These 10-Grain Waffle BLT Sandwiches are a delightful way to have breakfast for dinner. Make whole grain waffles and turn them into sandwich bread for the ultimate bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich.
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?
These BLT Waffle Sandwiches are 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?
how to make waffle sandwiches
To make a BLT on waffles, here’s what to do:
