While waffles, bacon, eggs, and cheese all seem to be separate breakfast staples have you ever thought about combining them together? You may be thinking "bacon, eggs, and cheese all on one waffle?" And we're here to tell you, yes it's absolutely doable. It's an entire breakfast to go. What could be better? It's a meal you can walk around with, a complete breakfast for the road!

The best part is that it's utterly simple to whip up. Just place some batter in your waffle iron and top with a whole egg, shredded cheese, and bacon crumbles. Then put more batter on top and wait for the magic to happen. You can also make these savory waffles without the whole egg. The bacon and cheddar by itself on the waffle are also delicious! You can also get really crazy and top this bacon waffle with maple syrup.

The fun doesn't stop there either. You can easily freeze these waffles and reheat them when you are ready to eat them another time. This recipe makes the perfect amount of waffles for a family of four. We all know how busy and crazy our mornings can get. When you're running short on time, you can easily wrap these in a napkin and take with you as you are walking out the door. Or you can enjoy a nice sit down breakfast with your loved ones and eat these waffles with a fork and knife like a real person.
