Thank you to Goosebery Patch for providing a copy of Game-Day Fan Fare so we could try some waffle recipes. All thoughts and words are 100% my own.
I’m kind of in love with waffles lately. Which some (my parents) might consider odd, because I didn’t care for waffles growing up. I actually didn’t love pancakes all that much, to be honest. If I had breakfast, I wanted eggs and toast, maybe some bacon. But in college on Saturday mornings they had a waffle bar and I started to dip my toe into the world of waffles. I wouldn’t say I was a groupie, but they were on my radar.
But for the last few months they’ve been on my mind more than ever. So when I saw that they made waffle plates for my Griddler, I knew it was fate. After weeks of being out of stock, I finally scored a set and have been a waffle-making machine over the last few days.
In the middle of my waffle madness my copy of the new Gooseberry Patch Game-Day Fan Fare arrived. It’s always hard for me to choose the first recipe I want to try but this time it was easy. Because Game-Day Fan Fare includes a couple of recipes for waffles. The pumpkin ones will wait until fall but the Canadian Bacon Waffles, submitted by Jan Fishback, sounded perfect.
- 2 C biscuit baking mix
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- ½ C oil
- 1 C club soda
- ½ C Canadian bacon, diced (roughly three slices)
- ½ C shredded cheddar cheese
- In a bowl, combine baking mix, eggs, and oil.
- Slowly add club soda; stir until smooth.
- Fold in Canadian bacon and cheese.
- Add batter to lightly greased waffle iron.
- Cook according to manufacturer’s instructions.
I ended up cooking my waffles about 60-90 seconds longer than my manufacturer’s suggestions. I’d just take a peek at them after the recommended time and then finish cooking based on your preferences. I personally like my waffles a little darker and crispier, so I cook mine a bit longer. Next time I’ll also use more cheese as it was a bit subtle and because, well, I feel like you can’t really ever have too much cheese.
