Got leftover pulled pork from last night? Make this BBQ Pulled Pork Savory Waffles Recipe! The buttery waffle is crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Stuffed with creamy cheese bits and smoky BBQ pulled pork, these sweet & savory waffles are delicious till the very last bite! Don’t just save them for breakfast. 😀
We’ve just made 4 lbs of Pressure Cooker Pulled Pork and it was so delicious that we finished the whole bag of buns making BBQ Pulled Pork sandwiches. LOL~ Since we had some leftover pulled pork, we wanted to have some fun with it. So, why not make some savory waffles?!
It may sounds like a strange combination, but behold! Though I might be a bit biased as my tummy has a soft spot for waffles. On those lazy weekends when I just want to sleep in, Jacky has tried a lot of bribes to get me out of bed. But nothing works better than a fresh warm buttery waffle (unless there’s fire alarm).
And boy, these manly BBQ Pulled Pork Savory Waffles have really killed it. They’re really delicious!! 😀

Tools for BBQ Pulled Pork Savory Waffles Recipe
Belgian Waffle Maker – We love our Belgian waffle maker. It’s easy to use, compact, very economical, easy to clean, durable, and makes delicious waffles consistently. The downside of it is that we couldn’t rotate the waffles unless we manually flip the whole waffle maker upside down.
Our current Belgian waffle maker is so old that the brand has discontinued the model. 😛 However, this is another popular model from amazon.
Amazon Popular Belgian Waffle Maker – This is an economical waffle maker that allows you to rotate the waffle, so it comes out more crisp and fluffy! Plus, you can store it vertically to save space. Jacky, we need this!! 😀
1. Timing for Rotating the Waffle: If your waffle maker can rotate, YES!! Rotate it right after you have closed the lid. Then, rotate it back after 3 minutes.
2. Alternative Method for Crisp Outer Layer: Flipping the waffles in the air after taking them out of the waffle maker helps create a crisp outer layer. It’s not just for fun. Hehe~ However, if you find the waffles too hot to handle, put them on a cooling rack instead and use a fan to cool for roughly 30 seconds on each side.
Time for some Irresistibly Delicious BBQ Pulled Pork Waffles!
Prepare Dry Ingredients: Sift 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder (NOT Baking Soda), and ¼ teaspoon of sea salt into a large mixing bowl. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
Prepare Wet Ingredients: Heat a saucepan over medium-low heat, pour in 1 cup of 2% milk, ⅛ cup of unsalted butter, ⅛ cup of peanut oil, 1 tablespoon of honey, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix until the butter and honey have fully melted, then turn off the heat.
Separate Egg: Crack an egg and carefully separate the egg whites from the yolk. Pour the egg whites into a small mixing bowl and the egg yolk in a medium mixing bowl.
Combine Yolk and Milk Mixture: Break up the yolk with a whisk, temper the yolk with a small amount of the warmed milk mixture. Mix well and slowly pour in the remaining warmed milk mixture as you continue to mix.
Egg Whites: Use an immersion blender with a whisk attachment to beat the egg whites to stiff peak.
Combine Dry & Wet Ingredients: Slowly pour the egg mixture into the dry ingredients along with 2/3 of the freshly grated parmesan cheese. Fold and mix gently with a silicone spatula. Do not over mix. Having some lumps in the waffles batter is okay! Gently fold in the stiff peak egg whites and let the mixture rest.
Cook Waffle: When your waffle maker is hot and ready, pour in roughly ⅓ cup of the waffle batter, place ⅓ cup of pulled pork and some freshly grated parmesan cheese on top. Then, pour in roughly ¼ cup of waffle batter to cover all the ingredients. Close the lid of your waffle maker and cook for roughly 5 – 6 minutes. Note: this measurement and timing are for my Belgian Waffle Maker. Please adjust accordingly.
Crisp Outer Layer: Open the waffle maker and check if it's golden brown in color with some darker cheese spots. Remove the pulled pork savory waffles carefully from the waffle maker and immediately flip it up in the air a few times. This will instantly develop a crisp outer layer.
Serve: Serve immediately with maple syrup or just eat it as is! Enjoy!!
Baking Powder: Double-check you're using Baking Powder, NOT Baking Soda for this recipe.Alternative Method for Crisp Outer Layer: If you find the waffles too hot to handle when you pull them out, put the waffles on a cooling rack and use a fan to cool the waffles down for roughly 30 seconds per side.Rotate the Waffle: If your waffle maker can rotate, rotate it right after you have closed the lid and rotate it back after 3 minutes.*Rate Recipe: If you've tried the recipe, don't forget to Rate the Recipe in the Comments Section.
