Cheddar Chive Bacon Waffle Recipe
You will never eat regular waffles ever again once you've made these ones. I made enough to freeze for days you want a treat - just pop in the toaster!

Preheat your waffle iron.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together egg yolks, milk, and melted butter. Set aside.
In a mixer, whip egg whites until soft peaks form.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix until just combined, DO NOT OVER-MIX. Add the bacon, cheese, and scallions to the bowl along with the prepared egg whites and gently fold until combined.
Prepare waffle iron with a little bit of oil. I used my bacon fat for another depth of flavour. Cook until golden brown - for me that was about 4 to 5 minutes.
Place cut waffles on wire rack to allow additional steam to escape, ensuring crispiness. Serve immediately.
I made a double batch of this recipe and placed extra cooked waffles on a baking sheet and put them in the freezer. I then separated halves with wax paper and put in freezer bags for future yummy Sunday breakfasts. To reheat just pop in the toaster!!
