Equipment

  • 1 Mixing bowl
  • 1 Spoon or spatula for mixing
  • 1 Mini Waffle Maker (I have this one from Amazon)

Ingredients
  

  • 1 serving protein pancake mix (I used Clean Simple Eats (code TAMI), but Kodiak Cakes or another brand work great, too)
  • 2 slices Canadian bacon (I used the Jones Dairy Farm brand)
  • ½ cup liquid egg whites
  • 1 tbsp Sugar-free preserves (I used the Polaner brand)
  • 1 Light Swiss cheese wedge (I used Laughing Cow)
  • Cooking spray

Instructions
 

  • In a small mixing bowl, make protein waffle batter according to package directions.
  • Plug in your mini waffle maker and allow griddle to heat up.
  • Once griddle is hot, spray with cooking spray and add half of your waffle batter to the griddle. Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes and remove. Repeat with the remaining waffle mix so that you have 2 waffles and set aside.
  • Spray griddle with cooking spray and pour liquid egg whites into the waffle maker. Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes, remove waffled egg and set aside.
  • Add Canadian bacon slices to the waffle maker and allow to brown for 1-2 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  • Spread jam over both waffles. Then spread the cheese wedge overtop of the jam.
  • Time to build the sandwich! Add egg white patty and Canadian bacon slices to one side of the waffles. Top with the reaming waffle & enjoy!

Notes

Customize your sandwich by swapping the egg whites for a whole egg or switching up the meat used. Turkey bacon or sausage patty work great here, too! If you don’t like the sound of jam on your sandwich, skip it! You can also add a slice of cheese to your sandwich.
