Breakfast-On-The-Go Waffle Sandwiches
- (1) Package of waffles (14 ct.)
- (7) Large or extra large eggs
- (7) Slices of turkey bacon
- (7) Slices of cheese
- (2) Tablespoons of butter
- Salt & pepper
The first thing I do is cook the eggs and turkey bacon. I cook the bacon on a baking sheet in the oven at 400° for about ten minutes per side.
I also whisk my eggs and pour them into a baking dish and bake at 400° for about 15 minutes, or until the eggs firm up. Don’t forget to add salt and pepper.
Then I remove the bacon and eggs from the oven and allow them to cool. Once the eggs and bacon are cool, I start cutting the eggs into even squares. Sometimes, I take this recipe a step further, by using a large cookie or biscuit cutter to create circles from the cooked eggs to fit the size of the waffles. If you don’t have a cuter that size, you can also use a glass or cup to create circles.
Once my eggs are cut to size, I cut each slice cheese and cooked bacon in half so that it will fit in the waffle.
Now, I warm my griddle on medium heat before moving on to the next step.
Here comes the fun part. Starting with my waffle on the bottom, I then add a half a slice of cheese. Now I add a half slice of bacon and then my egg. Next, I add another half slice of bacon, a half slice of cheese and another waffle on top.
By now, my griddle is hot, so I butter the entire surface with one tablespoon of butter and begin placing my waffle sandwiches on the surface.
I cook each side until golden brown and the cheese is melted. The melted cheese will help hold everything together. This is especially important for breakfast on the go sandwiches.
Once my sandwich is golden brown, the kids can enjoy them.
If I’m making these ahead of time for the week I let them cool then wrap each one in wax paper and store them in an airtight container. When we’re ready to eat one, we heat it in the toaster oven on 350° for about 10-12 minutes.
When making them at the beginning of the month for the freezer, I allow them to cool and then wrap each one in freezer paper. Once each is wrapped I put them in a freezer bag. Wrapping them individually prevents freezer burn and prevents the sandwiches from freezing together.
When the kids need one, they can just grab, heat and go. The ones from the freezer need to be heated on 400° for 18- 20 minutes.
