country-style waffle sandwich


  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • Country-Style Beef Breakfast Sausage (recipe below)
  • 8 frozen waffles
  • 1 pound Ground beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage or 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Sliced cheese, spinach, avocado slices, hot sauce, salsa, sour cream, sliced peppers


Lightly shape beef mixture into four 1/2-inch thick patties. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add patties; cook 10 to 12 minutes or until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.

Meanwhile, heat separate skillet over medium heat until hot. Add eggs; cook and stir until eggs are scrambled or prepare as omelet as desired. Toast frozen waffle according to package directions.

Top each of four waffles with a burger. Divide eggs evenly among sandwiches. Top with remaining waffles.

Country-Style Beef Breakfast Sausage: Combine Ground Beef, sage, garlic power, onion power, salt and crushed red pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.

Test Kitchen Tips: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
