|Chili Cheese Waffles with Bacon and Eggs|
Brunch is a favorite Sunday meal around our house, but since we’re not into getting all gussied up and going out to some fancy hotel to get our eats on, we like to do brunch our way–usually on the couch, definitely with big mugs of hot coffee, and when the season allows, a few football games and a long afternoon nap.
In the spring, we still like eating brunch and while we miss football–dearly–the absence of a good game to watch gets us off the couch and out into the beautiful outdoors. This brunch is guaranteed to get you outside and give you enough energy to mow the lawn, do some weeding and even trim a few trees.
Of course, if after chowing down you really need a long nap before heading outdoors, go right on ahead and climb back into bed. We don’t judge. We just want you to enjoy your weekend, full belly and all.
Chili Cheese Waffles with Bacon and Eggs
Homemade waffles (I don’t have a particular recipe, but I like yeast waffles.)
2-3 cups of your favorite chili
8 slices of bacon, cooked crisp
3-4 eggs, fried
cheese frico (I use white cheddar and ‘fry’ it up in the waffle iron after I’ve cooked the waffles)
Maple syrup for drizzling
1. Put one or two waffles on a plate. Top with warmed chili, a fried egg or two, cheese frico and 2-3
slices of crumbled bacon. Drizzle with a bit of maple syrup.
2. Kick back, put your feet up and enjoy.
