The Perfect Fall Breakfast...or Brinner: Biscuit Waffle Breakfast Stack #breakfast #brunch #brinner #eggs #overthetop

Breakfast...there's nothing better than a leisurely meal of eggs, waffles, and more. Weekdays, my breakfast is typically a protein shake iced coffee. But on the weekends? I serve a filling leisurely brunch with all my favorites! I especially love waffles, and I'm intrigued by making creative waffles using unexpected ingredients. For example: I used refrigerated biscuits and my waffle iron to create my tasty Biscuit Waffle Breakfast Stack! 

This fun brunch -- or weeknight brinner -- item features all of my favorite breakfast items stacked on top of a biscuit waffle. The biscuit waffle base is topped with reduced fat cheese, scrambled eggs, and a lower-fat sausage gravy. It's savory and quite filling...add a simple fresh fruit salad on the side for a complete meal!

Biscuit Waffle Breakfast Stack
a Weekend Gourmet Original
Ingredients (makes 4 servings):
  • Four grand-size refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • Four slices reduced fat Colby Jack cheese
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. chopped parsley
For the sausage gravy:
  • 8 ounces turkey 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 into bite-size pieces. Add the flour to the skillet, then pour in the milk. Whisk the ingredients to form the sausage gravy. Reduce heat to med-low and cook, stirring every few minutes, until the gravy has thickened. 
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 a 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, one-fourth of the scrambled eggs, and a one-fourth of 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 good!! I hope you'll give my breakfast stacks a try this Fall -- they're definitely family friendly. I hope they also inspire you to try making waffles from non-traditional items in your own kitchen!
