Here are some ideas.
- Any other kind of berries
- Add cinnamon to the fill or batter
- Use shredded cheddar cheese as a filling
- Nutella or a similar nut or seed butter filling
Instructions for Making Stuffed Waffles
Mix up your pancake or waffle mix according to the recipe as you normally would. Heat up a waffle iron or waffle maker. I have this Waffle Maker with Removable Ceramic Plates for easy washing.
In another bowl, make sure your cream cheese is softened and add in a little bit of sugar. You can use any sugar of your choice or choose to leave it out altogether. You can also add in some fresh fruit or fruit preserves! (We like strawberry, YUM!)
–Find some Simple Homemade Jelly Recipes that would be great to add to your waffles.
When your waffle maker is heated, Add a little bit of vegetable oil in a spray or your favorite nonstick spray to the waffle irons. Pour half of the batter you’d normally pour in. (So if it normally takes you a 1/2 cup of batter to make a waffle, you will only pour in 1/4 cup) Top that with a nice big dollop of cream cheese mixture. Then top that with the remaining scoop of the waffle batter. (The other 1/4 cup)
Cook until the waffle is done. Cool them briefly on a wire rack or put them right onto a plate to enjoy immediately. Top with butter, fruit preserves, peanut butter, or maple syrup!

How to Store Leftover Stuffed Waffles
Place any leftovers of the stuffed waffles in a bag or an airtight container and store them in the fridge until you are ready to eat them.
To reheat stuffed waffles, place them in a toaster oven regular oven for several minutes until crispy. You can also warm them up in the microwave but they won’t be crispy.
These Stuffed Waffles don’t freeze well. If you’d like to make freezer waffles, leave out the stuffing.
