SRC: Brown Sugar Bacon Waffles

Share!

Today is my group’s reveal day for the Secret Recipe Club. What is the SRC? Basically you are assigned a fellow participant’s blog by the organizer and then you pick a recipe of your choice from that blog and make your version of it. But it is a secret, you cannot reveal whom you picked and what you made until the established posting date and time.

This month I had the pleasure of discovering Sarah’s blog, The Pajama Chef. Fun facts about Sarah: she LOVES peanut butter, she trains for marathons, she is doing a Master of Library Science and a Master of Arts in African Studies, she has traveled to Africa (ethnic food, love it), and given the choice she would wear pajamas 24/7. I guess her powers of suggestions really worked on me because I felt a strong urge to do a breakfast recipe.

I rarely have bacon in the house because a package is a lot when you live alone. But I had one open from last weekend for a couple of recipes and right now I am bacon crazy! So when I saw the Brown Sugar Bacon Waffles recipe it was pretty much a done deal. I called up a friend I had not seen in a while and enticed her over with the waffles. I got an instant YES. So two girls, bacon, waffles, coffee, gossip…good times!

Ξ Brown Sugar Bacon Waffles Ξ
[originally from Joy the Baker]

Ingredients:

  • 5 slices bacon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and lay bacon out in a single layer. Sprinkle with 1/8 cup brown sugar. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until bacon is crisp and sugar is caramelized. Remove bacon from baking sheet to cool on a cutting board [they will stick to paper towels], then chop when cooled. BACON CANDYYYY!

 

Prepare your waffle iron, turn it on to preheat.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the dry ingredients–flour, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. In a smaller bowl, whisk the eggs, oil, buttermilk, and vanilla. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry, then add the chopped bacon. Do not overmix–batter will be lumpy.

Cook according to your waffle iron’s specifications. Serve with maple syrup and berries.

I really need to make these. I got a waffle maker for Christmas 2 years ago and would you believe I have yet to use it?! I don’t know what’s wrong with me, lol. I’m getting it out for this one though. 😉

Ohhhhh! This is a good one. I myself need to check it out! I love bacon too, even though I’m trying to lose some weights, there are certain exceptions that I have – like bacon, and taste tasting of any of my recipes (ice cream!! whoo hoo!). I can’t wait to try this out.

OMG…bacon IN the waffles. I ALWAYS dip my side of bacon with waffles or pancakes IN the maple syrup – so these waffles are like made for me. Then again, I better save them for the occasional Sunday brunch..even though daily would be heaven! They look awesome, Ev…I would have chosen these too! Your photos look great!

Wow, what a recipe. I love bacon in almost anything and I think this just might be the perfect marriage. How ridiculously lush. Sounds like good times.
