In our humble opinion, no breakfast is complete without a helping of crispy, melt-in-your-mouth bacon. But we're done relegating those delicious strips to the role of sidekick and instead promoting them to the starring role with these amazing cornmeal bacon waffles.
What You Need:
- 2 eggs
- 1¾ cups buttermilk
- 5 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ pound bacon, chopped
Step 1: Combine the eggs, buttermilk and melted butter in a mixing bowl.
Step 2: In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Step 3: Pour the wet ingredients in with the dry and stir until everything is thoroughly combined.
Step 4: Now it’s time for the bacon! Mix those delicious bits into the batter so they are distributed evenly throughout.
Step 5: Pour the batter into your waffle iron and cook until steam is no longer being emitted from the iron. Serve with butter, syrup and a hearty helping of more bacon.
