BLT Waffle-Wich

This lunch combines two of kids' loves: waffles and bacon for one surprising BLT sandwich.


  • 3/4 all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 tbsp baking powder

  • 3/4 tsp granulated sugar

  • 1/8 tsp salt

  • 1 egg

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1 1/2 cups milk

  • 1/3 cup butter, melted

  • 8 slices bacon, cut in half crosswise

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

  • 4 romaine lettuce leaf

  • 2 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced


  • Preheat a square waffle iron.

  • Whisk flours with baking powder, sugar and salt in a medium bowl.

  • Whisk egg and yolk with milk in a large bowl. Add flour mixture to egg mixture while stirring, until almost combined.

  • Stir in butter until smooth. Be careful not to overmix. Ladle mixture into waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer’s directions. You should have 8 waffles.

  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium. Arrange bacon slices in pan. Cook, flipping halfway through, until crisp, 8 to 10 min. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Assemble waffle-wich by brushing mayo on 4 waffles, then layering with bacon, lettuce and tomato. Sandwich with remaining waffles.
