Bacon and Cinnamon Waffles

This was one of the occasions when reading the Sunday morning paper and watching FoodTV on brought about a great idea for breakfast: waffles with the unusual combination of bacon and cinnamon. In the originial recipe, Giada Di Laurentiis uses pancetta, but this is a skinny version of the waffle that leaves you little to wish for with regard to taste, texture and a perfect Sunday morning breakfast.

1/4 cp Big trail buttermilk pancake mix (or other pancake mix)
1/2 TB brown splenda
1/2 ts ground cinnamon
1 TB walnuts, chopped
1 ts bacon bits
3.5 TB ff buttermilk (or 1/3 cup for the NS pancake mix)
1 TB eggbeaters

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl; the batter should be on the liquid, pourable side. Pour batter in the middle of pre-heated waffle iron, and bake for 3-5 min. For extra special waffle, roast the walnuts first. Serve with sf maple syrup!

  1. Surely you need to have more than 3.5 TB of ff buttermilk? I tried this and it was like a thick paste, had to add more liquid. Your recipe for savory waffles calls for 1/3 cup of ff buttermilk - please advise, thanks - Shirley
