Chicken & Waffles Casserole
Perfect for breakfast or dinner, this cheesy casserole features chunks of fried chicken and pieces of fluffy Belgian waffles drizzled with sweet honey and bound together with creamy eggs.
- 1 lb fried chicken, strips or popcorn- cut into 1" chunks
- 6-8 frozen Belgian waffles, cut into 1" cubes
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 6 large eggs
- 1 1/4 cups half and half
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- salt & pepper, to taste
Spray a casserole dish with non stick cooking spray. Layer 1/2 the chicken, then 1/2 the waffles, and half the cheese. Repeat.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, half & half, maple syrup, and salt & pepper, to taste- until the mixture's smooth and evenly incorporated.
Slowly pour the mixture evenly out over the casserole. Cover the mixture tightly with syran wrap and refrigerate for an hour.
Bake the casserole for 45 minutes at 325 degrees. Remove from the oven, and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve drizzled with maple syrup (optional).
