Waffle House Inc. operates a chain of about 1,400 Waffle House Restaurants located in 25 states. The restaurants, which are either company-owned or franchised, pride themselves on serving good food fast, at a reasonable price, in a diner atmosphere 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The menu includes everything from waffles and eggs to steaks and salads. Waffle House, according to information released in 1995 for the company's 40th anniversary, began as the dream of two neighbors, Joe Rogers, Sr., and Tom Forkner, who envisioned a company dedicated to both its customers and employees. The partners wanted to create a place where friends and neighbors could get together to enjoy good food served with a friendly smile. On Labor Day in 1955 they opened the first Waffle House restaurant in Avondale Estates, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. The first Waffle House restaurant was a smash, and the owners soon opened other Waffle House eateries throughout Georgia.




Cheese Eggs

Waffle House Cheese Eggs
Copycat Recipe

Serves 1

2 Eggs
2  Slices American cheese

Here is the REAL “secret” to cheese eggs. Beat two eggs in a small bowl with a spoon. (Using a fork bruises the eggs). Scramble in a skillet as usual. While the eggs are cooking have two slices of real American cheese melting in a small cast iron skillet. Add the cooked scrambled eggs to the melted cheese. MIx thoroughly with a spoon. Viola…authentic Waffle House cheese eggs…

  3. Does the cheese not stick, melt,burn, or harden in cast iron skillet?

    1. I realize this thread is ancient but if you put the heat on super low and as long as there is a good patina on the small skillet where you melt the cheese, you should experience no problems. I just bought an eagleware egg pan on Amazon which has as much to do with this turning out correctly as anything else. Good luck.

  4. Is the cheese in blocks or is it craft cheese what brand is it I use craft slices but does not taste the same
