Breakfast time! Have you ever tried a McGriddle? The combination of syrup and bacon... sigh. I was craving that this morning -- I didn't feel like wasting time making little pancakes for just me, so I went with frozen waffles! And of course, paired it with a salad to not feel too much like a fatass. I've been eating like crap these past two weeks...
- 2 slices of bacon, diced
- 2 eggs, scrambled
- 1 slice of cheese (I used reduced fat provolone)
- 2 waffles, toasted
- 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
- pepper, to taste
- handful of spinach
- drizzle of your favorite dressing
The first thing I did was set up my plate. I threw the spinach and drizzled my dressing. Then, I cooked up the bacon in a nonstick pan. I prefer mine a little chewy as opposed to uber crispy.
Once it was done, I drained some of the bacon grease. I left in about a tablespoon of the grease to cook my eggs. Why cook the eggs in butter or oil when you have bacon grease? Oink, oink. Yum! I poured in my eggs and cooked it until it was cooked enough to not look like an eggy mess in my sandwich. While it was cooking, I sprinkled my pepper.
I had one waffle sitting pretty with the cheese on top. When the eggs were done, I put them directly from the pan to the sandwich. My waffle was a little small, so try to pile them on there without making a fat mass. No bacon may go to waste! The heat from the eggs melted down the cheese a bit.
I finished it up by adding the final layer of waffle, and gave it a pretty drizzle of maple syrup. McGriddles have their pancakes with little bursts of syrup. Waffles are wonderful for having bursts of syrup because of their many little wells. Om nom nom nom.
This definitely hit the spot. I'm also highly considering having this again for dinner.
