Pear & Bacon Waffles

If back to school means back to busy mornings at your house, don't let the hectic rush force you to sacrifice breakfast. Fast and simple, this recipe yields a healthy and delicious way to start your morning.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Cut the waffles in half crosswise. Lay 6 halves in the bottom of an 8x8-inch baking dish, arranging them so they lay flat. Sprinkle with half the pears and half the bacon. Cover with the
remaining 6 waffle halves and sprinkle with the remaining pears and bacon.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, maple
syrup, vanilla, salt and nutmeg. Pour over the waffles. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and press all over the surface with your fingers to submerge the waffles in the liquid. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and as long as overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle it over the waffles. Bake in the middle of the oven, 50-55 minutes, until lightly puffed and firm. Let sit 5 minutes before cutting into squares.

Serves 6 Serve warm, with maple syrup if desired.
