Day #51, Savory Waffle

Today's breakfast was the Savory Waffle. Yes, I skipped over the Farewell Rudy again, but I promise it was not intentional! I am quite happy to say that I enjoyed my breakfast (for the most part) today. A savory waffle is a waffle topped with French ham, Gruyere cheese, scrambled eggs, and a Dijon mustard sauce.

I thought this was such and interesting way to serve a waffle. I would never think to put eggs, ham and cheese on my waffle, let alone the Dijon sauce. It was a good combination though, the waffle has a hint of sweetness that went along well with the saltiness of the French ham. The Dijon sauce was not what I thought it would be, and it was much better than I had expected. It is a cream sauce, and it didn't have the overwhelming flavor that I thought it would.

In all honesty, I ate a quarter of this waffle. I liked it, but it was much too large, and heavy, for me to eat any more than that! It would be a great breakfast to share with someone, between two people all of it might be eaten.

I liked this waffle a lot more than I thought I would. I think I would like it a lot more with smoked turkey rather than ham, since that is my favorite. Maybe I'll run that as a breakfast special sometime!
