I got this idea from a Kroger flyer about using eggs for Easter. It makes a very nice brunch dish and would be great with some sliced fresh strawberries on the side.

These breakfast sandwiches were a big hit in the Test Kitchen. They have the perfect balance of savory and sweet. In our mind, putting an egg on any sandwich and it's an instant winner. We love the basic bacon, egg and Swiss cheese flavor combination. Dipping the sandwich into syrup was so good and created a sweet/salty flavor profile. The sandwich is just as good without the syrup too. Perfectly crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, the waffle makes a great base for this yummy breakfast sammie.

How to Make Easter Waffle Breakfast Sandwich

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat waffle iron and brush with oil or shortening.
  2. For waffle batter, place flour and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Make a deep well in the center and place the beaten eggs and all the liquid ingredients into the well.
  3. Beat by hand until all are combined and smooth.
  4. Prepare waffles according to the manufacturer's instructions. Cook them until they are still a bit soft, not crisp. As they get done, remove to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
  5. While waffles are cooking, fry bacon to desired doneness.
  6. Cook eggs, one at a time, in a bit of the bacon fat, turning once to an over-medium consistency.
  7. Assemble sandwiches: Cut one waffle in half and place one half on serving dish. Layer a slice of Swiss cheese on the waffle.
  8. Then stack on 2 slices of bacon and an over-medium egg.
  9. Top with the other half of waffle and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  10. Serve with syrup on the side, if desired.
