Maple Bacon Waffles

Maple Bacon WafflesBased on the food competition shows Adam and I tend to watch, bacon has settled in nicely as a fashionable accessory to otherwise sweet foods. Bacon being pretty well its own food group in our house, it seemed only natural to try it in my next waffle experiment. These were a big hit in our family. In fact, this was the first batch of waffles we completely polished off at one sitting. YUM!

8 slices bacon (½ lb)
⅔ c almond butter (6 oz)
6 eggs
4 T butter, softened
1½ t baking powder
3 T maple syrup
  1. Cook bacon until crisp. Drain between layers of paper towels.
  2. Blend together remaining ingredients until smooth.
  3. Crumble bacon into batter and stir until well mixed.
  4. Brush a small amount of butter or oil over cooking surface.
  5. Pour a generous ⅓ c batter onto waffle iron and cook for 2½-3 min.
  6. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing surface between every other waffle.
  7. Waffles may be enjoyed immediately or frozen and toasted.
