Breakfast Waffle Nachos Confirm That The World Is An Amazing Place
Not to be confused with Pancake Breakfast Nachos, which I have made before, and are composed of almost entirely the same ingredients, except with quartered Belgian waffles instead of quartered buttermilk pancakes. The Belgian waffles are probably a better choice overall for Breakfast Nachos because they are thicker, sturdier, and can capture all that horrifyingly delicious black beans mixed with bacon and melted cheese in their little waffle divots.
Belgian waffles cut into quarters
black beans (recipe for black beans here, along with Huevos Rancheros)
cooked spicy breakfast sausage
cooked, chopped bacon (you’re turning on the oven for the nachos, so cook the bacon in there first!)
sliced fresh avocado (or guacamole)
chopped fresh cilantro
3-5 large eggs, scrambled and/or sunny side up
serve with: salsa or additional chopped tomatoes, sour cream, lime wedges. (I have no idea what the lime wedges are for. They just seem to go with everything else.)
Turn on broiler in oven to high. Line an ovenproof baking sheet with parchment paper for easier cleanup.
Spread out a layer of tortilla chips mixed with the cut waffles. Top chips and waffle quarters with black beans and shredded cheese.
(If you are using pre-cooked/leftover bacon and sausage, you can add to the nachos now so they warm as the cheese melts in the oven. Just be sure to watch closely so the cooked bacon and sausage don’t cook so much more to the point of burning.)
Place sheet under broiler, about 6-8 inches from the heat. Watch carefully, and remove once the cheese has almost completely melted. It’s okay if the chips get toasted on the tips. Ours took about 4 minutes.
While the chips and cheese are broiling, cook the eggs.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven. If you are using a separate serving plate, slide the chips/pancakes/melted cheese onto it.
Top with cooked breakfast sausage and cooked bacon.
Place the eggs on top.
Add tomatoes, sliced avocado, jalapeños, radishes, scallions (and cilantro if you want to taint your plate of nachos with that stuff).
