bacon waffles with peanut butter maple sauce



This year marks 15 years that I've been with my company. For this milestone they gave me a catalogue of prizes to choose from. I chose to get a gift card. With that gift card I got a WAFFLE MAKER! I love waffles. Whenever I stay in hotels, the first thing I as is "Does your breakfast include waffles?" Hotel waffles are one of my favorite foods. So I've been wanting a waffle iron forever, I just needed a good excuse to splurge on one. I bought a cheapy one a few years ago, but got my money's worth and I threw it out after 3 uses. So disappointing. This new one should make me much more happy.



I initiated my waffle make into Iron Stef kitchen by making bacon waffles. Since it was a late night and I am new at making waffles, I opted to use a waffle mix, and just replaced some of the oil with bacon grease and added crumbled bacon. I topped them with a syrup/sauce made with a combo of peanut butter (2 parts), maple syrup (1 part) and water (at least 3 parts.) Basically you just microwave the 3 together for about 30 seconds, stir until combined, and add more water if necessary to make it pourable.

So yeah... no recipe required.

Speaking of recipes, I'd love to hear your favorite waffle ones!

Peanut butter syrup. Mmm, that sounds amazing. I've always wanted a waffle maker too although with all the baking I'm doing I should probably get a mixer first...
