Cheese and bacon waffle

My girl who has had enough of sweet waffles from the new waffle iron suggested this combination. Strange as it sounds, bacon and cheese on freshly cooked  waffle is one of the best snacks ever created in my kitchen.  The waffle is crispy and airy yet its texture is firm enough to hold the bacon and cheese.

It was a good thing she has self control – we polished off two waffles while the iron was cooking the next set. My only regret? Not doubling the amount of ingredients so that we could ‘sample’ more of these yummies.

Method :

  1. This sounds good! A savory waffle with bacon can't go wrong :)

  2. Hi! Unbelievable that savory waffle could be so right. I did this twice. Daughter has a couple more recipe suggestions which I shall try soon..
