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. It’s hard to get that crust if you bake your sausages. Well you can get it, but you’re going to have to bake them for a while or have them spend some time under the broiler. This is easier.
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.
