Pour some syrup over toasted Eggo waffles and you get an okay breakfast. Truth be told, though, that probably won’t fill you up too much, and you get next to no protein. This recipe fixes both of these problems by pushing Eggo waffles to their full potential, so you are left with a more filling and protein-heavy breakfast. Sounds like a winner to me.

Protein and hunger aside, the addition of over easy eggs and bacon cooked in syrup — not to mention that both waffles that make up the sandwich have been sautéd in syrup — makes for a delicious breakfast. Oh, and you can make it in 10 minutes or less with only five ingredients. You’re welcome.

Step 6

Cook the bacon until crispy, then remove and set aside.

Step 7

Cook the egg in the same pan, using the bacon fat to cook it over easy. Place a lid or plate to cover the pan for 1-2 minutes at medium heat in order to cook the egg over easy. Once the egg whites have set, remove it from the pan.
