Brown Sugar Bacon Waffles

One thing
I have loved to do
since I was a little girl
has been to dip bacon
in Maple Syrup.

So when I stumbled
upon this recipe
I knew is was
going to be a keeper.

Brown Sugar Bacon Waffles
(adapted from Joy the Baker)

For the Bacon:
10 slices of bacon
1/4 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Arrange bacon in a single layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle generously with brown sugar. Place in the upper third of the oven and bake until sugar is caramelized and bacon is brown and crispy, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Immediately remove bacon slices using a pair of tongs. Place them on a cutting board. Once cool, chop the bacon into bite size bits and set aside.

For the Waffles:
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
2/3 cups canola
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups buttermilk

In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and brown sugar. Whisk to blend. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, buttermilk and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and fold. Once almost fully incorporated, add the bacon bites. Stir. Try not to over mix the batter or the waffles will become tough. Cook according to your waffle machine instructions. Serve with maple syrup.
