Ingredients of Breakfast Grilled Cheese:

  • 1/3 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup small-curd cottage cheese
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar, plus more for topping
  • 4 frozen waffles (untoasted)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons jam (any flavor)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, plus more if needed
  • Ground cinnamon, for topping

Directions for Breakfast Grilled Cheese:

  1. Mix the cream cheese, cottage cheese and confectioners’ sugar in a medium bowl. Spread 2 waffles with the jam, then top with the cream cheese mixture; cover with the remaining 2 waffles.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sandwiches and cook until golden and crisp, about 3 minutes per side, adding more butter to the pan if needed. (Adjust the heat if the waffles are browning too quickly.)
  3. Let the sandwiches rest 1 minute before serving. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and cinnamon.
