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.

Bacon and Waffles. Can you think of anything more perfect? How about putting them together and making Bacon Waffles.

Ingredients

  • 5 slices, thick cut bacon (See Note)
  • 1 1/2 c milk
  • 1 1/2 Tb lemon juice
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1 Tb baking powder
  • ½ t salt
  • 1¾ c flour
  • 1 stick (1/2 c) unsalted butter, melted

Instructions

  1. To begin, fry the bacon in a large skillet until crispy. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the excess grease. Set aside for now.
  2. In your measuring cup, combine the milk and lemon juice. Set that aside for a moment.
  3. In your mixing bowl, beat the eggs until frothy. Add in the soured milk and give it a quick stir.
  4. Add in the baking soda, baking powder and salt. Then add in the flour and mix until the batter is smooth. Stir in the melted butter.
  5. Now for the bacon. Cut the bacon into thin slices, or dice it. Whichever you prefer. Add the cut bacon to the waffle batter and stir it together.
  6. Now make them according to your waffle-maker instructions.
  7. Enjoy!

Notes

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.

  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!
