Maple Syrup Fried Eggs on Waffles

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

From a Canadian website and posted for the Zaar World Tour to Canada. This is a different way to cook eggs and a yummy one at that! It sure is simple enough. *UPDATE* to the hype about this recipe! A non stick pan is a MUST..once I did these over the campfire in cast iron and burned the heck out of the syrup, BUT that may have been my fault! YES I have done brown and serve sausages in the pan with the syrup, just add a little more syrup. AND I have even done the sausages with some thinly sliced apples in a little butter and the syrup, cooked til tender then add the eggs and a little more syrup. I personally don't like fried eggs or runny yolks, so for my portion I tend to break the yolk and loosely scramble the egg before dropping it in the hot syrup.....then I just let it cook kind of like and omelet with out mixing it too much until it sets then dump the whole thing on the waffle! In a pinch we have this with frozen french toast BUT it is so much better with a nice fat crunch eggo!


  1. Over medium heat, in a non-stick skillet, heat maple syrup.
  2. Break eggs into maple syrup.
  3. While eggs are cooking, toast waffles.
  4. When eggs have been cooked to desired doneness, place on waffles, pouring hot maple syrup over top.
  5. Serve immediately.

This is very good and quick. Even better if you use homemade waffles. Yum.

Oh no. Total New Addiction. I typically eat eggs alone or on a sandwich for breakfast, as does DH. I LOVE waffles, and thought I'd give this a try. This is both our favorite breakfast fix. I used Recipe#1317994 for the waffle here which I think balanced the sweetness of the syrup perfectly, and toasted them to get a bit of a 'crunch' factor. I used light syrup which worked perfectly. On a subsequent batch (yup - we had seconds!) I added a Tablespoon of Smart Balance for a buttery flavor which we also really liked. Thank you so much for a fantastic recipe. It's the breakfast I'll be serving to company!

This was great! I love eggs with pancakes so I knew I would like this one!!! I was worried that the syrup would stick to the pan with the eggs, but it doesn't! Great Canadian Breakfast Recipe! UPDATED TO ANSWER SOME POPULAR QUESTIONS: *I let the syrup get hot before adding the eggs. I cooked them on medium in a non stick pan and patiently waited until it was time to turn them. *There is not enough syrup in the pan to make them splash. *They do not stick to the pan, they sort of slide around in the syrup. * No, I did not add butter. * There is no splatter like grease. * I don't know if you can cook sausage in the same pan.... I don't see why not? * *No they really are not sickly sweet and you do not need to add syrup to the waffles after.... the syrup flavored eggs give it the perfect amount of sweetness. * Yes, I added syrup, but it was only for the photo to get the "syrup effect”. I have made them again without adding syrup and liked them even more.
