Bacon, Egg and Cheese Waffle Sandwiches

When I ask my boys what they want for breakfast, 9 times out of 10 it's the list of traditional breakfast options; bacon, eggs and biscuits.  It's nothing fancy, but it's delicious.  It's comforting and a staple on kitchen tables pretty much everywhere.  That combination is the perfect balance; fluffy biscuits, salty and crispy bacon, and rich and buttery eggs.

Combine the classic combination and pile it high on a sandwich and you've got one of the most iconic breakfast sandwiches ever.  Not only are they a popular option and a standard breakfast item on menus across the country, they are also a go to option in the kitchen at home.
I've added another twist on this amazing classic.  Instead of the basic biscuit or English muffin, the bacon, eggs and cheese are sandwiched together between two flaky, golden biscuits that have been "baked" in the waffle iron.  Taking the basic biscuit and making it a little more crispy on the outside and keeping the insides fluffy.

It's no news to any of you that have been visiting the blog for any amount of time that I love sweet and salty and that applies to breakfast too.  I like to smear a thin layer of strawberry jelly across the bottom half of the biscuit waffle while it's warm, allowing the jelly to get into all the waffle nooks and melt just a bit.  Then I layer the remaining ingredients and top it off with another waffle biscuit.
This is a delicious and filling breakfast that I could enjoy any day of the week.  It's portable, making it ideal to enjoy on the route to work or school and it's ready in about 15 minutes including cooking the bacon and eggs.  You could also speed the process up a bit to ease the morning rush even more by cooking the bacon and eggs in advance and having them in the refrigerator waiting to go on the biscuits.
If you enjoy the classic bacon, egg and cheese sandwich then I promise your world will be changed by putting those ingredients on a waffle biscuit.  Your morning rush never tasted so good!
