COUNTRY-STYLE WAFFLE SANDWICH
1 recipe Basic Country Beef Breakfast Sausage
2 eggs, slightly beaten
8 frozen waffles
INGREDIENTS (Beef Sausage):
1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage, or 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Cook’s Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
- Combine Ground Beef and seasonings in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.
- To make patties, lightly shape sausage mixture into four 1/2-inch thick patties. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add patties; cook 10 to 12 minutes or until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.
- To prepare crumbles, heat large nonstick skillet over medium. Add eggs; cook and stir until eggs are scrambled or prepare as omelet as desired. Toast frozen waffle according to package directions.
- Top each of four waffles with a sausage patty. Divide eggs evenly among sandwiches. Top with remaining waffles.
