Introduction: Bacon Waffles
Do you ever get tired of eating multiple things for breakfast? Are you just too tired in the morning to do all that chewing? No more! Now you can eat bacon and waffles at the same time, with just a few simple steps.
Step 1: Bacon Prep
First, pick out your bacon. You will need 2 strips of bacon per waffle you want to make. We used thick sliced bacon because it's delicious.
To cook the bacon, you can pretty much use whatever method you want. For simplicity, we lay the bacon out on a broiler pan and stick it in the oven on the broiler setting.
As your bacon cooks, gather the rest of your supplies. You will need:
your waffle maker
oil (we used olive oil)
When your bacon looks like this, it is about halfway done.
Take it out of the oven and flip each piece over, then place the pan back in the oven.
While your bacon finished cooking, mix together your waffle ingredients.
Our waffle recipe is 2 cups Bisquick, 1/2 cup of milk, 2 tablespoons of oil and 1 egg.
Whisk the ingredients together until smooth, and if necessary, add milk and whisk until the batter is runny, as illustrated in the second picture.
At this point, turn your waffle maker on to preheat.
When your bacon looks like this picture, it's done! Bacon should be fully cooked and crispy.
Take your bacon out of the oven and place the number of strips you need on a cutting board (2 full strips per waffle).
Cut your strips in half with your preferred cutting tool. Pictured here is an ulu, or an all-purpose knife from Alaska.
When your waffle maker is hot, gather your bacon and your waffle mix near.
Do not feed the dog with sad puppy eyes, this bacon is for you!
Lay one half of a strip of bacon in each section of the waffle maker.
You can also use little pieces of bacon, if you like.
Pour waffle mix over the bacon strips, mostly covering them.
Close your waffle iron and wait!
Check your waffle when the timer goes off, and if it is golden brown, your bacon waffle is done!
Glorious bacon waffles!
If you are making multiple waffles, you can keep them warm in the oven. We set them on a baking sheet and put them in the oven at 170 until they are all done.
Do not feed the other hungry dog either.
Once all the waffles are done, breakfast is ready! We put margarine and syrup on them, but you can do whatever you want! We also eat the extra bacon as a side, of course.
