Summer is an amazing time. Not only is the weather warm and beautiful, but summertime fruit is just.. yum. Right now peach season is in full swing and I have the perfect recipe to use them all up. This peach waffle breakfast sandwich will keep you in a good mood for the entire day. Peaches are not only sweet and juicy, they are also low calorie, high fiber, and rich in potassium and Vitamins A & C, if you are into that kind of thing.
Peach Waffle Breakfast Sandwich
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
3/4 tsp sea salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup olive oil
1 1/4 cup milk
1 tbsp honey, plus extra for topping
1 peach, ripe, diced
1 package turkey bacon (about 8 slices)
8 oz cheddar cheese, sliced
8 oz fresh arugula
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lay your turkey bacon in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, or until crisp. Remove baking sheet from oven and let bacon cool.
2. Preheat the waffle iron. Mix the whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon together. In a separate bowl, whisk the olive oil, milk, eggs and honey.
3. Combine ingredients from both bowls and mix evenly. Do not overmix, there should still be lumps in the batter. Mix the peaches into the batter slowly and carefully. Scoop 1/4 cup of batter into your waffle iron and cook until set, then set aside and let cool.
4. Assemble each sandwich by layering cheese, turkey bacon, then arugula on one half of the waffle and then folding your waffle over the toppings. Top with extra peaches and serve with a small side of honey.
