  • About

In my book, waffles are one of those foods that can be eaten any time of day. Although they are traditionally eaten at breakfast, alongside some bacon and eggs, here we put the bacon inside, adding savory bits to every bite. We love to serve these waffles for dinner, nestled up to some crispy fried chicken.


For the Candied Bacon

  • 10 slices thick-cut applewood-smoked bacon
  • ¼ cup maple syrup


To make the candied bacon: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Line up the bacon slices side by side on the prepared baking sheet. Brush both sides of each piece with maple syrup and cover both sides with brown sugar.
