So… I saw these macaroni & cheese waffles on Pinterest a while ago and fell in love with the very idea.

After savoring the thought for months, I decided to pull the trigger and make the waffles happen.  It was a success.

The process is detailed here but I tried slightly different ingredients.

  • 1/2 lb of macaroni (cooked al dente)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (about 10 ounces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon mustard power
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 6 ounces bacon, cooked until crisp, crumbled, plus 1 tablespoon
  • reserved bacon fat
  • 12 ounces freshly grated cheddar (mild and sharp) cheese
  • 3 scallions
  • Cracked pepper (to taste)

Lessons learned: The waffles were excellent but after this time around, I would add a little more salt, not include the macaroni. It was a fun additive but unnecessary and just plain over the top. And of course, I’d add more bacon.

I also made a Sriracha & sour cream sauce to compliment the waffles and that was a win as well!

On a related note, I think I wanted to try a salmon, blue cheese and chive waffle next and serve it with a caper & orange whipped cream. The possibilities seems endless…
