I usually pan fry my breakfast sausage patties. Sometimes I’ll cook them in the oven, but I prefer pan frying. I don’t like the mess, though. The splatter. The grease. So, when I came across this approach to cooking up sausages using a waffle iron I just had to try it. Waffled sausage patties… who knew?
In about 3 minutes you will have perfectly cooked waffled sausage patties, with a little bit of a crust to them. You know what I mean. GBD. Golden Brown Delicious. I don’t trust sausages that don’t have a bit of crust to them. It’s just not normal.
I can cook four sausages at a time on our little round Cuisinart waffle maker, which is perfect for the two of us. Cleanup was very easy, too!
- 4 sausage patties
- Heat your waffle iron on high.
- Add patties to iron and close lid. Do not press down on the lid.
- Cook about 3 minutes or until internal temperature of the sausages reaches 165 F.
