Spicy Honey Breakfast Waffle Nachos

Good Morning 2017!

Now, because the "cleanse" that all of our bodies are craving doesn't begin until after all of the New Year's festivities have ended, we thought we would welcome this new year with a decadent, hangover curing, crowd pleasing tray of breakfast waffle nachos. 

It's been quiet around Better Happier, with our schedules a little crazier than usual, work travel popping up last minute, and all around holiday madness that we are slowly decompressing from. I wasn't planning on this being the first recipe of 2017 when it became a last minute add-on to our New Year's Eve plans, but it was too delicious (and maybe more importantly low-maintenance) not to share. 

With overnight guests staying after the ball dropped, we threw this hangover cure together with gluten-free waffles we had in the freezer, and topped it with the most addictive spicy honey. I bought Robert a bottle from Bushwick Kitchen over the holiday, and we are thoroughly obsessed, everyone was drizzling extra on top of each waffley bite. Perfect for a crowd and easy to throw together, I know I'm going to have a hard time not requesting that Robert make this while we try to behave ourselves in January.
