I recently attended a fancy PB&J party. The rules for the party were that each person had to bring a beer and an ingredient for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The table was covered in all kinds of condiments from pickles to white chocolate chips. There was Nutella and almond butter and crunchy JIF. There was grape jelly, fig preserves and honey. There were strawberries and bacon and bananas. Everyone compiled their sandwich onto all kinds of bread and then warmed it a waffle iron.
Yes, a waffle iron. That party got me thinking about the final recipe for the Hot for Breakfast collaboration because this week’s theme is breakfast for dinner. Why couldn’t I make a waffle sandwich but with different ingredients?
This 10-Grain Waffle BLT Sandwich is the sweet and salty sandwich dreams are made of. Breakfast for dinner was the height of awesomeness when I was a kid, and I know I would have loved it if my family ate waffle sandwiches for dinner. Sandwiches in general should take place on waffles from now on, don’t you think?
Fire up that waffle iron. Cook up your best bacon. Slice a tomato and wash some lettuce. Whip up a whole-grain waffle batter using Bob’s Red Mill’s 10-Grain Hot Cereal. Put it all together and enjoy a breakfast for dinner that champions don’t even know they want yet.
It’s been a great month of collaborating with some awesome food bloggers from all over the country for Hot Breakfast Month. Be sure to check out all of our recipes over on Pinterest!
Today I’m headed to Orlando to make more food blogger friends at the annual Food Blog Forum. I’ll be off the grid a little bit on social media, but I have some great posts scheduled while I am gone. You’re likely to see me pop up on Instagram from time to time. I’ll be back Tuesday! // susannah
