A waffle-less waffle!
I love a good waffle and my waffle with bacon is to die for (I really don’t like that expression but they are the best) but this waffle doesn’t get syrup or butter but could get a good cheese sauce or hollandaise sauce poured over the top after it comes out brown and crispy from your waffle iron.
When I first started this blog back in 2009 breakfast was my least favorite meal to post about. I don’t care for scrambled eggs and that’s about all my husband wants. He actually use to scramble his eggs (before work, before he retired) in the microwave. Ugh!. So I started experimenting with egg dishes and I have to say I have some pretty fantastic “brunch”, “breakfast” recipes here. Take a look around in the “Morning Foods” section when you get a chance.
For this recipeI used my Belgium waffle maker (All-Clad). Most of my 52 (almost) years of marriage I had a normal thin waffle maker that was the flip type that the plates could be reversed for a grill top. But after getting this All-Clad back in my “working for Williams Sonoma days” I learned to like the thickness and crispness that the Belgium waffle maker gave to the finished product. So, if you don’t have the thicker waffle maker give your other one a try. If you don’t have one just try pour the mixture into a pan and baking.
I first did this recipe back in 2019 and I just never got around to posting it. Hope you will give it a try. And if you try any type of cheese sauce over the finished waffle, leave a comment down in the “comment section”; I’d love to see what you made.
BLAST FROM THE PAST: Parmesan Naan Breakfast Pizza is one of my favorites. So pretty and using prepared naan you have a quick breakfast that is if you have some leftover steak. 🙂
Ingredients are ready to go.
After you pour the egg onto the waffle maker add some of the ham, spinach and cheese. Salt and pepper to taste.
Add in some cherry tomato halves or you could do some red pepper pieces.
Bake until brown and crisp.
Dig in and enjoy your waffle-less waffle. Some good hot sauce would also be good drizzled on top.
