"Great for brunch. A nice alternative to sweet waffles, these cornmeal waffles are ironed with a slice of bacon, and served with a creamy cheese sauce."

  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the eggs, milk and oil. In a larger bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar and salt. Make a well in the center, and pour in the milk mixture. Stir until well blended.
  3. Pour 1/4 cup batter onto the heated waffle iron. Amount may be different for different irons. Place a strip of raw bacon over the batter across each section of the waffle iron. Close the lid, and cook until steam is no longer coming out, and the waffle is golden brown.
  4. For the cheese sauce, melt processed cheese in a bowl in the microwave. Gradually stir in milk until you reach your desired thickness. Drizzle cheese sauce over waffles before serving.

Pretty good, but the cornmeal gives it a different texture. Liked the bacon pieces with in the waffle and precooked it in the microwave to give it a crunch. Did not add the cheese sauce but my ...

This is my recipe - I just wanted to add that if you like your bacon real crispy then cook it for just long enough to start melting the fat off. Then it will become crispier in the waffle iron. ...

These are really good. I was surprised at how light and wonderfully textured the waffles turned out to be. I do suggest like others microwaving the bacon just enough to melt the fat off and make...

The recipe was easy to make and the waffles were nice and fluffy. I choose to add crumbled bacon to the recipe which gave it a nice flavor. The cheese sauce did not go over and we ended up using...

I really liked this recipe, but did things different. I seperated the eggs, and whipped the egg whites. That is the secret to any waffle recipe! Then, instead of bacon, I sprinkled the top of th...

A nice change. I stripped the excessive fat from my bacon before putting it in the waffles. Next time I think I'll chop up some ham and mix it into the batter instead of using bacon. I don't ...

These made a nice change from regular waffles. If I were to make them again, I would probably dice the bacon - left whole, it didn't cook very evenly. The cheese sauce actually turned out better...

I mixed these up as directed, aaannd...the waffle iron would not heat up. Yes, the same waffle iron my DH's Grandpa used to cook waffles for him on finally gave out, so I had to improvise a bit...

These waffles are the truest sense of the word comfort food. Something special Grandma down on the farm would serve for a Sunday morning breakfast.
