Lamb Bacon and Cheddar Waffles [RECIPE]

Last weekend, I went to Brooklyn Kitchen to get a new french press.  After perusing the Meat Hook selection, I fell in love with the concept of lamb bacon, so I bought a 1/4 lb for fun.  Fast forward to Sunday morning, I woke up, looked in my fridge, and decided I wanted to try something new.  As someone who loves mixing sweet and savory (particularly with waffles), I felt this was an excellent choice for brunch.

The recipe is as follows (yields 2 waffles):

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons sweetener (I used maple syrup)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 lb of shredded EXTRA sharp cheddar
  • 2 slices of lamb bacon (or any bacon for that matter)

NOTE:  I omitted oil from waffle recipe because bacon and cheese have enough combined fat.


  1. Mix dry ingredients
  2. Add milk and separate yolk
  3. Beat egg white separately
  4. Fold in egg whites delicately to fluff the dough
  5. Cook bacon until crispy, finely chop, and add to dough
  6. Shred cheese in medium side of grater and mix into dough
  7. Add to waffle maker.  Color should be light brown with crispy texture (see below)
  8. ENJOY with additional maple syrup if you’d like
