A New Family Favorite

This week, for homework, Logan brought home this recipe. His instructions were to 1. read the recipe and 2. answer all the questions on the back of the page. This assignment was a reading/comprehension exercise. By the time he was finished answering all the questions he was salivating and hungry. Do you see what this recipe is?! It's waffles with bacon and cheese inside! A food that is right up Logan's alley!

The next question was, "Mom, can we make this recipe this week?"

And my answer, "Sure, Logie man."

This morning, for Sunday breakfast, we decided to give it a try. I was skeptical of the Swiss cheese, but we followed the recipe to the letter and didn't use any of the options listed on the side. And to EVERYONE's surprise - they were DELICIOUS!!

We served them up just like regular waffles - syrup and/ or powdered sugar on top. They were even good plain without toppings. Jeremy liked them so much he deemed it "a new family favorite" and I'm sure we'll be serving Bacon & Swiss Waffles at our house on many occasions in the future.

Once again this theory was proved correct: Bacon makes everything better.

I agree! Bacon does make everything better! I may need to try those waffles too...

Cheese? Really? I don't know if I could get past that.

p.s I'm so using your (his) paper towel science project idea for next year. And every year after that ;)

Yum! Did you serve those with maple syrup? Once we inadvertently bought maple flavored bacon at Sam's Club and used it to make a quiche. Needless to say that did not become a family favorite!
