There being just me, I cheated and used frozen waffles, toasted to a nice crisp, and the end result was outstanding. Nice idea for a quick lunch.

Always looking for new ways to serve breakfast for dinner. This recipe shot up to the head of the list as a hearty, delicious member of that class. Especially good for me, who believes all food is better in a sandwich!

We love this recipe. I often make it for a quick dinner. I usually double the recipe to feed my family and have enough leftovers for lunch the next day. I also do not separate my eggs. To lower the fat content I use 1T butter or Smart Balance and I will use bacon bits instead of bacon.
