Breakfast Stuffed Waffles

The picture I have looks so much different than the original.  But, they sure tasted great.  I found these over at Damn Delicious   Chunguh has that blog and has posted lots of wonderful recipes.  Check it out when you get a chance.

When I made these I followed the recipe and found that the refrigerated biscuits just didn’t work for me. I made up some biscuit dough and used that by dropping it onto the waffle iron. I put the eggs, bacon and cheese on half and folded it over.  You’ve got to work while the “biscuit” is still warm!

Ham and Cheese Croissants

Ham and Cheese Croissants

Ham and Cheese Croissants

This recipe was created by Nicky over at Kitchen Sanctuary.   She has some yummy recipes on her site. This one sounds really good for a Mother’s Day breakfast.   I used a good quality Swiss cheese on mine. The sauce recipe is meant to be brushed onto the croissants. Well, I brushed it inside the croissants because I didn’t read through the recipe. 

The recipe has them in the oven for just a few minutes. I know this would be so good. I didn’t do that, either, although I wish I had. I added some sliced tomato and lettuce to mine. Next time, I’ll make them exactly as directed. Mine came out good, but I’m sure they’re much better warm and melty with the sauce on top!
