One of our favorite themed dinner nights is breakfast for dinner. When I first started this tradition in our home it was because I needed something quick and easy to make, but the boys love it so much that we’ve made it a regular thing we do at least a few times a month. Some days we make egg dishes, sometimes pancakes or crepes, and sometimes it’s waffles.
In honor of February being National Hot Breakfast Month I thought I’d share a new recipe we tried recently- maple bacon stuffed waffles. I was thinking about different waffle add-ins or toppings and I thought it would be fun to put my favorite breakfast side dish into the main dish. I was originally just going to crumble up bacon and make a savory waffle but I thought adding the syrup right into the waffle mix before it cooked would make it sweet as well (and to be honest, I love dipping my bacon in syrup so that is a winning combo in my mind!)
This recipe is so simple that it doesn’t even require step-by-step photos. Just make the waffle mix (we used our favorite Krusteaz Belgian Waffle Mix) according to the package while your waffle maker preheats. Once the waffle maker is ready, spray it with PAM cooking spray, and add half the waffle mix you’d normally add for one waffle. Next, sprinkle cooked bacon pieces and drizzle some syrup on top before adding the rest of the waffle mix into the waffle maker and closing it. Once fully cooked you can top with even more syrup and bacon before serving. The sweet syrup pairs perfectly with the salty crunch of the bacon inside the waffle.
We also make apple pie waffles by adding in apple pie filling instead of bacon and syrup. It’s fun to try out different combinations of fillings and toppings! What kind of waffle would you make? Or do you prefer pancakes like my youngest? Whichever you enjoy, Krusteaz makes breakfast for dinner easy with their delicious brand of convenient, high quality baking mixes!

Holy breakfast food, Batman! I have to make these! You combined everything amazing about breakfast into one ultimate breakfast food!
We do breakfast for dinner quite a bit too! I’m definitely a fan of Krusteaz waffles and it’s always fun to experiment with them.
You had me at maple. And bacon. Oh heck, you had me with the whole thing. My entire family would love this. We’d have it for weekend brunch and brinner often!
I need to do this because I am running out of dinners for dinner. Those waffles are a great idea and all the different flavors work for me.
Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering! Maple and bacon are two of my favorite flavors and these look awesome!
You had me at bacon….wow, these look amazing. I could go for some right now and maybe more in the morning for breakfast. XD

I must admit that being from the UK I thought that bacon on pancakes and waffles was gross. But after trying it I love it
As a Canadian, I approve of everything being mapled ;)
