Southwestern Waffle Benedict


Cheese Sauce

10 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American, chopped

1/2 cup milk

1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder or paprika


2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup milk

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted

1 tablespoon sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt


12 large Land O Lakes® Eggs


Chopped chives or green onions

Chopped red bell pepper

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine all cheese sauce ingredients in saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted and smooth. Reduce heat to low; keep warm.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat Belgian waffle iron to medium-high heat.

  3. STEP 3

    Beat 2 eggs in bowl until light yellow color. Stir in all remaining waffle ingredients just until moistened. Bake waffle batter according to manufacturer's directions until golden brown. Set waffles aside; keep warm.

  4. STEP 4

    Pour water into 12-inch skillet to 3 inches in depth. Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat. Break 1 egg at a time into custard cup or small shallow bowl. Hold dish close to water; slip egg into water. Repeat with remaining eggs. Cook 4-5 minutes or until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard. Carefully remove eggs from water with slotted spoon.

  5. STEP 5

    Place 1 waffle on serving plate; top with 2 poached eggs. Drizzle eggs with cheese sauce; sprinkle with chives and red bell pepper.

Tip #1

FDA guidelines for safe handling instructions recommend cooking eggs until white and yolk are firm.
