bacon waffles with BACON!

i saw a post with pancakes over bacon and thought it might work better with waffles for our family.

 bacon in germany is thin . . .like i can see you through it thin.   take what you can get i guess.   i f5ried the bacon a little to make sure it was done.   then i poured the waffle mix on and places a couple of strips of bacon on top.   easy.   and my waffle iron tends to stick on top so i put the bacon on toip.   one time i put the bacon on first and ended up with my waffle on the lid when i lifted it.   aside from being amusing, not the desired result.   they all turned out great.
i think you could fry, chop and put the bacon in the batter, but really, why go to all that work.   let's face it . . the longer the bacon remains free, the more chance it has of being eaten prematurely.

in case you need a waffle or pancake recipe - i stole this from another site but can't find it right now

if you don't have buttermilk on hand, (like me) - pour 1 1/4 cup milk in a separate cup and add 1 TB vinegar or lemon juice.   let that sit while you mix up the rest.   this is your buttermilk.

1 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
1/4 cup sugar

your buttermilk should be showing signs of separation now so add
an egg and beat them together.

add 2 TB melted butter

mix it all together and pour it over apples for apple pancakes or bacon or bananas, whatever
