Make

  1. Heat oven to 200F / 93C (to keep waffles warm while you’re making eggs). Preheat waffle maker.
  2. Following your waffle maker instructions, pour batter into waffle maker (you may have to do this in batches depending on the size of your waffle maker). Bake waffles to your liking and transfer to oven to keep warm.
  3. While waffles are staying warm, heat up a griddle or non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add butter or cooking oil (portion for fried eggs) to pan and then crack eggs into melted butter or heated oil. Fry until the edges are crisp and then flip. Cook until yolks are done to your liking. Fry in batches until done (you may need to add more butter or oil to the pan).
  4. Enjoy waffles with fruit on top and drizzle with maple syrup. Enjoy eggs on the side. Season eggs with salt, pepper, or some hot sauce.

Just okay. The green beans were a hit and will stay in my rotation.

Very good, roasted green beans were especially good. Went light on the mustard since my wife doesn't like it; could have left it out. Was asked to make extra batch of waffles!

Great! Used chicken tenderloins and did the prep ahead of time, so this came together pretty quickly.
