How do you make Cheddar Bay Biscuit Waffles?
The combination of sweet and savory is often a tasty treat. This recipe, Cheddar Bay Biscuit Waffles with Candied Bacon and Salted Caramel is a delightful combination for brunch. Although many people have become accustomed to chicken and waffles, this version is a little simpler, but has similar flavor combinations.
Here is part of the Cheddar Bay Biscuit Waffles recipe.
Ingredients for the waffles:
- 1 ¾ cup Cold water
- ½ cup Shredded sharp cheddar
- 1 pouch CBB mix
- 1 pouch Garlic herb blend
- Pre heat waffle iron.
- Stir together water, cheddar, CBB mix, and garlic herb blend. Allow to rest for 15 minutes.
- Lightly grease the waffle iron and place about ½ cup (varies per model) mixture and cook for approximately 4 minutes.
While this recipe is relatively simple, it can be customized in a variety of ways. The most important part is the waffle recipe. Any candied bacon recipe can be used. Personally, a spicy candied bacon is a great choice. The hint of spice with the cheddar is quite tasty.
Also, you could use some pork belly if you prefer a heartier dish. If you choose to use pork belly, make sure that the flavors mimic the candied bacon.
To finish this recipe, you can drizzle with salted caramel, as seen in the original recipe. Another nice option can be a little honey or a bourbon maple syrup. It is ok to substitute a store-bought syrup instead of making one from scratch.
Also, some chopped nuts can be a nice option. Not only does it add texture, the nutty flavor contrasts all the other ingredients.
Lastly, there is a little cooking hack that can really save the day. You can buy some Cheddar Bay Biscuits, cut them in half and put them in the waffle maker. It isn’t exactly the same as the waffle recipe, but it is a tasty food hack.
