Spicy Waffle Breakfast Sandwich
- 4 eggs
- 1.5 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- coconut spray for coating waffle iron
- 2 slices bacon
- 1 slice cheddar cheese
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- For Sauce:
- 2 tbsp Agave maple syrup
- 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp Cayenne pepper
- Cook bacon to your liking and set aside.
- Preheat waffle maker. Meanwhile, in a medium-size bowl whisk two of the eggs.
- Add brown sugar and coconut oil; mix.
- Slowly add coconut flour; mix.
- Add baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix.
- Add coconut milk; mix.
- Heat waffle iron. Scoop about 1⁄4 cup of batter into each waffle mold, close and cook until fully cooked (golden-brown in color). Repeat until you’ve used all the batter.
- When waffle iron is heated spray grates with cooking spray and pour equal amounts of batter (about 1⁄4 cup) into two spots for the sandwich halves.
- While the waffles are cooking you can start to make the eggs (in any style you want — I like fried eggs on the sandwich). For fried eggs, heat a small skillet and spray with coconut oil on medium heat. Crack eggs into the pan and lower heat to low and cook for about two minutes, then cover and cook for an additional two minutes until the white is cooked and yolk is still runny. Season with salt and pepper.
- Remove waffles from maker once they are fully cooked and golden in color.
- To make sauce: In a small bowl whisk together maple syrup, Dijon and cayenne until fully combined. Set aside until ready to serve.
- To assemble the sandwich, start with 1 waffle on the bottom, then stack on fully cooked eggs, melted cheese on top of that, bacon, fried egg and drizzle with spicy sauce, then sandwich all of that with the other waffle. One sandwich contains: two waffles, two eggs, slice of cheese, two slices of bacon, and two servings of sauce.
