Brown Sugar Bacon Waffles!!!

I am IN LOVE with these waffles. They are the best tasting things I have ever tried. SERIOUSLY. You would think that brown sugar and bacon ...Eww. But, really ... they will change your life. So here we go ...

Ingredients:

10-12 slices ... BACON

1/2 cup ... BROWN SUGAR (bacon)

3 cups ... FLOUR

1 tbsp ... BAKING POWDER

1 tsp ... BAKING SODA

1 tsp ... SALT

1/4 cup ... BROWN SUGAR (waffles)

2/3 cup ... VEGGIE OIL

4 large ... EGGS

2 tsp ... PURE MAPLE SYRUP *

1 tsp ... VANILLA EXTRACT

2 1/2 cup ... BUTTERMILK**


* Maple syrup extract will work as well. Just DO NOT use the syrup you put on the waffles or the pancakes it has been watered down.

**If you do not have buttermilk, you can use regular milk. For every cup of buttermilk needed use the same amount of milk. Add a TBSP of lemon juice or white vinegar per cup. Stir and let sit for at least 5 minutes so the milk can "sour".

TOOLS:

Waffle Maker

Cookie Sheet

Foil

2 Mixing Bowls

Whisk

Cooking Spray

Cutting Board

Lets begin:

Bacon

1 - Preheat oven to 375 f

2 - Cover cookie sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray

3 - Place bacon on cookie sheet and cover all the pieces with 1/2 cup of brown sugar


4 - Bake for 10 to 15 minutes

While the bacon is baking, began the steps for the waffle batter.

5 - Remove from oven and take the bacon off the cookie sheet IMMEDIATELY and place onto the cutting board for cooling. DO NOT use paper towels because it will stick to it.





Waffles

1 - Warm your waffle iron

2 - Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and brown sugar into a bowl with the whisk


3 - In the second bowl whisk eggs, oil, buttermilk, vanilla, and maple syrup together. Make sure it is well combined.

4 - Add the wet mix to the dry mix and HAND whisk until ALMOST combined.


5 - Cut bacon into bite size pieces and add to batter. Do not over mix or the waffles will be tough when cooked.



6 - Cook the waffles following your waffle maker instructions.


7 - EAT and ENJOY!!
