Satisfy your savory breakfast cravings with ‘Sausage Waffles’

(BPT) – Breakfast goes hand-in-hand with the age-old question: sweet or savory? If you are looking for something more savory to enjoy first thing in the morning, you’re not alone. A recent CARAVAN survey*, fielded by Big Village, found that 70% of Americans crave savory breakfast foods, and 7 in 10 Americans said they want to add more protein to their morning meal.

So, what’s the solution to this breakfast conundrum? Many would be surprised to find that it is possible to whip up a protein-forward dish that replaces a traditionally sweet breakfast in just minutes. Get ready to say goodbye to mid-morning sugar crashes and enjoy Sausage Waffles to satisfy your cravings for savory flavors!

A surprisingly easy, tasty and savory waffle recipe

Whether you’re trying to get your family out the door on a busy weekday morning or you want to enjoy a delicious but simple weekend meal, swap out that traditionally sweet doughy breakfast in favor of Sausage Waffles made from Jimmy Dean Brand Pork Sausage Roll.

The good news is that they are quick and easy to make. First, preheat your waffle maker for 5 minutes on the waffle setting (or until hot). Then place one sausage patty into each waffle cavity and cook for 4-5 minutes until the sausage patties reach 160 degrees Fahrenheit and are no longer pink. Pro tip: before cooking, place the Jimmy Dean Brand Pork Sausage Roll into the freezer for 10-15 minutes for easier slicing.

You can serve your savory waffles along with your favorite fruit, eggs or other breakfast foods for an effortless, tasty dish your entire family will love — or to take breakfast up another notch, try:
