Savory Beef Brunch Waffles

Total Recipe Time:  20 minutes

Makes 8 to 10 servings

 Ingredients

Basic Country Beef Breakfast Sausage (recipe follows):

2 cups all-purpose baking mix

1 large egg

1-1/3 cups reduced-fat or skim milk

2 tablespoon vegetable oil

1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

 Toppings (optional): Maple syrup, hot sauce, sour cream

 Instructions

1. Whisk together baking mix, egg, milk and vegetable oil in large bowl until smooth. Stir in cheese and beef crumbles.

2. Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions.  Place 1/2 cup waffle batter in waffle iron for each waffle and cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until waffles are golden brown.  Top with toppings, if desired.

Country-Style Beef Breakfast Sausage: Combine 1 pound Ground Beef (93% 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 and 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.  Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot.  Add beef mixture; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 1/2-inch crumbles, stirring occasionally.

Cook’sTip

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.

Place leftover waffles in a single-layer in a food-safe plastic bag; close bag securely and store in refrigerator or freezer. To reheat refrigerated waffle, place waffle in a toaster and toast 4 to 6 minutes or until waffle is heated through.  Frozen waffle can be reheated in a 350°F oven 15 minutes, or in a toaster 5 to 6 minutes.
