Add some more flavor and protein by including Country-Style Beef Breakfast Sausage to Sunday brunch waffles.
Prepare Basic Country Beef Breakfast Sausage. Set aside. Whisk together baking mix, egg, milk and vegetable oil in large bowl until smooth. Stir in cheese and sausage.
Country-Style Beef Breakfast Sausage: Combine 1 pound Ground Beef (93% or leaner), 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage or 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage, 1 teaspoon garlic power, 1 teaspoon onion power, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add sausage mixture; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 1/2-inch crumbles, stirring occasionally.
Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions. Place 1/2 cup waffle batter in waffle iron for each waffle and cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until waffles are golden brown. Top with toppings, if desired.
Place leftover waffles in a single-layer in a food-safe plastic bag; close bag securely and store in refrigerator or freezer. To reheat refrigerated waffle, place waffle in a toaster and toast 4 to 6 minutes or until waffle is heated through. Frozen waffle can be reheated in a 350°F oven 15 minutes, or in a toaster 5 to 6 minutes.
