Well, I have good news for you – there are some guilt-free items on the Waffle House menu. Check out this list:
Grilled Chicken Sandwich
Waffle House serves up a Grilled Chicken Sandwich that comes in at just 480 calories. This sandwich strikes a perfect balance of protein and carbs with its juicy grilled chicken and grilled bun.

Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich
Looking for a filling meal to kickstart your day? The Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich which combines sausage patties, egg, and American cheese is packed with protein and flavor. Request for wheat toast and add a side of tomatoes to round out the meal.
Sometimes you just need a refreshing and light option, and Waffle House’s Garden Salad fits the bill. This low-calorie salad features a mix of lettuce, tomatoes, cabbage, and carrots. Order some chunks of chicken for an extra protein boost and pair it with a side of wheat toast.
Craving some classic comfort food without the guilt? Waffle House’s Chicken Dinner is a great choice. It includes a generous-sized chicken breast, your choice of grits or hash browns, and toast. To make it healthier, opt for wheat toast and swap out the hash browns for grits. This meal strikes a good balance of protein and carbs, keeping you fueled and satisfied.
Ham, Egg & Cheese Grits Bowl
For a hearty and flavorful side option, try the Ham, Egg & Cheese Grits Bowl. Packed with protein from the egg and ham, and filled with tasty grits, this bowl is a comforting treat that won’t derail your healthy eating goals. The addition of jalapenos adds a nice kick, while the onions and tomatoes provide freshness and flavor. It’s a perfect choice for a quick and satisfying bite.
While some of the pre-made omelets at Waffle House may be high in calories, you can customize a healthier version. For example, you can request for bacon, 2 eggs, jalapenos and grilled mushrooms which are rich in nutrients like copper and vitamin B.
Are you in the mood for something warm and comforting? Grab a side of Bert’s Chili which has only 150 calories without toppings. You may choose to get it with onions, jalapenos and tomatoes for freshness and added nutrients. The beans in the chili provide a good source of protein and fiber, making it a satisfying and healthy choice.
Quarter-Pounder Angus Burger
If you’re craving a burger, the Quarter-Pounder Angus Burger is a great option just skip the cheese. This burger has 570 calories and you can pair it with a side of grits for added iron and a healthier alternative to hash browns.
Sometimes, simplicity is key. The classic Egg Breakfast from Waffle House includes two eggs, your choice of side (tomatoes or hash browns), and toast. Choose wheat bread instead of white bread for added nutrients, as wheat bread contains more micronutrients.
Yes, you can still indulge in a classic waffle at Waffle House without throwing your healthy eating out the window. A Classic Waffle has just under 410 calories, making it a reasonable treat. While it may not be a complete meal on its own, you can pair it with protein-rich sides like eggs or a side of chicken.
