Be pork waffles!

The new slogan is officially official…Pork Be Inspired! Well, I’m inspired and you should be too. With the versatility of pork, the yumminess of pork, and the low fat, high protein nutrition pork offers you can make anything out of this stuff. 

Check out the great video to get you inspired with some slowcookin’ pork with Cameron Bure. YUM! You can even get freebies, recipes, pork basics, nutritional facts, and a whole slew of stuff from the Pork Be Inspired website.

I know, I know, we all love The Other White Meat slogan but fret not my pork consuming friends. The Other White Meat is not gone forever. Read more about the history of pork and its heritage brand. 

In honor of such a yummy and inspiring new slogan, here is a great pork recipe that mixes sweet with meat and turns out one tasty dish that is great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner...Buttermilk Bacon Waffles:

These are yummy in your tummy good. Just imagine a bite of buttermilk waffle, sweet syrup, and bacon all in one delicious mouthful! Oh. Yeah. Mmmm.

Now, I know that most of my recipes are somewhat vague because I rely on smell, sight, and taste to cook--not so much on written recipes--but this one actually has a really, real recipe with measurements and all.

Here is a little tip: If, like me, you don't always
come to battle completely prepared, keep some
REAL fully cooked bacon bits in your freezer.
That way, even if you don't have bacon on hand, or you just don't like crumbling it, you can heat theselittle beauties up and voila! you're ready to go.

Such pretty eggs...
Eggs, Buttermilk meet Flour. Flour, this is Eggs and Buttermilk.

Mmmm... Bacon...

It goes in a liquid...

And comes out a solid...

My cat-boy will now demonstrate the final step in waffle making...Pay attention! This is the most important step.


Buttermilk Bacon Waffles

2 cups Flour
1 tbsp. Baking Powder
½ tsp. salt
3 tbsp. sugar
4 Eggs
1 cup Buttermilk
1 tbsp. Vanilla Extract
4 tbsp. Butter, melted
3-4 strips Bacon, cooked and crumbled OR
¾ cup REAL Fully Cooked Bacon Bits

In a large bowl sift together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (I like to beat my eggs separately then beat in each ingredient, one at a time but that is just me). Add wet to dry and mix until lump-free. Stir in bacon. Pour about ¾ cup into waffle maker and there you go…you’re makin’ waffles!
