These waffles start with – of course – some bacon. I like to use a good, thick bacon.

Note: If you make this recipe using turkey or beef bacon to be biblically clean like I now do, you make need to add a little extra fat/oil to the skillet since non-pork bacon is very lean. Check out this article on Wholesome Skillet: How to Make Crispy Turkey Bacon

Soured milk gives these waffles a nice mock sour dough taste.

You can make these in a standard waffle maker or a Belgian waffle maker. I love my round one, because it flips to spread the batter and has a built-in timer.

Note: I no longer eat pork, however I am leaving recipes like this one up for those who enjoy it. Many pork recipes can be easily converted to turkey or chicken recipes, with little or even no other changes. Recipes with bacon or sausage can use alternatives like beef or turkey bacon. Many of those recipes are being updated with the changes. Article: Why I Quit Eating Pork

  1. Bacon has a way of making things better! Not that a good waffle needs much help. But the sweet and salty combo of maple syrup and bacon has me weak in the knees!
