Want a simple twist on your average waffle?
I went to a new (to me) restaurant at a local hotel, and this is what I ordered. It was so much fun, and I really enjoyed the waffle more this way. It is such a simple idea to add a couple strips of bacon to your basic waffle, but I had never considered doing it before. I need to find a fabulous waffle recipe. Does anyone have one? If so, send me a link in the comment section or via email. I’ve tried a couple, but I’ve been underwhelmed and have just stuck with my Bisquick recipe. have a great Belgium waffle recipe. I wonder if that would work in a normal waffle iron too. Any advice on that? Our Belgium waffle maker fell apart. Here’s the technique you can do with your normal waffle recipe.
Make your waffle recipe and fry up your bacon to desired crispiness.
Pour down some waffle batter, criss cross two pieces of bacon (I broke one in half so the middle didn’t overlap too much) and pour a bit more batter on top. It takes a little practice to get the right amount of batter. Mine was spilling out a little bit at first. Such a fun way to impress a little bit at breakfast time.
Did you try my waffle recipe? Did you not like it?
Angie – I haven’t tried them yet. I actually had this post written a while back. I didn’t have time to make them and wanted to get this post up. I’m definitely going to try yours, and it would be a whole separate post I think.
I’ve never tried this in a waffle! Jeremy likes to chop the bacon up in little bits, fry up, and then mix into pancake batter (or sprinkle on as they cook). He also will do that with sausage. I don’t care for it much since I like my salty and sweets separate … but the kids LOVE it!
I think the sprinkled bits sound like a good idea too. I loved the presentation of this. 🙂
I love this idea. Sweet and salty together is one of my favorite flavors.
Thanks! I hope you will try it out!
I just got a waffle maker for Christmas. This recipe looks delicious!! I can’t wait to try it! This is the recipe I use for my waffles. My mom recommends replacing the milk with soda water. She swears it makes the waffles so light and fluffy, but I haven’t tried it yet.
1 3/4 c whole wheat flour
1 TB baking soda
1 3/4 c milk
1 tsp vanilla
4 TB butter
Thanks for the recipe! I’ll have to try it. It’s easier than my favorite recipe from Williams Sonoma. I’ll jot this one down. Thanks!
