I think I’ve mentioned I love bacon.  Here is a quick breakfast recipe with bacon, but not exactly in the fashion one usually expects. Bacon inside a waffle. Yes, I said inside. Like the prize inside a box of crackerjacks, but better!

This bacon waffle concept works just was well with waffle/pancake mixes and since there is absolutely nothing healthy about this meal, there is no reason to feel bad for not making the batter from scratch.


Bacon Waffles

1 3/4 cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 3/4 cups whole milk
2 large eggs
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter, melted
1 package of bacon

Whisk flour, sugar and baking powder in large bowl. Add milk, eggs and melted butter and whisk until blended. Let batter sit while cooking the bacon.

Prepare bacon in your preferred method, try to press pieces to keep flat. I cook mine on the stove, but the over works too.

Heat waffle iron and brush with oil or leftover bacon fat. Pour enough batter onto each waffle grid to cover generously and lay cooked bacon across the batter, the bacon will settle to the middle and the batter will cook around it.  Close waffle iron and cook until waffles are golden brown and crisp on both sides, 5 to 6 minutes.
