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!

  1. 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. 
  2. Add the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and baking soda together into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Whisk the egg and melted butter into the soured milk.
  4. Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and whisk until you don’t have any lumps.
  5. 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.

  6. Refrigerate heavy cream ahead of time and add directly to mixer when ready to make whipped cream.
  7. Add the bourbon, cinnamon and maple syrup and whip until you lift your whisk and create a 1 inch peak.
  8. 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.
  9. Slice up strawberries vertically or any other fruit you’d like to place on your sweet waffles.
  10. Sift powdered sugar over one waffle, dollop on the whipped cream and placed your strawberries on top.
  11. Add the whipped cream to the bacon waffles and sprinkle with remaining bacon bits.
