Cheddar and Bacon Waffles


I think these might be my favorite……or maybe the chocolate ones…..or the apple cider ones…..or maybe just plain… many choices.

These are a dense, flavorful waffle.  Don’t expect them to be like your normal waffles, light and airy.  With the addition of cheese and bacon, they are heavy, and kind of rich.  The batter is easy to mix up and you can use ready-bacon if you like.  I added chopped green onions as well.

We liked these waffles with syrup, but they also make a good bread substitute for an egg sandwich!
