There is only one day out of the week that K and I make a “naughty” breakfast – Sunday. All through the week we eat fruit, yogurt, yogurt with granola or a small bowl of cereal. When Sunday comes around we always head into the kitchen for something a bit richer then the norm. Muffins, waffles, pancakes, omelets and the occasional breakfast quiche. So when I came across this recipe in Everyday with Rachael Ray I knew it would have to be made on Sunday. It seems to have all of the naughty things you eat in a breakfast – potatoes, sausage, egg and cheese – all rolled up in a waffle. Batter up!
Sausage, Potato and Cheese Waffles
Adapted from Everyday with Rachael Ray
4 sausage patties (I used Banquets – chopped into small pieces)
1 baking potato (grated & excess water squeezed out)
4 tablespoons butter
1 3/4 flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups milk (used 2%)
2 large eggs
In a medium skillet, cook the sausage over medium-high heat, cook potatoes, butter and sausage until butter is melted (approximately 5 minutes). Remov from heat and let cool about 10 minutes. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cheese, salt and pepper. Stir in the milk and eggs until smooth. Stir in sausage-potato mixture. Using a waffle maker, cook the waffles according to the manufacture’s directions.
