Cheddar chive waffles with sausage sauce and a perfectly soft fried egg? There is nothing I have not loved about this breakfast. I have a well-known love for salty waffles and this combination was irresistible.

My beloved sausage sauce has an unexpected depth of flavor from plenty of fresh rosemary and is truly the best sausage sauce I have ever tasted. I'm not alone in that either, because everyone who's ever tried it praises it. I had the idea to pour the sauce over waffles a couple of years ago, similar to cookies and sauce. I served buttermilk waffles with sausage sauce a couple of times and I really liked the combination.

However, it was not a case of LOVE at the first bite until I tried to pour the sausage sauce over these Cheddar and Chive Wadles. A generous pinch of strong cheddar cheese and a handful of chopped chives add a fresh, flavorful flavor that pairs well with the rich sauce. Topped with an Egg, Cheffdar Chive Waffles with Sausage Sauce are vying for my favorite breakfast this year

If you're not ready for a full sauce breakfast, waffles are absolutely delicious on their own. I usually make extras to freeze. We roast them later and eat them uncontrollably. Sometimes I serve plain waffles with soft eggs on the side for dipping.

Salty waffles

Salty waffles are my thing these days and there are countless variations that I know you are going to love. In fact, I have a couple of more saved waffle recipes to share soon. We all love a hot breakfast and since the waffles freeze wonderfully, they make it possible to have a hot meal ready for the morning with very little effort.
