I played with the waffle recipe to get “Bread” for sandwiches. This works for either open face (one slice) or standard (two slices).
I don’t call them Waffles because everyone associates that name with sweet.

Ingredients:
3 medium eggs
1 Tbsp olive oil
Coconut oil to grease waffle maker
2 Tbsp coconut flour
4 Tbsp almond meal
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
Tsp rosemary,
tsp onion powder,
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Directions:
Rub waffle maker with oil and plug in
Combine eggs, oil and seasonings
Combine coconut flour, almond meal, baking soda, and salt
Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
Let batter sit for 5 minutes.
Pour into waffle maker and close lid.
Cook for 2 minutes

It is very good.
You can toss the meat with it, but honestly it was better at full strength
