Yield: 3 sandwiches
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
For the waffles
1 ½ cups Kodiak Cakes Protein Packed Buttermilk Flapjack & Waffle Mix
1 ½ cups cold water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
¾ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 green onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
Coconut cooking spray
For the sausage patties
½ pound ground pork (85/15 meat to fat ratio)
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon crushed fennel seeds
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon maple syrup
½ teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Make the waffles
Whisk waffle mix, water, and vegetable oil until smooth. Stir in cheese, green onion, and pepper. Let batter sit for a few minutes to thicken. Lightly spray a waffle maker with coconut cooking spray, then pour ½ cup of batter into each waffle mold. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes, or until the steam stops. Remove waffle and continue with remaining batter.
Make the sausage patties
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place pork in a large bowl and add spices; mix well. Form into 3 round patties. Heat oil in a large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Brown patties for 1 to 2 minutes per side, then transfer to a sheet tray and bake for 5 to 6 minutes, or until cooked through.
Fry eggs sunny-side up. Place 1 waffle on a plate; top with sausage patty. Drizzle with syrup, if desired, then slide egg on top of the sausage. Top with another waffle and serve immediately.
