Chocolate Bacon Waffles

Crispy waffles made with Bisquick™ – and filled with crispy bacon and chocolate.

Ingredients

WAFFLE BATTER

2
cups Bisquick™ Original baking mix
1 1/3
cups milk
1
large egg
2
tablespoons vegetable oil

FILLINGS

8
ounces bacon, crispy
1
cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Syrup, for serving

Directions

  • 1 Add bacon strips to a skillet and cook over medium heat until crispy. You want the strips very crispy, as they won't cook further in the waffle. Cook for about 15 minutes.
  • 2 Remove bacon onto a few paper towels to let drain.
  • 3 Stir together batter ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • 4 Heat your waffle iron and add a thin layer of batter to the iron. The exact amount will vary depending on your iron model. I add about 1/3 cup of batter in my large iron.
  • 5 Top the batter with big strips of bacon and chocolate chips.
  • 6 Add another layer of batter on top of the filling. It's okay if the batter overflows a bit.
  • 7 Close the iron and cook as directed by the iron instructions.
  • 8 Remove waffle and serve immediately with syrup and topped with extra chocolate chips!

Chocolate Bacon Waffles

As prepared by Macheesmo,

There are some flavors in the cooking world that are just made to be together forever.


Strawberries and cream. Peanut butter and jelly. Bacon and chocolate.

Yep. That’s right. I said bacon and chocolate. Maybe not as common as some of the others, but the two things work awesomely together. You would be remiss to not try a little chocolate on your bacon.

Ingredients for Chocolate Bacon Waffles

I’m a big fan of homemade waffles, but for this version I used Bisquick to get the job done faster.

 

The key to stuffing a waffle with bacon is to make sure the bacon is cooked very crispy before adding it to the waffle. Obviously the bacon will not cook once it’s inside, so you want it to be nice and crispy before starting the waffle.

 

Bacon cooked

I cooked a few strips in a large skillet over medium heat for about 15 minutes and they got nice and crispy.

 

Drain the bacon on a few paper towels before stuffing it in the waffle so it isn’t super-greasy.

 

Batter mixed

Meanwhile, stir together your batter ingredients. I just used the waffle recipe on the box, which is pretty straightforward.

 

Batter and filling

Depending on your waffle iron, your method might vary a bit from here. I have a large Belgian waffle machine that I used for mine. I like to add a thin layer of batter down and then toss on whole strips of bacon and lots of chocolate chips.

 

Waffle topped

Then pour on some extra batter and you’re good to go. I filled mine a bit too high on this version. It’s okay if you do this; you’ll just have to clean up the batter that spills out of the machine as it cooks!

 

Waffle cooked

Again, depending on your waffle machine your cooking time will vary. Mine needed about five minutes to be really golden brown and delicious.

 

I cut my waffle into quarters and then served it with lots of syrup.

 

Bite of Chocolate Bacon Waffle

The waffle is a little crispy, and then you bite into the large pieces of bacon and sweet chocolate. It’s really delicious, and considering how fancy the waffle ends up, it’s actually not that much work.

 

Give this a shot if you’re a waffle (or bacon or chocolate) fanatic!
