Preparation

Waffles 

  1. Preheat waffle maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Preheat oven to 200° F and set a wire rack insert into a sheet pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, sugar, bacon and Castello® Crumbed Blue Cheese. Whisk until incorporated. Set aside.
  3. In a separate medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together egg yolks, buttermilk, melted butter and bacon drippings. Set aside.
  4. In another separate bowl, whip egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix gently, until just combined, being sure not to over-mix ingredients. Gently fold in whipped egg whites.
  6. Spray preheated waffle maker with nonstick cooking spray. Add batter, about 3/4 cup per waffle, to maker. Cook according to manufacturer’s instructions, until fully cooked and cheese is a slightly oozing (5-7 minutes). Transfer cooked waffles to wire rack and place in oven to keep warm. Continue cooking the remaining waffle batter.

  4. Transfer to a serving platter and drizzle with blue cheese dressing (optional) and top with remaining half of waffle squares.
