Happy National Waffle Day! Who knew there was a day devoted to waffles? But why not? They are pretty yummy. Here is a way to make waffles with bacon right inside! Wow. Takes your waffles to the next level.
1 cup complete pancake mix
3/4 cup water
2 TBS oil
Ready Cook Bacon (the kind that is already cooked, the heat and eat kind)
Heat your waffle iron.
Combine the pancake mix, water, egg and oil in a bowl. Stir until the lumps disappear. Allow the batter to rest a few minutes.
Lightly grease your waffle iron. Pour about a 1/4 cup of the batter onto each side of the waffle iron (follow your waffle irons directions).
Place two pieces of the ready bacon on top of each side of the batter.
Close the lid and cook until the steam stops. Remove and butter while warm.
Look how the bacon gets covered completely by waffle deliciousness. Like a secret treasure waiting to be discovered, Sorry, I get excited when bacon is involved.
These are so good! The sweetness of the waffle with the savory of the bacon works so well together.. Add some good cane syrup (or maple syrup) and it's pretty close to perfect.
Give these a try the next time you make waffles. You won't be sorry!
