There is very little in this life that compares to a well put together breakfast gravy. Biscuits and gravy are my holiday staple at the family's house. We thought we would have a little fun with it and give it a spin with Kodiak Cakes pre-made frozen waffles. These were great to have along our camping trip and were a nice, quick and easy breakfast to put together. Without doubt, one of the heaviest gut bombs Gordo's has provided yet. Hope you enjoy.

Ingredients:

  • 1# breakfast sausage blend
  • 1/4 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 tbs all purpose white flour
  • 12-36oz of half and half (Varies upon desired thickness of gravy)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Red chili flake to taste
  • 1 pack Kodiak Cakes frozen power waffles
  • Maple syrup if desired

Instructions:

  1. Begin by preheating your pan on the side burner of the forge 15. You'll be maintaining a nice even medium heat throughout the cooking process. Add your breakfast sausage blend to the pan and start to break it up into small crumbles. Working it around the pan and searing it all as evenly as possible. 5-7 minutes.
  2. Add 1/4 stick of unsalted butter to seared up sausage bits. Let the butter melt and sprinkle over your flour. Start mixing around and browning up the sausage. 3-5 minutes.
  3. Once all the pork bits have a nice caramelization occurring, add in your dairy. Half and half is preferred for extra richness over standard milk, but can be easily be substituted out. You can go light on the liquid content to keep the gravy obscenely thick. Bring to a simmer for around 5 minutes.
  4. When the gravy is coming up to a simmer it's time to add the Kodiak Cakes Power Waffles onto the grill and start toasting them. Recommend medium heat on the grill or temperature roughly around 350 degrees. Continue flipping for an even toasting while your gravy is simmering. Cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Once the waffles are nicely toasted, cut the heat on the gravy and add in seasoning. Salt, pepper and chili flake to taste. Once satisfied with the flavor, dump the gravy over the waffles. Feel free to add maple syrup for a little extra sweet with this savory breakfast.
  6. Enjoy!
