Brown Butter Blueberry Bacon Waffles

Brown Butter Blueberry-Bacon Waffles

Valentina K. Wein
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.

Equipment

Ingredients
 
 

  • 3 strips bacon
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk (whole, low-fat or non-fat okay -- I used low fat)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1⅓ cups all-purpose flour (or gluten-free all-purpose flour -- a brand that's 1-to-1)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • cup brown butter (click here for How to Brown Butter), melted
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (if frozen, thaw first)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter for the waffle iron

Instructions
 

  • Cook the bacon. 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.
  • Heat waffle iron and make batter. Turn on the waffle iron.
    In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar and salt. Whisk until smooth. Add the flour and baking powder and whisk only enough to blend and make a smooth mixture. Fold in the melted brown butter, blueberries and crumbled bacon. (Here's How to Brown Butter).
  • Cook. 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.)
  • Cool. Let the waffles cool on a cooling rack and then serve!
