Maple Syrup Fried Eggs on Waffles

"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. This is very good and quick. Even better if you use homemade waffles. Yum.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. Oh, heck yes!! Where has this been all my life? Of course it would be better with homemade waffles, but for something quick, this totally works :) Needed more syrup in the end though, I like mine drowning in it :)
  5. I eat eggs, waffles with syrup all the time, just mashing them all together. But while your at it put bacon or slice of ham between waffle and eggs.


<p>Before I get to the details let me tell you how I rate recipes.....and tell you how I feel about others ratings! <br /> <br />5 STARS....This recipe was excellant, we liked it very much, the directions were very clear and if I made any minor substitutions I noted it. It would most likely be made again, many times! <br /> <br />4 STARS....This recipe was good, we liked it but I made changes either in taste or it was not clear in something, but I would consider making it again. <br /> <br />3 STARS....This recipe was not something that got approval from the majority. Either it just didnt work in preparation, directions, or taste. I will tell you why and would not make it again unless I altered it much! <br /> <br />2, 1 STARS.....I DO NOT give these as I feel they are NOT worthy....especially if the recipe previously had good reviews and by my giving a low one would jeopardize the ratings. I would appreciate this reciprocated with reviews to my recipes. <br /> <br />0 STARS....COMMENTS I will leave no stars and comments on something that did not work out for me and I will be honest and tell you why. <br /> <br />I DETEST IT WHEN PEOPLE CHANGE YOUR RECIPE OR DONT EVEN MAKE IT THEN LEAVE YOU LOW REVIEWS. PEOPLE WHO DO THAT ARE JUST BEING VINDICTIVE OR JUST PLAIN STUPIDLY CRUEL. Examples of some I've gotten would be: 1 star...This doesnt sound like something we would like 2 stars...too sweet for me, (this was on a all 5 star recipe). <br /> <br /> <br />Now for the details: <br />I was born, raised and still live in the same midwestern town where comfort food is what we thrive on, however my dream is to retire to the northwoods of Wisconsin.. (the sooner the better IMHO)! <br /> <br />I relish a recipe that is simple, quick and tastes great as I am a divorced mom to 4 very busy, active young adults (27, 25, 20 year old daughters and a 21 year old son.) Cooking time is at a premium as everyone is so busy, I never usually know who will be at my house for supper! I also try to find things that will reheat well. <br /> <br />I have worked for 30 years in the accounting field and presently semi retired. It is very nice for a change to not have to deal with the everyday stress of deadlines and office politics! It has been great cooking for pleasure, at my leisure, instead of to feed the troops! <br /> <br />Cooking relaxes me so I do it often and I love to cook for people who appreciate it. It is nothing for me to start a recipe at 10pm right before bedtime, and yes I have cooked all nite. Kind of a marathon!! <br /> <br />Cookbooks are my passion and I can't resist the ones that churches, schools etc. put together and well as the ones in the grocery stores. My collection numbers well over 2000 and where as some people go to bed with a good novel, my nightstand is full of cookbooks! <br /> <br />I love to bake and its nothing for me to make 15-20 different kinds of cookies and candies for the holidays. I guess that it has rubbed off on my oldest daughter who is a culinary school graduate and knee deep in pastry classes, hoping to become a pastry chef! <br /> <br />In March of 2002 I had gastric bypass, weight loss surgery and I have lost 125 pounds FOREVER, so now when I do cook it IS for everyone else to enjoy. <br /> <br />I love Zaar and all the friends I have made here, this sight is so addictive but yet so much fun! And the recipes aren't bad either..LOL! I know that in the years since Ive been a permanent fixture of this site I have acquired many great recipes and tons of cooks that I am proud to call my friends! I have also tried many foods that years ago I would never have even imagined.</p>
