I used Snake River Farms American Wagyu Beef. It’s tender meat and comes in my monthly subscription service.
What kind of waffles to use
I prefer to use store-bought waffles (like an Eggo waffle) because it’s fast and makes for an easy recipe. Plus I understand that not everyone has a waffle maker.
But you can use homemade waffles, cheese waffles, chocolate chip waffles, blueberry waffles…. the possibilities are endless and are a great substitute for hamburger buns.
You can easily make substitutions to switch up this recipe! You can even switch out the all-beef patty for a fried, crispy chicken breast.
If you don’t want to fry the burger patty you can bake in the oven at 375 for 25 minutes. Or cook in the air fryer at 400 for about 7-10 minutes.

How to store burgers
It’s best to store the ingredients separately so the burger and ingredients don’t become soggy. Add ingredients to a ziplock bag or airtight container and place them in the refrigerator.
