Candied Bacon Waffles

Recipe Adapted from Penny Candy Studious
I love the bacon!! I could eat candied bacon all day.

4 cups Bisquick
2 2/3 Milk
2 eggs
2 tablespoon oil
2 tablespoon of the cooled bacon grease
9 slices of bacon
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 325. Line a jelly roll pan with aluminum foil. I usually cut the bacon in half, just seems easier to me. Put brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl, then put a slice of bacon - one at a time, make sure bacon is completely coated. After coating the bacon line the Pan with the bacon. Bake for 30-40 minutes, checking frequently. I flipped the bacon over because it wasn't crunchy enough on both sides.
Follow the direction on the Bisquick box. The only change I made was I replaced 2 of the tablespoon of oil with the bacon grease. Let the bacon cool before gently folding it into the waffle batter.
I sprayed the waffled iron with Pam once and use my 1/3 measuring cup to pour the batter.

*** Because I knew I would have extra batter for tomorrow. I decided not to fold the bacon in the batter instead I crumbled 1 piece of bacon on top of each waffle, after pouring it in the waffle iron. I did this because I didn't know how the bacon would hold up in the batter the next day. I will make the bacon fresh tomorrow.
Serve with warm maple syrup and sprinkle with powdered sugar


Stuffed Bell Peppers

Southwestern Stuffed Bell Peppers

I tasted the meat mixture before baking it and I really thought I wouldn't like it. I almost threw the recipe away, thinking I wouldn't need it in the future. Well, I decided to wait until I tasted the peppers and I am glad I did. This recipe earned its way into my Go To favorites.
My whole family was in agreement and this will be a staple in our household. I would suggest this recipe to anyone that likes stuffed peppers and Mexican food. And please let me know what you think.

A little information about Simply Love Food. She is a devoted Vegan and has so many great recipes. She shares a lot information with her readers and has inspired me to start cooking with turkey. So, the next time I make this recipe I will use turkey, can't wait.

  • 1/2 lb lean ground turkey breast I used 1 lb hamburger
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 1 heaping tbsp of homemade taco seasoning (or you can use the packaged type if you like)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups of cooked rice (any type you like)
  • 3-4 bell peppers, halved and seeds removed
  • 1 can of black beans, drained & rinsed I didn't have any.
  • ½ cup of frozen corn
  • 1 (15 -16 ounce) jar of salsa ( I used a chipotle salsa)
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Garnish with these toppings:fresh cilantro, sour cream,sliced avocado
    Step 1. Cook 2 cups of rice
    Step 2. Cut the peppers in half and seed them.
    Step 3. Boil the peppers for about 15 to 20 minutes, if you like them soft.
    Step 4. In a frying pan saute the hamburger, add the taco seasoning,onion, and 1 teaspoon salt.

    Step 5. Add the 16 oz jar of salsa or 2 cups homemade.
    Step 6. Add 1/2 Cup frozen corn I used Trader Joe's frozen grilled corn

    Spoon the hamburger mixture into each half of the bell peppers and place back into the baking dish. Cook the peppers for another 15-20 minutes or until the peppers are cooked all the way. Before removing from the oven sprinkle the tops of each pepper with shredded cheddar cheese. Place back into the oven until the cheese has melted.
    Remove from the oven and top with fresh cilantro, avocado slices and/or sour cream just before serving.

    I hope you try this recipe soon and let me know what you think,
