Maple Bacon Waffle Bake is great for breakfast, dinner or brunch and would be perfect for Christmas monring.
12 oz Bacon
6 Egg Yolks
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 Cups Milk
1 Cup Whipping Cream
1/2 Cup Real Maple Syrup
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Preheat oven to 375°F and lightly grease a casserole dish.
If using frozen waffles, toast them until crispy. If preparing homemade waffles, cook them until crispy before assembling this dish. Break the waffles into 1 inch pieces.
Cut the bacon into 1-2 inch pieces and cook on medium heat until crispy. Drain on paper towels.
Beat together egg yolks, salt, milk, whipping cream, maple syrup and vanilla in a large bowl. Add waffle pieces and bacon. Fold together until evenly moistened. Most of the liquid will absorb.
Pour mixture into baking dish and cover with foil. Bake for 1 hour. Uncover during the last 10 minutes.
