Joy the Baker has a mouth watering recipe for Brown Sugar Bacon Waffles and I was lucky enough to get a waffle maker for Christmas from the G-parents. So, we put it to VERY good use this weekend and made this recipe. Luckily Chris is visiting so none of them went to waste. I love having an extra mouth to feed 🙂
We also popped champagne and poured the OJ because no Saturday morning breakfast is complete without a mimosa!
I was very afraid of the calories packed into this brown sugar bacon, it was a difficult thought to consider.
Once I tasted it, my worries melted away…Joy the Baker had officially made our day! (I’m a poet and I didn’t know it)
I wish I could take the credit for putting caramelized bacon INSIDE of a waffle, but I can’t. Here’s how to make Brown Sugar Bacon Waffles:
Brown Sugar Bacon
10 slices of bacon
1/4 cup brown sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with non stick cooking spray and line with foil. Arrange bacon in a single layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle generously with brown sugar. Bake until sugar is caramelized and bacon is brown and crispy, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Immediately remove bacon slices using a pair of tongs. Place them on a cutting board (not paper towels, they’ll stick!) to cool before chopping. Once cool, chop the bacon into bite size bits and set aside.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
2/3 cups canola
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups buttermilk
Preheat your waffle iron
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and fold.
Once almost fully incorporated, add the bacon bites. Stir. Try not to over mix the batter or the waffles will become tough. Cook according to your waffle machine instructions.
