Maple Bacon Waffles

(4 servings)

  • 8 slices of bacon - cooked and crumbled
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 and 1/3 cups milk
  • 2 large eggs - lightly beaten
  • 2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons butter - melted
This recipe makes 8 waffles.

Preheat your waffle iron.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.

In a separate smaller bowl, beat together the milk, eggs, syrup and butter.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until until just-combined.

Dollop batter onto waffle maker in approximately 1/3 cup amounts. Sprinkle each waffle with 1/8 of the bacon crumbles. Close the lid and cook according to the instructions for your waffle iron.

To keep finished waffles warm as you make more, place them on a cookie sheet in the oven set to 200 degrees.

Serve waffles warm with softened butter and warm maple syrup.

This waffle has a great unique combination of flavors. The sweetness of maple syrup mixed with the heartier somewhat-salty flavor of the bacon is divine.
