Preparation


1. Preheat oven to 400°. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; cook bacon 3 minutes or until golden, turning occasionally. Transfer to a plate.

2. In a large bowl, combine eggs, egg whites, chives, and pepper; stir well with a whisk. Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil to skillet; cook over medium-low heat, stirring until just cooked (about 5 minutes).

3. Arrange 4 waffles on a baking sheet; top each with 1/4 of scrambled eggs, bacon, and cheese. Top with remaining 4 waffles; bake in middle of oven until cheese is melted and waffles are crisp (about 4 minutes). Drizzle with syrup; serve immediately.
