One bite and you’ll understand why BACON PARMESAN WAFFLES are the meal you’ve been waiting for!

You’d think our first post about making waffles would be a classic version finished with a melting knob of butter and drizzle of pure Canadian maple syrup. Instead, Carol and I opted for a more interesting approach. We think these BACON PARMESAN WAFFLES are perfect for lunch, brunch or even a weeknight dinner.

You’re going to be so pleasantly surprised with this unexpected twist, I suggest you PIN this recipe to one of your PINTEREST boards. We know that after just one bite, you’ll be excited to make them again and again.

This recipe for BACON PARMESAN WAFFLES offers up some serious flavour thanks to the following:

Ingredients for Bacon Parmesan Waffles

WAFFLE MAKER

A waffle maker is one of those small kitchen appliances that all too often end up relegated to the back of our kitchen cupboards. This recipe will help increase its usability. Don’t think of waffles just on weekends.

We tested this recipe using a CUISINART waffle maker. Look further down in the post for links to purchase. We’re confident that any waffle maker will work. Simply follow the directions that come with yours to achieve stellar results.

WAFFLE BATTER

The base for the batter is made using the traditional mix of wet and dry ingredients. We used unbleached all-purpose flour, whole milk and extra-large eggs at room temperature. Don’t be alarmed by the thickness of the batter – the finished waffles are surprisingly light.

Crispy Bacon

SAVOURY ENHANCEMENTS

The addition of some chopped crispy bacon and grated Parmesan cheese are so delicious in this recipe. Then, we added sun-dried tomatoes, basil and an assortment of spices to make these waffles extra memorable. Feel free to adjust the seasoning to taste. If anything, this recipe welcomes more than the listed quantities.

COOK TIME

Although I’m providing you with a cook time of 3 minutes and 45 seconds, you may need to adjust this based on your waffle irons settings. The goal is crispy, golden brown waffles with soft centres. If you’re unsure of doneness, carefully lift the lid between the 2.5 – 3-minute mark and use the colour of the waffles as your guide.

As an aside; don’t be surprised by the heady aroma that comes off the waffles as they cook. It will make your mouth water!

GARNISH

As I explain in the video attached to this story, hold back a bit of the bacon and Parmesan. They make an ideal garnish for your waffles, sprinkling the tops right before you serve.

SERVICE

When you go to serve, I suggest partnering our savoury waffles with one of our delicious, freshly made salads. Try this SIMPLE SALAD, our EASY GREEN SALAD or our really popular FALL HARVEST SALAD.

The photos attached to this story show the prepared waffles with the salad served on the side. Another option is to lay the whole waffle uncut on the centre of your dinner plate and add your chosen salad on top. Yet another option is to make our HOLLANDAISE SAUCE and serve that on the side, too! Anyway you serve them, these waffles are fabulous.

Make them for your next brunch, lunch or dinner get-together and savour the flavours of our SAVOURY WAFFLES WITH BACON AND PARMESAN.
