WAFFLE EGG IN A HOLE

Makes 1 waffle

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 ounces of waffle batter
  • 2 tablespoons diced crispy bacon
  • Butter
  • 1 egg
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat waffle iron
  • Spray both sides with non-stick spray, add batter, sprinkle bacon on top and close lid - cook until done
  • Remove waffle and cut a circle out of the center - large enough for the egg to go into band enough waffle left around the edges to hold it
  • Heat non-stick griddle or pan, and add butter
  • When the butter melts, put in the waffle with the cut-out circle beside it
  • Crack an egg into the center of the waffle and season with salt and pepper to taste
  • Cook until the egg is set on the bottom, carefully flip over (along with the cut out circle) and cooked until yolk side is set - remove to a plate along with the circle
  • Cut and eat the egg and waffle together but use pieces of the cut out circle to dip into the yolk
