There's nothing like a perfectly cooked waffle to start or finish the day off right! Just a taste of these will instantly put you in a good mood. Preheat waffle iron. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Place baking sheet lined with cooling racks in oven. Cook 6 strips bacon until crisp; drain and set aside. Mix the following ingredients well in a large bowl:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar (light brown is best)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
Make a well in the center of the combined ingredients, set aside.
  • Whisk eggs in a small bowl, pour into center of dry ingredients
  • Add butter and buttermilk, and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined; this mixture will be lumpy. If too stiff, add a bit of buttermilk
  • Gently fold in bacon, cheese and onions
  • Coat waffle iron well with melted butter or cooking spray
  • Proceed making waffles, keeping finished waffles warm and crisp in oven on the baking sheet
Serve with warmed maple syrup, or maple-mustard sauce.
