Nutella & Bacon Waffles

Bacon?, Yes! Siempre (always).....Nutella?....ummm not so much!......  Not really sure why?

Every since I can remember I've had a very strong aversion for Nutella. I guess I've just contributed it to my label as a very picky eater, who is super cautious about trying new things.

 It could also be that I have as strong allegiance to peanut butter, eating the creamy whipped version of another nut just never felt right.

After all peanut butter has been a good friend to my jam, el mejor amigo (the best friend )to my choco-la-tey  and it's never let me down!

That is until the day that mis dos chicas aventureras ( my two adventurous girls) arrived from school refusing their standard  pb &j



insisting that I slather Nutella on their afternoon sandwich.



Finally I was cara a cara (face to face) with the" something new" I had happily avoided for so long. And once I finally gave it a try....Que sorpresa! 


It was surprisingly pretty good!  ...........And just as I was just coming to terms with eating Nutella from my fingers, las chicas chimed in again with what they said was a " super delicious breakfast idea".


Grinning from the breakfast table they said....How about Nutella & Bacon Waffles?!......


I paused for a minute smiled at them and said "sounds good to me!"


Vamos a la cocina!

Ingredients

1 teaspoon salt                                                                            
4 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 cups warm milk                                 
1/3 cup butter, melted

      1.In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar; set aside.  Also at this time you can combine your churro topping and set it aside. Preheat waffle iron
        

       2.In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, butter and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture; 

       3.  Place 5 tablespoons of Nutella in a shallow microwable dish and heat until slightly pourable, just enough so that it will ease out the dish but not total liquid.
 
     4. Next generously spray your waffle iron with a non- stick cooking spray. Than ladle the batter into a preheated waffle iron. Allow the waffles to firm up in the iron for about 30 seconds with iron lid open, sprinkle on maple bacon crumbles, than swirl on melted Nutella. After approx. 30 seconds close lid and cook the waffles until golden and crisp (be careful not to let the Nutella burn).

      5. Optional :Once waffle is cooked and still warm slather on more Nutella from the jar.

Now it's time to enjoy la fruta (fruit) of your labor!
