8 homemade or thawed frozen waffles, cut into triangles (like tortilla chips)

1 pound breakfast sausage, crumbled and browned

1 tablespoon maple syrup 

2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar

6 eggs, cooked sunny-side up or over easy 

1 avocado, thinly sliced 

1/2 cup quartered cherry tomatoes 

3 scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced 

1 jalapeno, thinly sliced 

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 

Hot sauce, for serving, optional

Sour cream, for garnish 


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Put the waffle triangles on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 5 to 7 minutes to dry out a bit. Remove from the oven and turn on the broiler. 
  3. Top the waffles with the sausage, drizzle with the maple syrup and cover with the cheese. Cook under the broiler until the cheese has melted completely, about 2 minutes. Top the nachos with the cooked eggs, avocado slices, tomatoes, scallions, jalapeno and cilantro. Serve with hot sauce if desired and garnish with sour cream.
