Waffle Breakfast Sandwich

Waffle Breakfast Sandwich

I have climbed a ladder once in my life.

A real, genuine ladder.  Not a step stool.  A ladder.

It was in my tenth grade acting class when we took a tour of the auditorium.  It was easily my favorite class at a time when going to school was pure torture.  I liked the teacher, the class was fun, and it brought me out of my shell more than a little.

I would have enjoyed the tour more today as I love going to the theatre and would have loved even more to see the inner workings of it.  And while I did have a good time exploring with the class, it wasn’t easy.

After ascending a spiral staircase, it was time to climb that ladder to get to the catwalk.  Guys, if you’ve never walked up or down a spiral staircase, a real deal spiral staircase, not the kind in mansions for looks, you do not understand the kind of torture device it is.

Maybe it’s because both of my parents have vertigo, but I hung on with both hands (both hands!) and barely made it up or down.  My brain could not understand how to use this thing.  I don’t think I’ve been on a spiral staircase since and am always looking to avoid it when house hunting.

Once I was off the taunting staircase, the ladder stood in front of me.  I’d never climbed a ladder before and didn’t know how.  I mean, obviously I understood the general idea behind climbing a ladder, but I didn’t know how to implement it with it cylindrical rungs and slippery metal.

I started to climb and stopped, halting progress for everyone.  Those behind me tried not to appear impatient.  Those in front of me talked and wondered what the problem was.  “Laura,” I heard them all say.

Despite that fact that none of us were really friends in the overcrowded class that brought together students from all grades, social standings, and walks of life, a couple girls leaned over to offer words of encouragement and instructions on how to climb.

I made it up.  And down, though I don’t remember down much.  And for the rest of the day, my legs shook like Jell-O.  But I did it!

I also made this Waffle Breakfast Sandwich, but it’s so much easier to make than climbing a ladder.  Two waffles (which, let’s be honest, I cooked in the microwave even though it says not to.  Sorry not sorry!), a microwave egg or egg substitute omelet, and gooey, melty cheese.

Bam!  Breakfast is served.  Dad loves this for breakfast made with egg substitute.  You could totally jazz it up with bacon, ham, sausage, or even a handful of spinach, but it’s a really hearty meal as it.

Waffle Breakfast Sandwich

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 7 minutes

Yield: 1 sandwich

Ingredients

2 waffles, homemade or store bought, I used Eggo waffles
3 large eggs, beaten or ½ cup egg substitute
1 slice Colby Jack cheese

Instructions

  1. Heat the waffles according to manufacturers’ instructions, or go rogue like I did and use the microwave.
  2. Place the eggs or egg substitute in a microwave safe bowl, giving them enough room to puff. I use a regular soup bowl. Cook in the microwave for 1 ½ minutes. Check for doneness and continue microwaving in 30 second increments until almost fully cooked. Top with cheese and microwave an additional 30 seconds.
  3. Place the “omelet” on one of the waffles, top with the other and serve immediately!

Waffle and Pancake Avocado Toast

Since I was a little kid eating scrambled eggs with cheese for dinner, I have loved traditional breakfast foods at not so traditional times.

Really, is there anything better than taking say Eggo Homestyle Waffles and Buttermilk Pancakes and making avocado toast?  I didn’t think so.

Getting ready to make avocado toast

Eggo Pancakes and Waffles now have a new formulation that is free from artificials with colors and flavors coming from natural sources, which I love because real food is awesome.  And the last week of February check out the Target Circular when Eggo products will be $1.99!  As if we needed another reason to shop at Target 🙂

Once you stock up on Eggo products, feel free to let your creativity shine through, making different, fun things for breakfast, lunch, snack time, and even dinner.

You’ll definitely want to start with my Waffle and Pancake Avocado Toast.  As if avocado toast couldn’t get any better, I went and put it on Eggo Waffles and Pancakes.  While this is an awesome snack, it can also make a fun dinner that is ready in a flash.

Waffle and Pancake Avocado Toast

I topped my Waffles and Pancakes with avocado (of course), radish, strawberries, Brussels sprouts, dried cherries, and pecans.  I loved this combination because it’s sweet and savory with lots of texture.  But the point of this dish is to use up all those leftover fruits and vegetables hanging out in the refrigerator and some of the nuts and dried fruit lingering in the pantry.

Play around with flavor and texture pairings until you find the perfect Eggo avocado toast for you.  The best thing about this dish is that it can totally suit your tastes.  Oh, and that it takes practically no time to prepare and takes Eggo Waffles and Pancakes to the next level.  Plus, this is fancy enough to serve for a party.  Talk about a conversation starter!

Be sure to pick up some Eggo products and have some fun in the kitchen!

Yeasted Waffles with Peach Syrup #SundaySupper

Yeasted Waffles with Peach Syrup

There are many things I love about being a part of Sunday Supper, most of all my fellow bloggers.  Blogging can be a lonely, isolating thing, but being a part of the Sunday Supper community has been wonderful.  I always look forward to reading their posts and comments on my post.

Another thing that I enjoy about the community is that it often forces me to prepare recipes I might otherwise not.

Yeasted Waffles with Peach Syrup

Since each week has a theme, I am always thinking of a creative, yummy idea to make that fits the theme.  Some weeks that is easier than others.  And a few weeks it is so tough that I have to take a week off.  But most of the time, it gets my creative juices flowing in a way they otherwise may not, and it pushes me to make recipes I have always wanted to make.

This week’s theme is waffles.  I have a waffle maker; in fact, I’ve had the same one for upwards of ten years.  I used to make waffles quite regularly, but now my waffle maker sits idle most of the time.  I talk about using it.  I talk about making waffles.  Trying different recipes.  Whipping up something new for breakfast.  Talk and talk and talk.

Yeasted Waffles with Peach Syrup

But I never do.  I make oatmeal and smoothies and cereal and muffins and crisps, but not waffles.  Rarely pancakes either.  Can we have a pancakes Sunday Supper soon???

So this week, I made waffles.  Yeasted Waffles with Peach Syrup to be exact.  And I am so glad I did.  These are really easy to prepare.  You make the batter the evening before you want the waffles, and it is a breeze to put together.  Then in the morning, you whip up the peach syrup which is to die for!  And make the waffles and breakfast is served.

Yeasted Waffles with Peach Syrup

The waffles are tender and fluffy and everything I have ever wanted waffles to be.  They are good plain but with that peach syrup showcasing the pure maple syrup and peak of the season fresh peaches, really my words can’t even do them justice.

So stop putting off making waffles or whatever else you talk about making over and over again.  Have fun and do it!

Yeasted Waffles with Peach Syrup #SundaySupper

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

Waffles

1 ½ cups warm milk (I used almond/coconut blend, use what you love)

6 tablespoons olive oil

3 tablespoons honey

1 package active dry yeast

2 cups all-purpose flour

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste

Syrup

1 heaping tablespoon coconut oil

4 peaches, sliced

½ cup pure maple syrup

Instructions

Make the batter. In a large bowl, stir together the milk, oil, and honey. Mix in the yeast and allow to sit until foamy, about 5 minutes. Stir in the flour and salt until combined. Then mix in the eggs and vanilla.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to rise overnight. The mixture should double in size.

In the morning, remove the batter from the refrigerator while you make the peach syrup.

In a medium pot over medium heat, melt the coconut oil. Add in the peaches and sauté, stirring frequently, until lightly caramelized, about 10 minutes. Add the syrup and simmer while you make the waffles.

Cook waffles according to your waffle maker’s instructions. I liked mine on a medium setting, but use whatever setting you prefer.

Serve waffles immediately with the warm syrup.

Notes

Additional time is necessary for the batter to rise
