Looking for something special to make for breakfast? Have a hankering for both bacon and waffles? Tired of eating just breakfast quiche and breakfast muffins? Make Bacon Almond Waffles and have the best of both worlds! Waffles are something not easy to replicate on the keto diet but today I really wanted one. So, I took the Almond Bun recipe, dragged out the waffle maker, and got cooking!
Start with the standard almond bun recipe. One thing to note, you need to make sure that the almond bun batter is really liquid. I’ve gotten some comments that it was hard to spread the batter and I believe its all based on the temperature of the ingredients. Most people store the almond flour, eggs, and butter in the refrigerator. Take the eggs and place in a bowl with warm water before using. Mix the dry ingredients and then the eggs. Mix thoroughly. Then add the melted butter and the mixture should be liquid.
Cook some bacon until crisp. Lately I’ve been cooking bacon in my Convection Toaster Oven to cook my bacon when I’m short of time. I just lay out 4 or 5 slices on some foil and set it to 450 degrees with convection on. Then by the time I finish prepping the bacon is done.
Next, grab your trusty Waffle Iron, preheat it, and spray with Pam. I bought this waffle maker back when I still ate carbs and it was the best consumer model made. Cheaper ones don’t heat as well and tend to break quickly.
Try to do this next step as fast as possible. Pour the batter on the bottom layer of the griddle, making sure to spread the batter evenly. Then place the bacon on top of the batter. For this model waffle maker, bring the handle down and flip it over. It will beep when it is done.
