Weekend waffles, the MIL edition

The husband and I spent a long weekend with the in-laws and I had my mother-in-law's signature breakfast. Waffles!

For her special breakfast you need walnuts chopped up all nice (my husband was assigned the job of chopping these). 

And bacon. This was delicious but it was even better when we cooked it a little longer...I like it on the burnt side. 

The key is to crumble the bacon up and throw it IN the batter with the walnuts. 

Yeah, the first time I was served them years ago I was all...

But seriously...deliciousness! 

While I went for a standard drizzle of pure maple syrup on mine, my mother-in-law put me to shame and went all out with her toppings. In case you're wondering, that wondrous pile consists of Greek yogurt, banana, blueberries, and a drizzle of honey. I was already 3 waffles in and unable to fit another bite or I may have had to try her masterpiece. 

If you try this amazing food item or have had it before (you are much more creative than me because I would have never thought of mixing these items) I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Bacon in sweet things is something I haven't yet been able to wrap my head around. Whenever we go out for bagels, my brother-in-law gets a maple bacon doughnut, and I just stare at it blankly. :p
