What is it about breakfast? Not only is it the most important meal of the day, it’s the best, by far. The old stand-bys like eggs, bacon, and toast work well on their own, of course. But when combined, they become some kind of super-meal, achieving near-sentience while delivering a flavor explosion unlike any other.

I’m one of those separate food types you see at meals, you know, not allowing different dishes to touch each other on the same plate. I don’t really know why–maybe it has something to do with my absolute abhorrence of fruit salad–but there are exceptions. Thanksgiving, and breakfast. So I’ve come up with a delicious and simple way to deliver breakfast perfection to your plate.

Grab these:

  • Bacon (I used turkey to keep this slightly healthier.)
  • Eggs, from our delightful chickens, of course.
  • Waffles
  • Maple syrup
  • Cheddar cheese (I prefer extra-sharp Tillamook , but any will do.)

Cook the bacon in a nonstick skillet or griddle until crispy.

Fry the egg, sunny side up, over medium-low heat for about six to eight minutes.

Make a waffle. I just used a recipe straight from the Joy of Cooking, as I’m too much of a homemade waffle rookie to come up with my own recipe yet.

Heat the syrup.

Shred the cheese.

Then stack, from the bottom: waffle, bacon, then syrup.

Top with the egg, sprinkle cheddar cheese over it all, and devour.
