Why eat plain waffles when you can eat Bacon & Brie Waffle Sandwiches? Paired with fig jam, these sandwiches are gluten free and the perfect Saturday morning breakfast.
Approximately two weeks ago I asked you all on Facebook your favorite breakfast meat. The options were bacon, ham, chicken sausage, or other. As much as I adore my chicken sausage, I was so thrilled bacon won. Apparently I’m not the only one who’s currently rocking team bacon. After bacon won the vote, I asked turkey bacon vs. real bacon, and once again I was thrilled because real bacon was the winner. REAL BACON NOM.
I was determined to come up with a fun bacon recipe. Turns out, bacon and fig jam go really well together. Sweet and salty forever and ever.
As for the waffles, well, let me give anyone who’s a waffle novice a tip: don’t spray your waffle maker with nonstick spray. Just….don’t do it. I did and the waffle stuck to the burner and then proceeded to completely burn. I then did some Googling and found that waffle makers are all nonstick—like, actually nonstick to the point where you don’t need spray. So, I gave my baby waffle maker a good rub down, cleaned it and then tried the waffles again. Attempt #2 was a success! TGFG—thank god for google.
I actually don’t know what my life would be without Google. If someone were go to through my Google history, they would be so embarrassed for me. Since I know you’re all dying to know the things I search, here ya go:
Substitute for turmeric
Tug of war (debating whether it was tug of war or tug-o-war)
Mad Men finale
Parts of an avocado
How to cut a mango
….and the list goes on.
How else am I supposed to know how to cut a mango or the technical term for an avocado seed (turns out it’s just called a seed…so lame) or when the Mad Men season finale is premiering (April 5). The ultimate conclusion is that I’d be even more clueless without Google in my life, and I’d be sad to live in a world without waffle sandwiches.
- 1 ripe banana
- 4 eggs
- 1 tbsp coconut flour
- ⅓ cube brie cheese (or however much you like)
- 4 tbsp fig jam
- 3 slices bacon
- Preheat oven to 300°.
- Mash banana with a fork in a large bowl.
- Add eggs and whisk eggs and banana together; add flour and stir.
- Pour batter into waffle maker, a little over ½ cup batter per waffle.
- Once waffles are cooked, break into fours, put HALF on a baking sheet and set the other half aside (should total four waffle wedges on baking sheet and four set aside).
- Cut cheese and place on top of waffles on baking sheet; place baking sheet in the oven so cheese melts.
- While cheese is melting, cook bacon in a skillet over stovetop. Spread fig jam overtop of waffles that are set aside and then place bacon on top.
- Remove waffles from oven and place atop of other waffles to form waffle sandwiches.
