It’s Sunday morning and I’m making waffles. If your house is like mine, everyone wants a different kind of waffle. Plain, blueberry, pecan…this easy adaptable recipe will make everyone happy – especially the cook.

Makes 12 waffles. Equipment needed: a waffle iron.

1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tbs. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/8 tsp. nutmeg

2 eggs

1 and 3/4 cups milk

1/2 cup cooking oil (walnut or canola)

bacon cooked and crumbled

chopped pecans

Heat the waffle iron. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl combine the eggs, oil and milk. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry to make a batter.

Pour batter onto waffle iron (I use a ladle to make things easy). Top the waffle batter with crumbled bacon and pecans. Close lid and cook until toasty brown. (My waffle iron has a light that goes out when they are cooked.)

Serve with a pad of butter and maple syrup.

Plays well with others: These freeze really well. Just pull out the frozen waffle and pop it in a toaster. This  is the only way my family gets waffles on a weekday!

Top the waffle batter with anything you want – blueberries, strawberries (try strawberries and chopped almonds), nuts, bananas, etc.

For a fun dessert heat two waffles and serve with ice cream in between like a sandwich. I’ll confess, this is sometimes breakfast too at our house!
