Waffle Breakfast Sandwich 
Here in Canada the children will soon be going back to school. I know that this is also true of children in the UK!  I believe that many children in America have already gone back to school.

No worries however. No matter if they have already gone back or are going back soon, as a mom you will be racking your brain some mornings for something delicious they can eat for breakfast!

And it isn't just children who enjoy these quick and easy breakfast sandwiches!  Grownups do too.  How many people stop by fast food restaurants on their way to work to grab something just like this!  

Along with a cup of coffee these are a favorite breakfast choice for many adults as well.

 Guaranteed to put a smile on everyone's face why not save yourself some money and make these quick and easy breakfast sandwiches at home. 

Once made, it is a very simple thing to wrap them into some greaseproof paper and go on your way, making them also a very portable breakfast option.

If you keep a few ingredients ready in the freezer, you can always have the makings of these tasty breakfast sandwiches at the ready.

Breakfast sausage rounds, frozen waffles are two things you might want to keep around. You will also need some cheese and eggs. I like to use large free range eggs if possible, but that is a personal choice. You can use whatever eggs you can afford and use according to the dictates of your conscience.

I cooked my sausage in my air fryer.  10 minutes at 350*F.180*C. Easy peasy.

If you are not fond of breakfast sausage, you can use bacon.  I often buy bacon and fry the whole package up, or bake it in the oven.

I then pop it into a freezer container with some baking paper in between, ready to take out and use at a moments notice.  A few seconds in the microwave is all you need to warm them up to perfection.

The egg for this sandwich is cooked in a cooking ring.  I use my crumpet rings.  I spray them first with non-stick canola oil cooking spray and then place them into a non-stick skillet, which I have also sprayed with the same cook spray.

Place onto a moderate heat, you simply crack the egg into the ring and let it cook first on one side until almost set, removing the ring and finishing cooking on the other side.

If you place a slice of cheese on top of the egg as soon as you flip it over, it doesn't take very long to melt.  

You can also scramble the egg and cook it that way  in the cooking ring. Just like a little omelet. 

Which ever you choose to do/use, just cook it to your desired level of done.  Personally if I am eating a breakfast sandwich like this, I prefer my yolk to be hard.

Cooking the waffles is easy.  Just follow the directions on the box.  You can use plain waffles, or blueberry waffles.  I know some people who like chocolate chip waffles.

To each their own. I like plain myself.  But I am a plain jane kind of a girl.

The main question with these sandwiches is  . . .  syrup or not?  (Always pure Maple Syrup for me please.) 

You can go old school and drizzle some syrup on top of the whole thing and eat it with a fork and a knife, or you can cut the sandwich into quarters and serve it with a small pot of maple syrup for dipping.

After living in the UK for 20 years I know that may seem a bit foreign for some over there.  Dipping an egg into maple syrup, or even a sausage.

But as a Canadian it is perfectly natural.  We buy maple flavored sausage here and my grandmother used to cook/poach our eggs in maple syrup.  (Very French Canadian)

Waffle Breakfast Sandwich 
It is a flavor combination we totally love and not really all that strange.  Some people love to eat that caramel popcorn which has been mixed together with cheese popcorn. 

Its a sweet and salty combination that people seem to naturally love.  I am tempted to say, don't knock it until you try it!
I never thought I would like a cheese and onion sandwich, or a cheese and pickle sandwich.  But when I tried them, I fell totally in love with them!  They are favorites with me now! 

Waffle Breakfast Sandwich 
These are not just great for breakfast however. They are also pretty darned good when you want to have a breakfast for supper night!

Or a night when you just are too tired to cook much of anything. Pop a few hash browns into the oven, and Bob's your uncle.  A quick and easy meal with little or no effort or faffing about involved.

Deliciously simple!

Fun, fun, fun, and pretty tasty too. This simple breakfast sandwich is pleasing all round!! Ingredients are to make one delicious sandwich. Multiply to feed more!


For each sandwich:
  • 2 toaster waffles
  • 1 frozen breakfast sausage round
  • 1 large free range egg
  • 1 slice of cheddar cheese
  • salt, black pepper and maple syrup as desired


  1. I used my air fryer to cook the sausage round. I popped it into the air fryer in the basket and cooked it for 10 minutes at 350*C/180*F. Remove and keep warm.
  2. You will need a cooking ring to cook the egg. Spray the ring with some cooking spray and place into a non-stick skillet which you have also sprayed.  Crack the egg into the cooking ring and season lightly with salt and black pepper.
  3. Cook over medium heat until the egg is almost set. Remove the cooking ring and then flip the egg over.  Place the slice of cheese on top.
  4. At this point you can take the pan off the heat, cover it and set aside while you cook the waffles.
  5. Toast the waffles in the toaster.
  6. Layer one waffle with the sausage patty and then the cooked egg with cheese on top. Top with the remaining waffle and serve, with or without maple syrup


You can use link sausage in place of the sausage patty if you with, or even slices of cooked bacon or both, depending on appetites!

  1. A great variety on an old standby, one I can eat if I use my gluten free waffles. Great idea.
