Put a little zing in your morning without running through the drive-thru. Essentially a Waffle Taco, this delightfully fun and easy Waffle Breakfast Pizza is a little bit sweet, a little bit savory, and so ridiculously fun to make and eat, your kids will set their alarms early just so they don’t miss it!
Here’s how to make ‘em in your own kitchen…
Start by putting frozen waffles on a parchment lined baking sheet. We love using the Blueberry Waffles because it lends a little sweetness, no syrup needed.
Top those waffles with two slices of pre-cooked bacon, and a bit of shredded cheese. Cheddar cheese is perfect. A Colby-jack blend works, too. Or, if you’re feeling fancy a bit of sweet, mild Port cheese will taste like a marvel.
Now gently move that cheese topping around the edges, creating a little nest. Crack an egg right into that nest, salt and pepper to your heart’s content.
Gently slide the baking sheet into an oven preheated to 350 degrees, and let your Waffle Pizza’s bake for 8-12 minutes, just until the edges of the egg white set. Remove and allow to cool slightly for 2-3 minutes, the egg will set up nicely as you let it cool.
Now pop those pizza’s on your breakfast plate and serve.
Whoever said it’s more fun staying in bed?!
