When it comes to my morning routine, I like to keep it simple and easy or else it will start unraveling at the seams. When it comes it my kiddos, our morning routines REALLY have to stay simple and easy with all the stress of early mornings! So, unfortunately, a lot of mornings breakfast gets put off and I have to send my kiddos to school hungry. That is until I discovered the amazing possibilities of frozen breakfast sandwiches, made totally from scratch! These DIY waffle sandwiches are delicious, nutritious, and so easy to make. Here’s how to get started:
- (1) Package of Homestyle Aunt Jemima frozen waffles (14 ct.)
- (7) Large or extra-large eggs
- (7) Slices of turkey bacon
- (7) Slices of cheese
- (2) Tablespoons of butter
- Salt & pepper
- Cook the eggs and turkey bacon. Cook the bacon on a baking sheet in the oven at 400 degrees for about ten minutes per side.
- Next, whisk eggs and pour them into a baking dish and bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until the eggs firm up. Don’t forget to add salt and pepper.
- Next, remove the bacon and eggs from the oven and allow them to cool. Once the eggs and bacon are cool, start cutting the eggs into even squares.
- Once your eggs are cut to size, 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.
- Now here comes the setup! Starting with your waffle on the bottom, add a half a slice of cheese. Then add a half slice of bacon and then your egg. Next, add another half slice of bacon, a half slice of cheese and another waffle on top.
- By now, your griddle should be hot, so butter the entire surface with one tablespoon of butter and begin placing your waffle sandwiches on the surface.
- Next, 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 the sandwich is golden brown, they are ready to be enjoyed.
The best part about these sandwiches? They can be frozen for later! What are some of your favorite early morning breakfasts? Let us know in the comments below!
