It’s Secret Recipe Club time!! This month’s reveal crept up on me. As you’ve probably noticed, things have been a little quiet around the blog. I had several big work projects all happening at once and with Madeline having lacrosse practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays, our meals have been really quick. I was happy to have some time to take some time to check out my SRC assignment, Dessert Before Dinner and pick out a great recipe. How fun of a blog name is that?! Stephanie started her blog to keep track of her recipes
(sounds familiar) and enjoys making sweet and savory recipes. She’s got a super cute cat too! 🙂
After checking out Stephanie’s recipe index, I had narrowed it down to Bacon Cheddar Cornmeal Waffles, Ricotta-Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts and Cheddar Rosemary Walnut Crackers, but as you can see the hubby vetoed my other two choices and I went with waffles. It was our breakfast yesterday morning
(yes, I waited until Sunday before our reveal to make my recipe) and it was the perfect way to start the day! The bacon and cheddar in the waffle was the perfect combination and I loved the texture the cornmeal brought. I also liked that they were light and fluffy, not too dense like some other waffles I have made in the past.
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
2 eggs, separated
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
3 strips crispy bacon, chopped
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine the egg yolks, melted butter and buttermilk. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry mixture and then fold in the bacon and cheddar cheese. Set the batter aside.
Preheat your waffle iron according to the instructions. Take the remaining egg whites and whip them until stiff peaks form. Gently fold them into the waffle batter. Cook the waffles until they are golden brown. I served them with a drizzle of maple syrup. YUM!!

Bacon in waffles! Oh, the kids would love these! 🙂
My daughter devoured the last one for breakfast this morning!
Sounds super interesting… always thought waffles were supposed to be sweet… the savory one is lovely, especially with the bacon…
Glad you liked this recipe. I do like that this waffle is not dense like so many waffle recipes can be. Thanks for the kind words in your SRC post!
You’re welcome Stephanie! I’m looking forward to making these again.
I’ve made cornmeal waffles in the past and really liked them. I LOVE that you added bacon and cheddar to them! My family will be so surprised when I make these soon.
Thanks! I’m sure they’ll love you for a surprise like these!

I adore corn cakes, and with the addition of bacon, you know I’m definitely going to be making these soon … maybe for dinner tonight? ha ha!
