I love to wake to the smell of sizzling bacon. I also looove coming home from a long day to the same smell of crispy bacon frying in a greasy pan. Basically any time is a good time for BACON! Last weekend I was working on an egg and bacon sandwich and accidentally made too much bacon..whoops. I could’ve just left it out on the counter and watched it disappear within an hour, instead though I decided to put it to better use by putting it in my dinner dish. Breakfast for dinner, that is.
These easy Bacon Waffles are surefire palette pleasers at my house for breakfast, brunch, or dinner.
Powdered sugar and maple syrup are the perfect compliment to the salty bacon; talk about a well balanced meal 🙂 There’s something so fun about changing the norm a bit. Even something as simple as switching up the order of meals can make me feel like I’m breaking some unwritten rule and that hey, I can if I want to! Besides, a little night-time sugar rush never hurt anybody, right?
If you have a ‘no sweets at night’ rule at your house, no sweat! Make these yummy Bacon Waffles in the morning. I always make extra so I can freeze and enjoy later—just toss in the toaster and serve warm, even the kids can do it!

|Bacon Waffles |
Preheat the waffle iron. Beat eggs until they start to look fluffy. Slowly add in milk, oil, sugar, salt, vanilla, baking powder, and flour until nice and smooth. Fold in the bacon crumbles (save a little to snack on while the waffles are cooking) 🙂
Apply cooking spray to the waffle iron, top and bottom. Pour the mixture evenly into the center of the iron, making sure not to get too close to the edges. Close the iron up and when the waffles are ready*,remove with tongs, slice into individual slices.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and drizzle maple syrup liberally on top. Mmmmm!
*Tip: Place a large cookie sheet under the waffle iron to catch any drips for easy clean up!
