Brown Sugar Bacon Stuffed Waffles

Author: Mrs Happy Homemaker


  • For the waffles:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cups vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups buttermilk

  • For the bacon:
  • 10 slices of bacon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Line baking sheet with foil & spray with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange bacon in a single layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle generously with brown sugar. Place in the upper thrid of the oven & bake until sugar is caramelized & bacon is brown & crispy, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven. Immediately remove bacon slices using a pair of tongs. Work quickly or they will stick. Place them on a cutting board (not paper towels – they will stick!) to cool.
  • Set up your waffle iron on a level surface & turn on to preheat.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, & brown sugar. Whisk to blend.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, buttermilk, & vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients & fold. Stir gently until combined. Try not to overmix the batter or the waffles will become tough.
  • Pour your batter into the waffle maker. Set a few slices of bacon in the batter – either all the way in or halfway out (whichever your preference). Cook the waffles per your waffle maker’s instructions.
  • Serve with butter & syrup.
