Mix crumbled cooked bacon in a homemade waffle batter for a unique breakfast treat that the whole family is sure to love.
1/2 pound sliced bacon
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs, at room temperature
Maple syrup, for serving
How to Make It
Cook bacon until crisp. Drain and then coarsely crumble.
Plug in an electric waffle iron to preheat.
Meanwhile, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl; whisk together to blend.
Pour milk in a glass measuring cup and microwave for 1 minute at full power to heat slightly. Pour into medium bowl; whisk in melted butter and eggs. Add liquid ingredients to flour mixture, whisking just until blended.
Grease waffle iron with cooking spray. Spread about 1/3 cup batter over each iron (or appropriate amount according to manufacturer's directions) and sprinkle 1/8 of bacon on top. Close waffle iron and cook until done. Repeat with remaining batter and bacon. Serve with warm syrup if desired.
We have been putting bacon in waffles for at least 55 years. My mom did it all my life and I am sure long before.
The flavor of the bacon marries well with maple syrup and are delicious together. My husband, son, daughter in law and grandchildren love to have grandma's bacon waffles. I have done them for Christmas brunch and they get rave reviews. They also taste good with cooked apples on top (sort of like apple pie filling) for the fancier presentations. I sometimes cut corners by using a mix and bacon bits when it is just for Husband and I.
