These mini sausage and egg waffle sandwiches are the perfect breakfast or brinner! Fresh greens, melted cheddar, herbed scrambled eggs and breakfast sausage make the perfect bite.
Breakfast for dinner may be one of my most favorite meal mashups of all time. There’s something about the thought of pancakes after 6pm that fills me with a kid-like kind of excitement about dinner that just doesn’t happen when they’re on the table in front of me for breakfast.
It almost feels like cheating but in the best way possible because there’s nothing actually wrong with it AND it makes dinner super simple.

I’m teaming up with Jones Dairy Farm today to talk about all things BRINNER!
Whether it’s because you’re one of those people who are running out the door with no time to spare in the morning for a real breakfast or just because breakfast rocks and makes dinner decisions even easier, Jones Dairy Farm wants everyone to enjoy breakfast foods you love at the dinner table and considering February is National Hot Breakfast Month, it seems like the perfect time to do so!
Check out the video Nutmeg Nanny and I put together with 2 quick and easy brinner recipes!
When it comes down to it, waffles win in the world of breakfast foods for me.
Honestly, my waffle maker would be the last thing standing in my kitchen if I had to get rid of all the fancy gadgets and small appliances I own.
I heart that thing hardcore.
And if there’s anything better than waffles straight up, it’s waffles turned into breakfast sandwiches.
Stuffed with herbed scrambled eggs, Jones All Natural Golden Brown® Mild Pork Breakfast Sausage Patties and spinach they’re mini bites of breakfast heaven you can enjoy just as much after the sun’s gone down.
Oh yeah, the waffles are laced with sharp cheddar cheese too in case you needed some extra motivation to make them.
Jones has a whole site dedicated to brinner you can check out for tons more inspiration.
My favorite part is the quizzes section though.
If you’re one of those people that gets sucked into the rabbit hole that is Buzzfeed quizzes when you’re procrastinating work (and who doesn’t?), you’re gonna love these.
Find out things like “what’s your brinner style?” or “which product is your perfect match” so you can get your brinner game on point and start cooking!
And if you happen to find out sausage is your thing, may I humbly suggest some pretty darn delicious herbed cheddar sausage and egg waffle sandwiches to try out?
