Maple Bacon Yeast Waffles – light, crispy waffles full of maple syrup and crisp bacon. The batter sits overnight to develop the perfect texture and taste!
I have big news.
I used a whisk to make these.
I know what you’re thinking. You’re all “Huh? A whisk? Why is that a big deal?”
Because I haven’t owned a whisk since sometime in 2007. I get A) tired of cleaning certain kitchen tools or B) tired of storing certain kitchen tools. So I trash them.

So anyway, I’ve gotten along just fine for many years just using a fork to whisk whatever needed to be whisked. But when my mom came out to visit, she was all “Where’s your whisk?” and then when my aunt came out to visit, she was all “You don’t have a whisk?”
I get it guys, I’m supposed to have a whisk.
I bought TWO at Ikea last weekend. Everyone can now stop worrying about how I’m making pudding or gravy or waffle batter.
I’m obsessed with yeast waffles, we know this. There is nothing better than being able to make waffle batter at midnight, pop it in the fridge, and then just cook them off in the AM when you’re not awake enough to make anything else. Plus, these are super delicious.
