Whole Wheat Maple Bacon Waffles are the perfect weekend breakfast or brunch. Fluffy Belgian waffles, studded with crispy bits of maple smoked bacon. Every bite craves another!
This may sound a little controversial on this day after Christmas, but I have a proposal to make:
Skip the mall.
Eat whole wheat maple bacon waffles instead.
I kid! I kid!
Well, not about the mall part–I’m totally serious about that one.
Actually, I’m pretty serious about the eating waffles part, too.
Hmmm…I guess I’m not really kidding at all.
All I’m suggesting is that one more day spent enjoying the company of family and friends, instead of braving the craziness that is the Return Line at the mall, wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.
In fact, facing off with a big pile of whole wheat maple bacon waffles before playing more games with the family is good for the soul.
The day after Christmas is traditionally a day spent cocooning with the family at our house. We lounge in our pajamas all day long to unplug. We play hours of board games, possibly watching a movie or two. Decompression from the flurry of activity that leads up to Christmas is the name of the game, and we spend time just being.
I highly recommend it.
I also recommend that you serve these whole wheat bacon waffles with a soft fried egg on top.
It’s like having your toast, bacon, and egg all wrapped up in a neat-little waffle-y package.
Now that’s a tasty package that I guarantee won’t be returned at the mall.
