Maple Bacon Waffles

This is going to be deliciously sinful!  I’m kicking up the waffles with real maple syrup.  And as if that wasn’t enough, I’m going to add the bacon right into the batter.  Who doesn’t love bacon with their waffles.  I especially like when they syrup and bacon mix together.  So I thought why not just add it right into the more »
