Another recipe stolen from a great restaurant in Fort Worth, Brewed. Great weekend brunch!
If you don’t have a waffle maker, buy one. They are as cheap as $10 at Target or Walmart.
Also you will need a torch. Also not expensive but you can only find them online or at a kitchen store like Sur La Table or William Sonoma.
2 cups waffle mix, prepare according to package directions
1 pound bacon, fried crisp and chopped into small pieces
1 jar Nutella
whip cream in a spray can
waffle maker and a torch
Mix the bacon into the waffle batter. Make waffles using your waffle iron. Pour a little syrup on each plate, top with a 1/2 waffle, spread about 1 TBSP of Nutella over top, top with Whipped Cream.
To caramelize the bananas. It only takes a second so don’t be intimidated. It does require a little practice though, so buy a few extra bananas the first time you try it.
Cut banana in half then cut each half lengthwise. Sprinkle a thin layer of sugar over each. I put mine on my griddle pan because I about set the house on fire when I put it on a paper plate and tried to torch it!
Using the torch, about 2 inches away, torch until golden brown. Keep the heat on it until it is bubbly. Will be a little crunchier. Garnish your plate with 2 pieces of banana.
Makes 6 waffles which will serve 12 people. Pretty rich and filling.
