Maple Bacon Waffle Bake

Maple-Bacon-Waffle-Bake

 Maple Bacon Waffle Bake is great for breakfast, dinner or brunch and would be perfect for Christmas monring.

 

Ingredients:
6 Waffles
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.

Yield: 6-8 Servings

Peanut Butter Waffles

 

I usually stick with the same waffle recipe, but I saw this one in an issue of Everyday Food and had to try it.  Chloe really liked these too!  We were out of syrup so I made a blackberry sauce to go with them, which is a modified version of a recipe from Weelicious.com.

 

Ingredients:
1 3/4 Cups All-Purpose Flour
2 Tablespoons Sugar
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter, melted
6 Tablespoons Creamy Peanut Butter
2 Cups Buttermilk
2 Large Eggs
3 Bananas, sliced for topping
For Blackberry Sauce –
12oz Frozen Blackberries
2 Tablespoons Honey
1/4 Cup Water
1 Tablespoon Cornstarch

 

Preheat waffle iron. If you want to keep the waffles warm while cooking the others, preheat oven to 275°F and place a wire rack on a baking sheet and put in oven.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl.

Blend the butter and peanut butter together in a blender.  Add the buttermilk and eggs and blend until just combined.  Pour over the flour mixture, stirring until just combined.

Spray the preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray.  Ladle about 1/2-3/4 cup of waffle batter onto the waffle iron.  Cook until browned.  Keep warm in oven.

 

To make the blackberry sauce:

Combine the berries and honey in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.  Smash them with a wooden spoon once they are defrosted.

Mix the water and cornstarch together in a small bowl.  Pour into the saucepan and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

 

Serve the waffles with sliced bananas and blackberry sauce.

Waffles

This is my absolute favorite waffle recipe.  It comes from Alton Brown from the food network.

Ingredients:
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
3 eggs, beaten
2 ounces unsalted butter, melted
16 ounces buttermilk
Non-stick cooking spray, for waffle iron

Preheat a waffle iron.

In a large bowl, combine the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar.

In a smaller bowl, whisk together the eggs and butter.  Pour in the buttermilk, whisk to combine.  Pour this onto the flour mixture.  Stir to combine.  Let rest 5 minutes.

Ladle onto the waffle iron and cook until golden brown.  Best if served right away.  They can also be kept warm in a 200°F oven, but they will not stay crispy.
