Belgian Waffles are a weekend staple at our house and they are delicious. These stuffed waffles are even easier with just 3 ingredients! You don’t even need a mixing bowl.

How to Make Stuffed Waffles:

Ingredients for sausage stuffed waffles - cheese and crescent dough

  • Cook sausage over medium heat in a skillet. Break sausage apart into crumbles as it browns. Remove to a paper towel lined plate. You can do this step ahead and refrigerate sausage to save time in the morning. 
  • Shred colby jack cheese. This can also be done ahead. 

Crescent dough rectangles

  • Unroll crescent dough and separate into 4 rectangles. You can lightly flour your surface to keep the dough from sticking. 
  • Gently press the perforated seams together. 

Sausage and cheese on crescent dough

  • Sprinkle sausage over each rectangle and top with cheese. 

Filled crescent dough rectangles for waffles

  • Unroll remaining crescent dough, following the same method of creating 4 rectangles. 
  • Place over sausage and cheese and press bottom and top crescent dough together, sealing all edges.

  • Remove to a wire rack to cool. 
  • Repeat with remaining filled crescent dough. 
  • Serve immediately or at room temperature.

Stuffed Waffle Variations:

If you do not have a waffle iron, you can bake the rectangles on a lined or greased baking sheet at 375° for 12- 15 minutes. 

You could also use bacon, scrambled eggs, sautéd onions and peppers. The possibilities are endless. I’ve made Apple Butter and Bacon Stuffed Waffles and they were incredible. Sweet or savory, you are going to love this method of making waffles.

You might be a bit skeptical if you haven’t tried this before, but I promise it works! You can also use refrigerated can biscuits if you don’t have crescent dough, just flatten the biscuits a bit before stuffing them.  

This recipe makes 2 Belgian stuffed waffles. They are really hearty and filling, so I would say that 2 waffles will make four servings. If you are feeding a crowd, just double as needed.

A batch of Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole would be perfect to serve alongside of these stuffed waffles.

Tips for Making Waffles:

Cool waffles on a wire rack so that they don’t sweat.

If you need to keep waffles warm, place wire rack on a sheet pan and place in a 200° oven. 

You can freeze stuffed waffles. Place cooled waffles in a zip top freezer bag in a single layer and freeze up to 3 months. 
Thaw in the refrigerator or reheated from frozen in a preheated 300° oven or toaster oven for about 15 minutes or until heated through.

This is a great waffle iron if you are in the market for one. The model that I have has been discontinued, but I love the bakers that make 2 waffles at once. So quick and easy!

  1. Fantastic recipe! Makes quick and easy stuffed waffles. I bought sausage from the local butcher and removed it from the casing before cooking. I chopped it while cooking and it was amazing!

    I also had to make a batch dairy and gluten free so I melted 3/4 cup of vegan mozzarella cheese with 1 oz almond milk cream cheese. Then I mixed in a little more than 1/2 cup super fine almond flour. Put it in the fridge for 15 min. Then rolled out the dough between parchment paper. Cut the dough in half and made sausage stuffed waffles with those! And they were good!
