Breakfast waffle sandwich
Fun way to make an egg sandwich: Take a traditional waffle, layer it with bacon, fried egg, and sliced cheddar cheese. Dust in powder sugar, and serve with a side of blueberry-maple syrup.
For blueberry syrup, warm 2 cups maple syrup with 1 cup fresh blueberries. Once warmed, let steep for 20 minutes. Then puree with hand blender and strain out pulp.
A unique way to work in leftovers from the fridge: Cauliflower, potato, and broccoli waffles, pulled chicken meat, arugula salad-Inspired by bangers and mash, use a mashed vegetable or starch such as potatoes or cauliflower. Make a mash and fold in whipped egg and a little milk until thick batter. Make sure to Use nonstick spray!
