Waffle Taco

Everyone has heard the breaking news last month. It came as a total shock and surprise. I’ve talked to a lot of people about this topic and most people were very excited, waiting minutes in the drive through line to get their hands on this grease fest. Others, like me, find it slightly repulsive, but still intrigued nonetheless. Taco Bell has started serving breakfast.

I went onto their website to see the type of foods they were serving. Breakfast Burrito, okay that was a given. A.M. Crunchwrap, sounds interesting. A.M. grilled taco, okay. I’m not going to lie, the Cinnabon Delights look totally amazing.  But what really interested me was the Waffle Taco.  On the website it looks like a waffle filled with sausage, egg, and cheese on top. And If I’m being a hundred percent honest, it looks disgusting. I was still interested.

However, there is not one atom in my body that wanted to ruin my diet to try this Waffle Taco. I decided I could make a guilt free option at home to see what it tasted like. And honestly, it wasn’t bad. So I present to you….

The Guilt Free Waffle Taco

1 Healthy Banana Waffle

2 Bob Evans Turkey Sausage Patties

1/3 Cup Liquid Egg Substitute

1 T Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese

½ tsp Salt

½ tsp Pepper

 Taco Ingredients

This is seriously simple. Last week on the Monday Morning Breakfast Series I shared my Healthy Banana Waffles. That recipe make 6 waffles. There is only me and my husband, so I put the rest of waffles in the freezer to pull out whenever I wanted one. If you need the recipe to the Banana Waffles you can find that here.

First, you will want to place two of the turkey sausage patties on a cold, non-stick skillet. Cook on medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, turning patties halfway through cooking. When they are fully cooked, remove them from the pan and place them on top of the waffle. In the same non-stick skillet, put the liquid egg substitute, pepper, and salt. Keep stirring the egg mixture for about one and a half minutes or until they are fully cooked. You can then add the egg on top of the sausage. While eggs are still hot, top it with the cheddar cheese.

 I heard at Taco Bell they serve this with a side of syrup. You could add some pure maple syrup or sugar free syrup if you would like, but that wasn’t necessary for me.

I hope you enjoy and if you happen to make this recipe, leave a comment below and tell me what you thought.  I really love hearing from you guys! Thank you!
