If you’re going to blow up your carb count on a single meal, I think it should be brunch. If you’re doing brunch right, you’ll have slept in, skipping breakfast altogether. You’ll even be a little late for lunch. Brunch is best around 1:00. It’s only really called brunch because eggs and bloody marys are usually involved.
I’m a big fan of many classic brunch dishes. Biscuits and gravy, huevos rancheros, and chicken and waffles are three of my favorites. Lately I have been thinking of how I could make them into a single dish.
This recipe is a hack. I pretty much just followed a recipe I found on Pinterest to make the eggs and chicken chili gravy.
Here’s the batter recipe:
1 11 1/2 oz box Krusteaz cornbread muffin mix
1 can of hot peppers
1/3 melted butter
1 cup milk
Mix up your batter. Pour the batter into your waffle iron. Scoop your chili & eggs on top. Eat.
We made some regular waffles too. Just in case this turned into a flavor disaster. But all in all, it turned out pretty delicious. Next time I might add even more steps and add some actual fried chicken on top.
