When you’re out of bread, you get creative.
Or strange, depending on your perspective.
Heather and her husband Kirk came to visit this week, and Vegas and I had a blast entertaining them in our new town. We were friends back in Atlanta, but now that we’ve all moved it’s even more special when we can get together.
Heather and Kirk are no strangers to strange goodness, so I decided to make a worthy breakfast for everyone.*
*Except for Heather. She’s 4 weeks out from her 3rd Bikini competition!
Remembering my cornbread waffle recipe, I decided to use them as the “bread” for this breakfast sandwich. It worked really well! I made a double batch of the recipe and poured them a bit thinner to make sure you could actually get your mouth around the sandwich.
I know Kirk is a big bacon fan (as is Vegas), so that was a must. You can’t really have a breakfast sandwich without it!
I made a giant batch of cheesy eggs and sautéed red pepper to stuff the sandwich. I used Red Dragon cheese, a Welsh cheddar made with brown ale and mustard seeds. It’s fantastic; I love the little crunch from the mustard seeds!
Rather than use mayo for the waffle-bread, I slathered it with hummus. It’s my new favorite condiment.
Cornbread Waffle Breakfast Sandwich
- 1 cornbread waffle
- 1 T hummus
- 4 slices bacon
- 2 eggs, scrambled with cheese
- 1/4 C red pepper, diced and lightly sautéed
Prepare waffles according to recipe and cut into fourths.
Slather with hummus and stack on the bacon, cheesy eggs, and red pepper.
Note: This would also be great with spinach, onion, or other veggies. Use your imagination!

I’m so glad these two came to visit! And I can’t wait to crash their place in Colorado again this winter. 🙂
