Homemade waffles, a treat any time you serve them, become an extravagant brunch when they are layered with bacon and baby spinach and topped with a perfectly poached egg. Here we suggest serving the waffles with maple syrup for a tasty combination of sweet and savory flavors, but you can serve them with hollandaise sauce if you prefer.

Ingredients:

  • 5 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups warm water (110° to 120°F/43° to 49°C)
  • 2 1/2 cups (10 oz./315 g) Bellegem waffle mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 8 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked until crisp and kept warm
  • 2 cups (3 oz./90 g) lightly packed baby spinach leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • Maple syrup for serving (optional)

Directions:

Preheat a waffle maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Preheat an oven to 200°F (95°C).

Using the butter, warm water and waffle mix, prepare the batter and cook the waffles according to the package instructions. As the waffles are finished, transfer them to a wire rack set on a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while you cook the remaining waffles.

While the waffles are cooking, fill an egg-poaching pan with 1/2 inch (12 mm) of water, set over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Lightly oil the poaching cups and warm the cups in the pan.

As soon as the last waffle is cooked, crack an egg into each of the 4 egg-poaching cups, cover the pan and cook to the desired doneness, 2 to 4 minutes.

Divide a waffle into segments and break 2 of the bacon slices in half. On an individual plate, stack the waffle segments, bacon slices, and a quarter of the spinach, alternating the layers as desired. Top with a poached egg. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 4 servings.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve with maple syrup. Serves 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Breakfast Tried these this morning with a couple variations. The recipe as recommended is excellent - very simple, timely, and tasty. One variation was with a fried egg, over easy, in place of poached. Both poached and fried eggs were excellent. One diner "deconstructed" the breakfast tower in order to use maple syrup over the waffle. Also excellent. Another added hot sauce. The next time, I will make some Hollandaise Sauce; it just seems like a good idea. But the basic recipe is just really good.
