Savory Waffle Breakfast Sandwiches


I love having breakfast for dinner, and breakfast sandwiches are one of my favorite things to eat on the planet. When I saw this recipe for savory waffles as a pin on Pinterest, I knew they'd be the perfect vehicle for a breakfast sandwich. And they absolutely were. They were a hit with my boys, too, who loved eating waffle sandwiches for dinner.

The original recipe is vegan, so I de-vegan-ized it for my family, but feel free to make it as it's listed in the original if you wish. The texture of these waffles makes them perfect to serve as the "bread" for a sandwich; they're dense and sturdy, with tons of savory flavor. They taste a lot like Red Lobster's famous cheddar biscuits, only in waffle form.

Who needs plain old bread when you can use savory waffles instead? Next time you're having breakfast sandwiches, give these a try.

Savory Waffle Breakfast Sandwiches

1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
 
Cooked bacon, sausage or ham
Fried eggs
Maple syrup

1. Hand mix all ingredients for waffles in a large mixing bowl. Cook in a waffle maker until they're crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.

2. To assemble sandwiches, place meat and one egg on a waffle. Drizzle with a bit of maple syrup and top with another waffle. Makes 8 waffles (4 sandwiches).
