I know we all begin to crave our favorite warm dishes this time of year and if your are like me, the struggle to keep from gaining "winter weight" is in full swing!
My inner clock has decided it's time to fatten me up and my cravings for all my favorite, wonderful Fall comfort foods has hit an all time high! This morning my cravings got the better of me and I was forced by my "inner voice" to make Stuffed Waffles for breakfast.
Fluffy, tender waffles stuffed with bacon and eggs fried in bacon grease! YUM!! Some of you may need to turn your heads away as I indulge the rest of us with the details!!
Before I get to the recipe, I have to confess to you that it wasn't just the cravings that persuaded me to make the waffles. Yesterday, I had the good fortune of visiting one of my favorite stores, Bed Bath and Beyond, where I was lucky enough to find a KRUP'S waffle iron,....on SALE!! The last of kind on the clearance rack, 50%! Oh, how I love a great bargain not to mention, I was able to use my coveted 20% coupon to get even more of a discount.
This recipe is from the Krups booklet that came in the box. I adjusted the recipe adding Buttermilk and an additional ½ cup 2% milk, to reach my preferred consistency and taste.
2 ½ cups sifted all-purpose flour
4 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 ½ cup milk
½ cup vegetable oil
Beat egg yolks in a medium bowl on high speed until light yellow and fluffy, add the milk, butter milk and oil and blend for 1 minute on medium speed
What was left after my morning feast...my eyes are always bigger that my belly!

It would be great to include a link in this posts and all future until 31/10, link directly to your "Battlechile". It will be easier for everyone to submit and also a reminder to everyone who has not entered yet!
Your waffles look yummy. I guess beating the egg whites separately and folding it in makes a lighter and fluffier waffle. Will have to try that. I am also looking to get a new waffle iron 🙂 BTW, I wanted to let you know that I have a link to you on my latest post. Do check it out soon.
I don't usually say it this way, but: Oh my God! My husband would LOVE this heartattacking goodness! He is after all a yorkshire lad, and grew up with the bacon-egg-grease-and-joy-breakfasts, like they do in England. For me, I think I would have loved those waffles, with sourcream or quark, and some jam on top! And a cup of tea. Yum!
