Here’s a Sunday morning breakfast for you to enjoy with your family: Maple- Bacon Waffles
We are slightly obsessed with a few breakfast-related things in my house >>
#1: Sunday Morning Breakfast: Ever since I was very little, Sunday mornings have been reserved for doing something very special for breakfast. All week long we eat cereal, English muffins, Greek yogurt and the occasional egg. So by the time Sunday rolls around, it’s time for something that feels extravagant, like waffles!
#2: BACON: Yes, it’s true… my family loves their bacon. My favorite way to cook it is in the oven (400 degrees, lie bacon on a foil-lined pan, 20 minutes or so). It’s no-fuss, totally simple to do, and so much easier to clean up than a frying pan full of grease. Bacon added to waffles is a delicious idea… mostly because when it’s combined with maple syrup, it’s even more amazing.
#3: REAL Maple Syrup: I ate the reduced calorie syrup for a zillion years before I realized that it has hardly any actual maple in it at all. So now it’s 100% pure maple syrup all the way in our house. You only need a little bit- it has so much more flavor than the fake stuff. Get into it!
These waffles have bacon inside and out. They turn out perfectly crispy, like a good waffle should. Enjoy them for your Sunday weekend breakfast! I freeze leftovers to be heated up for breakfast during the week.
Maple- Bacon Waffles
Prep Time:15 min
Cook Time:30 min
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups milk (I like to use whole)
3 tablespoon maple syrup
2 tablespoons melted butter
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
8 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled (divided)
maple syrup, for serving
1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, syrup, butter and eggs. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until moistened.
2. Preheat your waffle iron. Coat your waffle iron with nonstick spray. Spoon batter onto the waffle iron and sprinkle with a little bit of bacon. Cook 4 to 5 minutes or until done. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve topped with additional crumbles of bacon and warm maple syrup.
