Preparation -- 10 minutes

Heat the waffle iron and cook the bacon slices until they're crispy and transfer them to the cutting board. If you're using regular milk, you can add a tablespoon of vinegar to the milk.

Then also add the egg, vanilla extract, sunflower oil and caster sugar. Stir with a whisk to create a smooth mixture. Combine flour with baking powder if you're not using self-rising flour.

Gradually add the flour to the milk mixture and stir until the batter is smooth.

Finishing the crispy bacon waffles -- 10 minutes

Chop the crispy bacon into quite small pieces and add about 3/4th to the batter. Add about 2 large spoonfuls of batter to the waffle iron and bake until the waffle is beautiful golden brown.  

Repeat until all the batter has been used and serve with the remaining bacon bits. You can also add some maple syrup on top if you'd rather have a sweet than savoury waffle. Enjoy!
