In our home, Daddy's favorite meal is breakfast, and because of that we have "breakfast for dinner" often. One thing Dad likes is breakfast sandwiches made with waffles or pancakes, egg, cheese and sausage. We also enjoy a good strata, and on one recent "breakfast sandwich night" I got the idea to turn this handheld favorite into a one-dish-wonder. It turned out so well that I can see it being requested for many meals. Although it's delicious as-is, the maple syrup poured over the top takes it to the next delicious level.
