Crazy delicious! I love breakfast! Specifically, I love waffles. And bacon. And French toast. And also grilled cheese sandwiches. Okay, now I'm not talking about breakfast anymore! Or am I?! I recently concocted this Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich that combines all of those things I just mentioned. The gooey grilled cheese and savory bacon are delicious with a hint of French toast sweetness. Eat it like a sandwich, and serve with a side of maple syrup for dipping.
2 Tbs. milk
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Day-old sandwich bread
Cheddar cheese slices
Bacon - cooked
Confectioner's sugar (for dusting)
1/4 cup maple syrup (for dipping)
Cooking oil spray
1. Pre-heat a waffle iron. A square waffle iron would be best for this recipe. Lay out the day-old bread, cooked bacon and cheese slices so that they are ready to assemble in the waffle iron. If you don't have day-old (slightly stale) bread, try toasting it very lightly. This will keep it from getting too soggy when you dip it in the batter. Prepare the French toast batter. In a shallow bowl, whisk together: 2 eggs, 2 Tbs. milk, 1 tsp. sugar, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon.
2. Spray the waffle iron with a non-stick cooking oil spray. Working quickly, dip one side of one slice of bread in the French toast batter and place it batter side down on the waffle iron. Top with sliced cheddar cheese and bacon. Dip a second slice of bread in the French toast batter and place it batter side up on top of the sandwich. Close the waffle iron. Slowly press the waffle iron so that the sandwich bread presses into the iron. Cook until golden brown (usually 3-5 minutes, depending on your waffle iron).
3. Remove the sandwich from the waffle iron and serve with a dusting of confectioner's sugar and a side of maple syrup for dipping. Enjoy!
