Brown Sugar Bacon Waffles - because every day deserves bacon! #baconmonth

Most often, I like to switch a recipe up and adapt it to my own tastes. However, there are times, like in today’s brown sugar bacon waffles recipe, where I find a recipe that’s perfection in its own right and no substitutions are necessary. This recipe is from the amazing, talented Joy the Baker.

I first came to know Joy and her amazing recipes when I participated in the Sundays with Joy baking group a couple of years ago.  My mouth would water as I poured over the pages of her cookbook, and my taste buds tingled at the first tastes of the Oatmeal Raspberry Ginger Scones and the Orange Gingerbread Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.  When I saw this recipe for brown sugar bacon waffles, I didn’t hesitate to make a batch for these Bacon Month festivities!

Sweet candied bacon is tucked inside of tender buttermilk waffles. Can you say "yummi breakfast?"
WHAT'S NEEDED
  • 5 thinly sliced pieces bacon (thick cut bacon isn't recommended)
  • 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
HOW TO MAKE IT
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and lay bacon out in a single layer. Sprinkle with 1/8 cup brown sugar and place pan into the oven.
  3. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until bacon is crisp and sugar is caramelized. Remove bacon from baking sheet to cool on a cutting board. (Don't use paper toweling...the bacon will stick to it!) then chop into small, bite sized pieces when cooled.
  4. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and brown sugar. Whisk to blend. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, buttermilk and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and fold. Once almost fully incorporated, add the bacon bites. Stir. Try not to over mix the batter or the waffles will become tough. It’s okay if a few lumps remain in the batter.
  5. Pour 1/2 cup batter into preheated waffle maker. Cook according to manufacturer's directions. Repeat 3 more times.

 

Look at this bacon-y goodness!
