BLTs are nothing new. But pair up that classic BLT with a waffle and add a little twist with some maple syrup and you’ve got an easy game day treat!
I love the flavor of Krusteaz Belgian Waffle Mix. Not only is it easy to prep, but the flavor and texture is perfect for the BLT flavor profile. Sweet and savory gets me every time!
Here’s a little trick for recipes that have a lot of moving parts: set the oven to about 175-200 ͦ (however low your oven will go) and keep everything stored in the oven after it’s cooked to keep it warm.
You get the saltiness and crunch from the bacon, a little bit from the tomatoes, and that crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside Krusteaz Belgian Waffle that really brings it home.
Try this recipe too: Egg and Bacon Crepe Pockets
And you’re going to want to serve up a few ramekins of maple syrup, because it makes the perfect dipping companion for these BLT waffle bites!
PRO TIP: If you want to make this a full main dish, make a full waffle, cut it in half and double the BLT ingredients for a BLT waffle sandwich. I wouldn’t be mad if this became my dinner tonight either!
Be sure to check out the Krusteaz website, too, if you need more game day inspiration!
