Maple Bacon Yeast Waffles

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.

Speaking of waffles, I made some. My friend Nicole is doing a waffle recipe every week this year and I’ve been so inspired by her. I made my Coconut Flour Waffles last week but this week I was in the mood for something different.

Maple Bacon Yeast Waffles! 

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.
