  • Bake the bacon for 15-20 minutes at 400º Fahrenheit . Set aside. Once cool, crumble bacon.
  • Melt butter and set aside.
  • Whisk buttermilk, eggs, maple syrup, and lightly cooled melted butter in a large bowl until well combined.
  • Add cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and baking soda and beat until just combined. Don’t overmix. Fold in the crumbled bacon. If desired reserve some bacon bits for garnish.
  • Ladle the batter into a hot, greased waffle maker and bake until crisp. About 5 minutes.*
  • Transfer cornmeal waffles onto a plate, serve with the remaining bacon bits, and drizzle with maple syrup.


* Some waffle makers have a "buttermilk waffle" setting. It's perfect for this recipe
