BBQ Pulled Pork and “Cornbread” Waffles

Keto Recipes > Keto Breakfast Recipes

Okay, so let me first confess and say that the waffles aren’t made from real cornbread, but they do taste really fantastic! Savory waffles pair up with some sweet, spicy, and tangy BBQ Pulled Pork to give you a meal that nobody would ever guess is low carb and keto. We put a little bit of red pepper in the waffles to give a slight crunch and little bits of sweet and spice all around the waffle. This will give a great new flavor every other bite to cut through the BBQ sauce, adding a depth of contrast as you eat.

I’m using 2 previous recipes that I’ve posted on the site already. The first is for the pulled pork, where you’ll have to make an entire roast yourself from scratch, but that’s okay because the leftovers can be utilized into so many things (and it’s super cheap)! The second is the BBQ sauce which was one of the very first recipes I posted. It’s still one of my favorites, but I recently started adding a little bit of lime juice to it to give a slight acidic punch. You can get that recipe here.


Guess what? These will only take you about 15 minutes start to finish to make four servings, too. A quick breakfast that’s really packed full of flavor and store great for leftovers, too. If you want to keep the leftovers, I suggest keeping the pork and waffles separate – heat the waffles in a toaster when you want them, and heat the pork in a pan for a few minutes over medium heat.

The waffles are going to come out thick and dense and pair very well with the pulled pork and BBQ sauce. The sauce cuts through the dense texture of the waffles with a bright and acidic sauce that everyone will love. Feel free to top with a little extra sour cream to really bring the sauce levels up while cooling down the spiciness. It’s a great combination of flavor that everyone in the family will love!

Don’t forget to check out the other leftover dishes you can make with a whole pork roast – it’s incredible for feeding larger families and really stretch your dollar out to keep you saving money while losing weight.

Yields 3 Servings of BBQ Pulled Pork and “Cornbread” Waffles

The Preparation

The Execution

1. Start by making the BBQ sauce recipe found on the site. I add a little bit of lime for an extra acidic note to mine.


2. Mix together all of the ingredients except for the pulled pork. Add dry ingredients first, then wet. Once the batter comes together, add your red pepper.


3. Pour batter into your waffle maker. I use this Waffle Maker as I prefer the square waffles that can pull apart and be made into different size servings.


4. Once the waffle maker tells you that it’s ready, take the waffles out and lay on a paper towels.


5. While the waffle is cooking, put pulled pork into a pan and medium-low heat. Add about 3 tbsp. BBQ sauce and stir in.


6. Once your waffles are ready, your pulled pork should be heated through and ready to serve.


7. Add pulled pork to the top of your waffle and add a little more BBQ sauce. Optionally, serve with extra sour cream and a slice of a fresh jalapeno for a pop of flavor and spice.
