When making the bacon for these waffles, be sure to save the bacon grease to incorporate into the batter – it gives the waffles a tasty smoky flavor. If that is too intense, vegetable oil can be used in its place.

Maple Bacon Waffles
INGREDIENTS

3½        cups unbleached, all-purpose flour


1/4        cup yellow cornmeal


1            teaspoon baking soda


¾          teaspoon kosher salt


8 to 10  slices cooked bacon, crumbled (about ½ to ¾ cup crumbled)


3          cups buttermilk


13       cup pure maple syrup


3          large eggs, lightly beaten


1          teaspoon pure vanilla extract


23       cup bacon grease and/or grapeseed or vegetable oil

Instructions

1.  Combine flour, cornmeal, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl; whisk to blend. Stir in the bacon to coat. Add the buttermilk, maple syrup, eggs, vanilla and the grease/oil. Whisk until combined. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using.


2.  Preheat the Cuisinart®  Waffle Maker to desired setting (a tone will sound when preheated).


3.  Pour 1 cup of batter onto the center of the lower grid of the preheated waffle maker; spread evenly using a heatproof spatula. Close cover of waffle maker. When tone sounds, waffle is ready. Open cover and carefully remove baked waffle. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
