Author Notes

A twist on the traditional egg in a hole this combination provides some sweet and some savory with lots of variations possible. It is not a fast food big breakfast or a grand slam but is just as filling and more interesting. One side sweet and one side savory for some morning ying and yang. This is only one variation. It could be sauteed apples or fruit on the sweet side and throw some Hollandaise sauce on the other. TIPS -The prep is very simple with the cooking of the egg without overcooking the bottom of the waffle the most challenging. Using your microwave on high for the last minute on a plate could help you finish off the egg and warm the the waffle or leaving it in a warm oven while you prepare the others will cook itself. —Threemealsaday
