Weekend Breakfasts…Bacon Waffle Benedict

During the school/work week, breakfasts have to be quick.  Yes, I cook breakfast every morning, but I can’t make super-creative, gluttonous, everyone-sits-down-together breakfasts…we simply don’t have the time. So, on the weekend, we like to have breakfast together.  Sometimes, it’s a simple bacon-eggs-toast breakfast.  Sometimes, it’s a fun oatmeal bar. A real treat weekend will have sausage gravy & biscuits or in this case, Eggs Benedict taken to the next level.
