Bacon Waffles

What better way to start off the day than with the aroma of the ultimate comfort food ~ bacon.  It seemed like a good day to start off with a nice breakfast since there's been a break in the 90+ degree weather and high humidity outside.  A piece of bacon is in almost every bite and it adds that bit of saltiness that works well no matter if you want maple syrup or a berry one.  It works well with bit of apple butter as a topping too.  

Bacon Waffles

6 slices of bacon, cooked, drained and crumbled
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsp sugar
2 large eggs, separated
3 tbsp butter, melted and cooled

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

Sift all dry ingredients into a large bowl.  In a small bowl, beat egg whites until light and fluffy.  Gradually mix buttermilk, egg yolks and butter into dry ingredients.  Gently fold in the egg whites.  Add in the bacon pieces.

Bake per your waffle makers instructions.
