  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup of butter, melted
  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour

    Preparation

    Let’s make some waffles!

  • Add the yeast and sugar to a small bowl with the warm milk. Let it rest for 10 minutes.
  • In a bowl, whisk together one egg and melted butter. Next, add in the milk mixture.
  • In another bowl, combine the flour with the salt and pepper
  • Add the liquid ingredients to the flour mixture.
  • Whisk until you have a smooth dough. The dough should form into a ball.
  • Cover and let rise for about 30 minutes.
  • Make 8 individual balls and set them aside for another 15 minutes.

  • Turn on those egg timers. It’s egg time!

  • During that time, Heat a pan over medium-high heat.
  • Beat together your 4 large eggs with the chopped onion and bell pepper, adding salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook eggs to a scramble. This should take around 5 minutes.
  • Waffle + Egg = Yum!

    1. Heating your waffle iron at medium-high heat and brush the inside with butter or oil.
    2. Before you begin, use the heel of your hand to slightly flatten your balls of dough (this will make it easier to add filling).
    3. Take 1 ball of the dough and place it to fit the waffle iron.
    4. Once your dough ball is placed, quickly place 1/4 cup of your scrambled egg mixture on the dough. Add the cheese.
    5. Finish your waffle by topping it with a second ball of dough.
    6. Close the waffle iron. Let it cook for about 3 to 5 minutes.
    7. Serve and enjoy!
