FOR THE GRAVY, MELT:
FOR THE SANDWICHES, TOP:
Don’t feel relegated to waffles. If you’re not into them, try brioche buns, biscuits, or simply toast, they’ll all taste good.
If you’re not a fan of Honey Bunches of Oats, lots of other cereals are fine to use instead. Just steer clear of cereals that are overly sweet — the coating could burn when frying the chicken.
For the chicken, place flour, egg, and cereal all in separate shallow dishes. Dredge tenders in flour, shaking off excess; coat with egg, allowing excess to drip off, then coat in cereal, pressing to adhere. Chill breaded tenders while making the gravy.
For the gravy, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cayenne; cook 1 minute.
Whisk in milk and honey until smooth, then cook gravy, whisking, until it thickens and comes to a simmer. Cook gravy 1 minute, then season with salt and nutmeg; keep warm until ready to serve.
Heat 2 inches of oil in a sauté pan over medium to maintain a temperature of about 350°. Fry tenders, flipping halfway through, until cooked through and deep golden brown on both sides, 5–6 minutes.
For the sandwiches, top 2 waffles with Canadian bacon, chicken tenders, eggs, desired amount of gravy, and remaining 2 waffles. Serve any extra gravy on the side for dipping.
