Bacon Belgian Waffles


  • 3 eggs separated
  • 1 1/2 c. buttermilk
  • 8 Tbsp. unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • Thin sliced bacon 1 slice per two waffles


  1. Have all the ingredients at room temperature. Preheat an oven to 200°F. Preheat a Belgian waffle maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the egg yolks. Whisk in the buttermilk, butter and vanilla. Over a sheet of waxed paper, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Add the flour mixture to the yolk mixture and whisk until smooth.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, fold half of the egg whites into the batter, then fold in the remaining whites.  Put your batter into your waffle maker and lay one piece of raw bacon across two waffles. Cook the waffles according to the manufacturer's instructions. Normally when the steam stops coming out, the waffles or done; check and if not crispy enough cook another couple of minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven.
  4. Serve the waffles with softened butter and some really good maple syrup
