Hi, fellow Nommers! Sitting in my hotel room this week, I came to a sudden and accelerating panicked realization. OH NO! I DIDN’T MAKE A POST AHEAD OF TIME FOR
NOMDAY MONDAY! HOW AM I GOING TO MAKE SOMETHING WITHOUT A KITCHEN?
In a state of panic, my wonderful boyfriend came to the rescue with a guest post! Well sort of, unable to allow a recipe that involved boxed ingredients, I ended up coming home for the weekend – so it’s a collaborative post! He came up with the great idea of a whiskey cinnamon whipped cream on a savory bacon waffle and I experimented a bit with the Fluffy Pancake Recipe to try to make something that would hold the shape of a waffle and keep the same buttery flavors. And with that, our sweet strawberry and savory bacon whiskey waffles were born!
- Pour your milk and white vinegar into a small bowl, mix lightly and let sit for 5-10 minutes. This allows the milk to sour, you can substitute this with buttermilk if you have it on hand, but as most people don’t, milk and vinegar do just fine.
- Add the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and baking soda together into a large mixing bowl.
- Whisk the egg and melted butter into the soured milk.
- Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and whisk until you don’t have any lumps.
- Spray waffle iron with Pam and pour evenly into iron on a medium to hot setting. Make half of the mix on it’s own, add the bacon to the second batch to make your savory waffles.
- Refrigerate heavy cream ahead of time and add directly to mixer when ready to make whipped cream.
- Add the bourbon, cinnamon and maple syrup and whip until you lift your whisk and create a 1 inch peak.
- Place in the fridge until ready to eat. Leaving it out will allow your cream to melt at room temperature. Your whipped cream will start to melt when placed on a hot waffle so keep cool until ready.
- Slice up strawberries vertically or any other fruit you’d like to place on your sweet waffles.
- Sift powdered sugar over one waffle, dollop on the whipped cream and placed your strawberries on top.
- Add the whipped cream to the bacon waffles and sprinkle with remaining bacon bits.
