Cook the bacon. You can use the skillet, microwave, or the oven to cook it. I prefer cooking a whole package of bacon in the oven using a wire rack on a baking sheet.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients - the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
To the bowl, add the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, and melted and cooled butter. Mix with a large spoon. Be careful to not over-mix. Some small clumps of flour are ok. Let the batter sit for 15-20 minutes.
Prepare a waffle iron. When hot, add batter and cook until done. You should get approximately 12 waffles.
Serve by topping the waffles with an egg over easy, a few extra pieces of bacon, along with a big drizzle of maple syrup!
Storing - These can be stored in the refrigerator for several days. Simply warm them up in the microwave or use toaster to get them a little crunchyFreezing - I'm always looking for meals that are freezer friendly for a grab-and-go meal. Waffles freeze up great, and I've been doing that for years. You just place them in freezer bags, separated by parchment paper, and freeze up to three months. Grab one on your way out the door, or eat them at home with a freshly cooked egg on top.
