Adding Bacon and Cheddar to my Fluffy Sour Cream Waffles recipe was a very very good idea. I had breakfast for dinner on the brain when prepping for this week’s Facebook Live so I took my favorite waffles in a savory direction. You’re going to love these Bacon Cheddar Waffles! Calvin and I did.

Make My Waffles Crispy!
One quick tip to keep your waffles crispy on the outside is to put them on a cooling rack after you pull them off the waffle iron. They give off a lot of steam and if they’re on a plate, that steam will turn into condensation, making the under side of your waffles soggy.
The cheddar gets nice and crispy on the edges when it’s cooked in the waffle iron. It’s the perfect addition to a recipe that I already loved.
I then topped this savory waffle with a little more sour cream, more cheddar and bacon, scallions, maple syrup and a fried egg on top. This would be a show stopper for your next brunch.

- Total Time: 30 mins
- Yield: 8 waffles
- Category: Breakfast
- Cuisine: American
- 2 eggs
- ¼ c sugar
- ½ c sour cream
- ½ – ¾ cup milk
- 1tsp baking powder
- 1tsp baking soda
- 1.5 cup cake flour (makes for a fluffier waffle than AP flour)
- 4 strips bacon, fried and chopped into bacon bits
- 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Whisk egg with sugar until fluffy. Add in sour cream and whisk briefly, then add in flour, baking powder and baking soda and whisk briefly slowly pouring in the milk until incorporated, but can be lumpy. Add up to ¾ cup of milk if the batter is too thick. It should be a thicker batter, not wattery our soupy, but should definitely be sticky and pourable. Fold in the bacon and the cheddar.
- Pour batter into waffle iron and cook to desired darkness. Once the steam dissipates, the waffles are cooked.
- Serve topped with a dollop of sour cream , more bacon, cheddar, scallions, maple syrup and a fried egg.
