How to make it

  • Waffles: Use 2 waffle irons -- 1 regular and 1 heart-shaped.
  • Spray each waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray before heating.
  • In a large bowl, combine the biscuit mix, egg, oil, and club soda.
  • Sprinkle heavily with bacon bits and bake in waffle irons until golden brown and slightly crispy.
  • Note: The club soda doesn't permit the batter to be stored, but this recipe freezes very well. Also, you can keep one batch hot on top of the iron while preparing a second batch.
  • French Pecan-Praline Cream Topping:
  • Combine dessert topping, pecan-praline liquid mix, and powdered sugar and mix together.
  • Pan-fried Apples and Bananas:
  • Sprinkle both sides of fruit well with cinnamon.
  • Saute over medium heat.
  • Maple-Peach Syrup:
  • To every 1/2 cup of your favorite Maple syrup, add 1/2 cup of homemade or favorite peach jam or preserves. Mix well and heat in microwave until bubbly.
  • Plate Arrangement:
  • Arrange waffles like a butterfly on plate.
  • Top with hot Maple-Peach syrup. Arrange pan-fried bananas and apples at top in "head" area. Top with French-Praline Cream. Create the lower "body" part of butterfly out of heart-shaped waffles and top with fresh bananas. Dribble the strawberries over entire waffles. Using a sifter, sift powdered sugar generously over the entire plate.
  • Yield: 8 to 10 small sections of 3- to 4-inch regular or heart-shaped waffles

    I just e-mailed this "badd-boy" recipe to myself, 'cause the bacon is a super food '-) Actually, I've been meaning to make waffles some Sunday morn, so this will be perfect ! Can I use fresh bacon instead ?


    P.S. Gave you a Five for the topping and the whole concept of overdosing on flavor !!!
