Toaster Waffle Sandwich

Description: Move from the normal way you serve breakfast with this layered waffle sandwich.

Prep time: 5 min

Total time: 5 min

Serves:  1 serving (double recipe for 2 people, triple for 3, etc)

Ingredients:

*2 Frozen waffles (any flavor desired)

*2   frozen BOCA Meatless Breakfast Links

*1 KRAFT 2% Milk Sharp Cheddar Singles

*6   thin apple slices

*1/2 tsp. Cinnamon sugar

*2 Tbsp.  Maple-flavored or pancake syrup

Instructions:

1. TOAST waffles as directed on package. Meanwhile, microwave breakfast links as directed on package; cut in half lengthwise.

2. TOP 1 waffle with 2% Milk Singles, apples and cinnamon sugar; cover with remaining waffle. Cut in half.

3. SERVE with syrup, if desired

Notes:

*Can add thin slices of red onion (or any onion you have on hand) to your sandwich

*Use regular sausage (pork, turkey, etc) instead of the meatless ones. Exclude for a no meat breakfast option or serve them as a side to the sandwich for people to eat if desired.

*Can try using other cheese flavors or can exclude the cheese altogether.

*If you feel the cinnamon sugar doesn’t pair well with the sandwich you have decided to make, can substitute it with a little cayenne powder/chili powder for a kick (that is something my mom likes to do but isn’t for everyone). Also, you can just exclude the cinnamon sugar and other extra spices if desired (depending on what flavor of waffles you picked)

*Scramble eggs can be layered into the sandwich instead of sausage (or in combination with the sausage). Add in diced onions and tomatoes with a dash of pepper (and a little Tabasco or other hot sauce) for an omelet sandwich. Great creative and experiment to find flavors you enjoy.

*Try an open-faced sandwich by using 1 waffle instead of 2 (topping everything on the 1 waffle and eating it)

*I’ve made it with whole grain, cinnamon-apple, buttermilk, chocolate chip (when we did a sweet snack version). Speaking of which, you can use a sweeter waffle and layer in some fruit and cream cheese, Cool Whip or instant pudding and cut into quarters and serve as a dessert or snack (omitting the cheese, syrup and meat of course). I like using the whole grain ones sprinkled with cinnamon and spread some vanilla or other flavored pudding, sprinkle with either fresh fruit (chopped strawberries, bananas, apples, etc) or for others I crumble cookies (Oreos, graham crackers, teddy bear grahams, Nilla wafers) and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Just depends on who you are making it for and how healthy you want to make it.

*When preparing the apples, can either thinly slice or chop them. Sometimes I switch which way I feel like doing it.
