Bacon Waffles

My boys think everything is better with bacon or sausage. Adding chopped bacon to a basic waffle recipe stepped breakfast up a notch. The 3 strips of bacon looked like plenty in the batter but I would increase it to 6 next time because once the waffles puffed up you did not get enough bacon flavor.

Bacon Waffles
3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 eggs, separated
1 cup + 2 Tbsp. fat free half and half
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
6 Tbsp. vegetable oil

Beat the egg yolks. Combine the beaten egg yolks with the half and half, vanilla extract, flour, sugar and baking powder. Mix until just combined. Add the bacons. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the batter.
Load the waffle maker according to manufacturers directions.

Serve with maple syrup and confectioners sugar or your topping of choice.
