Bacon Cheddar Apple Waffles
Recipe type: breakfast
Waffles benefit from a gentle hand. Just fold the ingredients together without over-stirring. In our recipe below, the eggs and buttermilk work best together if they are at room temperature. If you have the time, whip the egg whites and fold them in to create a lighter, fluffy version
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 2 cups buttermilk (or whole milk)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 8 pieces crispy cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and diced
  1. Combine the flour, soda, baking powder and salt. Add in the eggs and buttermilk. To liquefy the honey a bit, add the honey to the butter as you melt it and combine both into the waffle batter. Fold in the cheese, bacon and apple bits.
  2. Commercial waffle makers vary in style and instructions. Pour the recommended amount of batter into a prepared waffle iron (I usually lightly butter even a nonstick waffle iron) and cook for recommended length of time (usually no more than five minutes).
Makes 6-10 waffles, depending on your waffle maker.
