Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray. Arrange the bacon on the prepared baking sheet, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Bake in the preheated oven until the bacon is crispy and the brown sugar is caramelized, 10 to 15 minutes. Immediately remove the bacon to a cutting board; cut into small pieces and set aside.

  • Preheat a waffle iron; grease with cooking spray.

  • Whisk the flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Beat the eggs, buttermilk, vegetable oil, and vanilla together in a separate bowl; fold the wet mixture into the flour mixture. Add the bacon and stir, being careful to not over mix.

  • Ladle the batter into the preheated waffle iron and cook until golden brown; serve hot.

I saw this and had to try it out! I decided to go the easy route and use Bisquick with the added brown sugar vanilla and brown sugar-baked bacon. It was so delicious! Read More

I made the recipe as given. Though we liked it it definitely needed more bacon. Read More

WinCo had bacon on sale this week so this was a fun new way for me to use it in something homemade. These turned out absolutely perfect. i used whole wheat white flour but other than that I made no other changes. HUGE hit. HUGE. My husband and kids ate every single one. For me next time I'd use a better quality bacon. I used a cheap bacon and the results weren't as great as I'd hoped. My family didn't care--I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist. Read More

What a great twist on waffles.These are actually belgian waffles and they puff up A LOT! I'd recommend using a belgian waffle maker. I used a regular waffle iron and had to be sure not to shut it all the way or the batter would spill out even with less batter used. I found that if I held it almost shut but not completely that the batter fluffs up so much it'll still reach the top of the iron to cook. You can also freeze leftovers in sealable bags. Just stick them in the oven at 250 degrees just til warmed. Great recipe! I even made extra bacon and ate it alone! If you're looking for a strong bacon flavor I suggest using more than what the recipe calls for. Read More

these were good. Next time I'll use more bacon (10 slices) and double the brown sugar in the batter. The flavors are good but need to be enhanced more. We enjoyed these though and can't wait to make again with the improvements. Read More

These are very good but definitely need more bacon! Next time I will add a slice to the mix (I halved the recipe) and make 2 extra to sprinkle on top. Read More
