This is my last post for the day...promise!
So - what do you think of when I say Bacon? Piggy goodness right? Now Waffles? Breakfast goodness? Thought so.
Someone had the ingenious idea to put the two together. I must say - in our house...anything with Bacon is a home-run. The husband once made a bacon log. That's right, sausage wrapped in bacon and then more bacon. He has made it twice now and I have yet to have any...I am big fan of living and not so much a fan of cardiac arrest.
I saw this somewhere and knew that it had to be tried.
Here is all you need:
Take an entrire package of bacon and lay them slice by slice on a baking sheet covered with foil that has lightly been sprayed with cooking spray. Then sprinkle a 1/4 cup of brown sugar on the bacon and then cook in a 375 degree oven for 10-15 minutes.
While the bacon is cooking away gather the waffle ingredients:
3 cups AP flour, 1 Tbl baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp salt, 1/4 c brown sugar, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 2/3 c canola oil, 4 eggs, 2 tsp vanilla and 2.5 c buttermilk
Get out the waffle iron so it can preheat.
Whisk together all the dry ingredients and once done make a well to later incorporate the wet. My well was not so stellar.
Now mix the wet ingredients and then gently fold into the dry. Do not overmix - lumps are not the enemy here.
After the bacon is out of the oven and cool enough to handle, do a rough chop
On half of the batch I went a little crazy and added about a cup of cheddar cheese. This should make the husband happy.
Let the delicious circles cool and then eat up. We froze ours since we made these after breakfast.
