I'm not the type of person to sit down and eat a slice of bacon, but there's just something about that touch of saltiness that crumbled bacon lends to so many dishes. In this particular breakfast dish, the salty and slighlty sweet flavor of the jowl bacon balances the sweetness of the syrup. The fluffy texture of the waffle with the crunchy bacon and the velvety soft yolk of the egg is simple and easy to make, but oh so delicious!!
*Just as a note, I'd caution against substituting with a store bought waffle in this dish. The flavor is not nearly good enough to make this dish shine.*
1 fluffy and crisp waffle
2 eggs, fried easy over
1 slice of jowl bacon, cubed and fried
1. Take the freshly prepared waffle and drizzle lightly with syrup (I do my syrup with just vanilla and butter flavoring, no maple flavoring)
2. Top with easy over fried egg (don't go greasy, all you need is a nonstick pan and a spray of Pam)
3. Sprinkle with crispy fried jowl bacon
