When you think football food, whether it be tailgating or fixing snacks for a party at your house, what’s the first thing that comes to mind?  Burgers right??  Everyone wants a nice grilled juicy burger while they are watching football.  The two just go together.

MAPLE CHICKEN & WAFFLE MINI BURGERS 
YIELD: serves 3-4

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • salt & pepper to season
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 box Eggo Minis Homestyle Waffles {you probably won’t need quite the whole box}
  • butter
  • favorite burger fixings {lettuce, tomato, onions, etc}

COOKING DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mix together the ground chicken & maple syrup {use as much or as little based on your taste preference}. Season the meat with salt & pepper. Shape the chicken into tablespoon size balls.
  2. Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Using your hands, flatten the balls into patties & then place in the skillet. Cook until slightly brown on one side and then flip & cook the other side until cooked through & no longer pink, about 5 minutes per side. Repeat for each patty. Alternately, you can grill the chicken over medium heat for about 5 minutes per side or until preferred doneness.
  3. Thaw 2 Eggo Minis Waffles per chicken patty ~ I had 14 patties. Lightly butter one side of each waffle and then toast in a small skillet until just golden.
  4. To assemble: Place one cooked chicken patty on top of one Eggo Minis Waffle. Top the chicken with your favorite burger fixings. Top the burger with a second Eggo Minis Waffle.
