Garlic "Bread" Chaffles

So, I've jumped on the chaffle band wagon.  I've been saving Pinterest chaffle recipes for a while now and I finally bought a tiny waffle maker and have started experimenting with it.  Other than the fact that the waffles are tiny (but the perfect size for a bread replacement) and each take about 4 minutes to cook, it has been a fun thing to try.

I made these chaffles for cheesy bread to have with some beef tips I cooked in the Instant Pot.  In full disclosure, Dave thought they were a little eggy.  I didn't think so, but I haven't had real bread for a couple years now.

This recipe made 8 chaffles, I covered 4 in cheese and broiled them for dinner and we'll have the other 4 as little pizzas later this week.  I'm hoping the tomato sauce, pepperoni and cheese make them taste less eggy for Dave.

They do take a bit for cooking, I did see a 4 burner chaffle maker you can buy, but I just do other things around the kitchen while they cook so it wasn't a big deal for me. I've enjoyed the savory chaffles, now I'm looking for some sweet options.  Do you have a favorite?
Add a layer of cheese, I used a cheddar and jack mix,

top with batter,

cook until nicely browned.

The cheese side is crispy.

For garlic bread, I added cheese and garlic powder on top
and broiled until melty and browned
