Bacon Jalapeño Waffle

We LOVE waffles. Savoury or sweet. They’re perfectly crispy, fluffy and capture any sauce you pour on them with the perfect little cups. This Bacon Jalapeño Waffle with Cheesy Hollandaise is no exception.

Waffles are one of those meals that we don’t have often. When we do it’s generally a special occasion and calls for celebration. Whether its Gingerbread Waffles, Strawberry Shortcake Waffles or a Savoury Potato Waffle, there is always a time and place to have a good waffle in your life. Mother’s Day is no exception. Moms do pretty much everything for you and deserve everything you can in return. Treat mom to a delicious meal – fair warning this recipe has a kick to it. If your mom isn’t a fan of spice we’ve got a bunch of other amazing brunch and breakfast options to choose from.

 

Starting with our classic waffle recipe, we made some tweaks to make it a bit more savoury. Using our Belguim Waffle Maker, this recipe makes about four hearty waffles that will be the perfect base for your next big brunch. With the addition of vegan bacon, jalapeno and cheese, the waffle offers the perfect mix of textures and flavours. Topped with our hollandaise sauce made cheesy, this brunch is made for celebrating.
