Waffles + Maple Syrup + Bacon = Yum


Date: Approximately 2 weeks ago.


Time: Morning.


Scene: In the kitchen at my parent’s home. Dad is making coffee. I’m trying to gather ingredients to make waffles.


One More Reason to Love My Dad:


Me: "We don’t have buttermilk or enough eggs to make Alton Brown’s waffles."


Dad: "Just make Dorie’s waffles. I’ll put some bacon on."


Priceless.

LOL - sounds like my Dad :) The best times in our house is over coffee in the morning. It's when everyone is at their most basic - essentially they are themselves. It's wonderful.

I like the combination of a meat with something sweet. This sounds like a great idea!

Priceless! I think you, your Dad and I will get along fine (as long as I get that last strip of bacon!)

I have yet to teach my husband the joy that is bacon in maple syrup. This is my all time favorite breakfast.

The whole family loves Dorie, that is just great, my friend. :)

Oh for the love of food! said...

These waffles look scrumptious - I like how thick they are, but I have yet to taste bacon with maple syrup - I think i will like it though, I've always loved sweet and savoury combinations ;o)

That's great!!

Lydia said...

Perfect! I'd love to have your dad in my kitchen some Sunday morning.

Bacon and maple syrup? How can you go wrong... I means, that IS love! The waffle... you have to have something to get the syrup to your mouth on... so tacky to eat it with a spoon!

Dana said...

Omg, YUM!!!! I'm drooling all over my keyboard. Michael Ruhlman recently mentioned a dish he had recently, which was hot waffles covered in maple ice cream with caramelized bacon on top. This reminds me of that! SO GOOD!

Kevin said...

You can't go wrong with bacon and syrup! Those waffles look really good!

Who wouldn't love a dad who knows about Dorie's waffles? Great post, Brilynn!

Best breakfast ever!!!!!!

Katy said...

that is quite a breakfast combo! yum.

Suzana said...

Sounds like something I would try but definitely not for breakfast, maybe a late weekend brunch. Dad's are the best!

Cheryl said...

The bacon is back!!! Yeah. Oh you two must have so much fun together.

I could totally have breakfast with you. I love this since it was what we do too. Can't go without the bacon! I've only posted about 15 or 16 posts on my new foodie blog and 2 involve bacon! I see a trend at our house.

Too cute. Bacon on waffles, that's totally new to me.
