A reader asked for some Christmas Breakfast recipes. Here’s what’s on the menu at our house Christmas morning:
- 6 frozen waffles
- 1 cup cooked & chopped ham or crumbled bacon
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (Cheddar, Monterrey Jack, Swiss, Mozza, Havarti- I’ve used all sorts!)
- 1/4 cups finely diced onions*
- 1/8 cup finely diced red peppers*
- 1 clove garlic*
- 1 tsp butter*
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
In a small pan, saute onions and garlic in butter until translucent. Add red peppers and continue cooking for 1 min.
Toast waffles until crisp (soggy waffles will not work!). Spray a baking sheet (must use one with sides) if you don’t have a Silpat w/ nonstick cooking spray and place the waffles on the sheet. Sprinkle ham and cheese over the waffles. In medium bowl combine onion mixture, eggs, heavy cream, salt, and pepper and beat until combined. Spoon egg mixture over each waffle. You may get some spillage, hence the reason for the sides on the baking sheet!
When the waffles are covered with the egg mixture, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Bake for 18-24 minutes or until egg mixture is puffed and set and cheese is lightly browned. Let cool for 5 minutes, then serve.
*You can eliminate the onions/garlic/peppers completely from this recipe if you prefer. When we make them without, we actually cover them with maple syrup!
