Wafflewiches


Fast-food chains like McDonald's are changing breakfast up and doing things like the McGriddle breakfast sandwiches. They're okay, but I really prefer homemade food to fast food. When my family asked for breakfast for dinner, I decided to put my spin on a different kind of breakfast sandwich, a Wafflewich.  But not just any waffle, a waffle with bacon in it. Loaded with an over-easy egg, a sausage patty, melted cheese, butter, and syrup, it was a breakfast for dinner masterpiece.

WAFFLEWICHES
FOR THE WAFFLES:
1 3/4 C flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 eggs
1 1/2 C milk
1/2 vegetable oil
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

FOR THE SANDWICH:
4 eggs
4 slices roll sausage, like Jimmy Dean's
8 slices American cheese
Butter
Syrup

Preheat a waffle iron.  Mix all of the waffle ingredients together except the bacon with a whisk.  Stir in the bacon. Pour about 1/2 C of the batter onto the waffle iron.  Cook the waffles about 3-4 minutes or until browned and slip off of the waffle iron easily.  If your waffle iron is like mine and separates the waffles into four sections, you will have 12-16 sections.  If you only want one section per Wafflewich, you can freeze the leftover waffles.

Fry the eggs to desired doneness.  (I like over easy.)  Fry the sausage patties until done and browned on both sides.

To assemble, take two sections of waffles and put the sliced cheese on each half.  You can microwave the halves or put them under a broiler quickly to melt the cheese. Top one half with the hot egg and sausage. Put the other half on top of the egg and sausage.  Serve with butter and syrup.
