Brown Butter Blueberry-Bacon Waffle Recipe
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Please note that the prep time does not include making the brown butter, which takes about 20 minutes. (Here is How to Brown Butter.) And yes, you can also use non-browned butter (though the brown butter will add an amazing nutty, rich flavor). Makes 8 to 10 waffles.
  • 3 strips applewood smoked bacon
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk (I prefer whole or low-fat for this recipe, but non-fat will also work.)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1⅓ cups all-purpose flour (or gluten-free all-purpose flour -- a brand that's 1-to-1, like Bob's Red Mill)
  • 1 tablespoon baking power
  • ⅓ cup brown butter, melted (Here's How to Brown Butter)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (if frozen, thawed)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter for the waffle iron
  1. Add the bacon strips to a sauté pan and cook over medium heat until they are golden and crispy, a few minutes per side. Place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Then crumble the strips into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Preheat your waffle iron, and in a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar and salt. Whisk until smooth.
  3. Add the flour and baking powder and whisk only enough to blend and make a smooth mixture.
  4. Fold in the melted brown butter (here's How to Brown Butter).
  5. Now fold in the blueberries and crumbled bacon.
  6. Add the batter to your waffle iron, using it according to the manufacturers instructions. (If it's not a non-stick iron, use a pastry brush to add some of the unsalted butter to the iron to prevent sticking -- each time you add batter.)
  7. Let the waffles cool on a cooling rack and then serve!
