Super easy, Potato, Egg and Cheese Waffles (with bacon!)


When it comes to weekend breakfasts at our house, if you want something other than cereal or oatmeal, hubby tends to be the cook.

I get up early during the week with the kids, and for some reason, I just can’t find the motivation to cook a big breakfast on the weekend. I do cook pretty much every night, though. Sometimes, it’s an elaborate spread, and other times, it’s just something simple.  (I like to cook, but I want it to be easy.)

On busy nights, my trick for keeping meal prep easy is to use pre-prepared food items- like pre-chopped and pre-washed bagged veggies and pre-cooked and shredded potatoes.  

These bacon, potato, egg, and cheese waffles are great for breakfast, but they’re even better for dinner.  

The kids are always excited when they find out we’re having breakfast for dinner.  (There’s just something about the idea of breakfast foods at dinner time that makes it feel like an extra special treat, and this meal is perfect for the night’s dad works late.)

I used my waffle maker for this recipe, but if you don’t have one, they would be just as yummy scrambled or cooked pancake-style!

    I am most interested in the recipe for the chicken salsa verde casserole. We love casseroles in our home because they are a great way to clear the cupboards. asotv@aol.com

    I love this! I'm more of a savory person than sweet for breakfast so I love the combo of flavors in this "waffle"

  12. Loaded potato and buffalo chicken casserole. I think my hubby would love this. But I can't wait to try your recipe. Pretty sure my kids would love them.

    Your recipe sounds wonderfully yummy. We love breakfast for supper also. I liked the sound of Cheesy Hash Brown Cups on the Simply Potatoes website. Thanks for a chance to win a months supply.

  19. Steph @ Three Loud Kids! says:

    Mmmm So delicious! I have got to make some of these!

  20. We've bought these in the past, very convenient. Although I only thought of them as breakfast-y, so I'd love to try something savory like the Potato Taco Lasagna!
