Waffles! #SundaySupper...Featuring Biscuit Waffle Breakfast Stack

This week, the #SundaySupper group is focusing on Waffles! Our hostess Sue  from A Palatable Pastime asked us to share our favorite sweet and savory waffle creations ahead of National Waffle Iron Day on June 29th. I love waffles, and I'm intrigued by making creative waffles using unexpected ingredients. This week, I used refrigerated biscuits and my waffle iron to create my Biscuit Waffle Breakfast Stack! This fun item features all of my favorite breakfast items stacked on top of a biscuit waffle. This hearty waffle stack is a perfect weekend brunch...or a busy weeknight brinner. Wait until you see how easy it is to whip up!

Biscuit Waffle Breakfast Stack
a Weekend Gourmet Original
Ingredients (makes 4 servings):
  • Four grand-size refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • Four slices Colby Jack cheese
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 tbs. butter
  • 1 tsp. chopped parsley
For the sausage gravy:
  • 1/2 lb. bulk breakfast sausage
  • 2 tbs. flour
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 tsp. Cajun seasoning
  • Salt & pepper to taste
Step 1: Brown the breakfast sausage in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, breaking the meat into bite-size pieces. Add the flour to the skillet and slowly pour in the milk. Whisk to incorporate the flour and milk into the sausage. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring, until the gravy has thickened -- approximately 10 minutes. 
Step 2: Melt the butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Scramble the eggs until they are soft set -- add salt & pepper to taste. Set the eggs aside until you're ready to assemble your biscuit stacks.
Step 3: Preheat your waffle iron, and spray with non-stick spray. Place one biscuit in each well of the waffle iron and close. Cook until the biscuits are cooked inside and brown outside -- approx. 3-5 minutes. To assemble, place a biscuit waffle on a plate. Top with one slice of the cheese, some of the scrambled eggs, and the sausage gravy. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
This Biscuit Waffle Breakfast Stack reminds me a bit of a Southern-style eggs Benedict. The biscuit waffle base, melted cheese, creamy scrambled eggs, and spicy sausage cream gravy all work perfectly together! This is definitely a complete meal, but a fresh fruit salad is a perfect accompaniment. I hope you'll give my breakfast stacks a try soon -- and I hope they inspire you to try making waffles from non-traditional ingredients very soon!!
