Bacon Wednesday: Bacon waffles

When one does not take regular meal breaks because one is so busy and doesn’t have time, it becomes imperative to have certain labor-saving devices at one’s disposal to make sure the staff is well fed. We have an electric skillet for frying up our bacon. We have a blender that is yet to be used but it is destined for a bacon milkshake of some sort. And we have a waffle iron at CRC world headquarters. How in the world would you make your bacon waffles without one?

Bacon waffles are simply waffles with, yes, pieces of crunchy bacon incorporated into the batter. We serve our bacon waffles with some bananas liberally sauteed in Jack Daniels, some sweetened whipped cream and, of course, a strip of bacon on the side.

If you don’t have a favorite waffle recipe, try this one from Epicurious. As to the bacon, we always recommend Benton’s Bacon, hand-crafted in eastern Tennessee by the legendary Allan Benton. Locally, it’s available at the Grassland Market in Grassland, where Miss Daisy King imports it every week. But call ahead. It goes fast.


About CRC Nashville

Who are we? We are literally two chicks - Catherine Mayhew and Betsy Everett, and a warehouse - the Community Resource Center (CRC). In short, CRC is a non-profit organization that provides household goods, furniture, and appliances to people in desperate need. Think of us as Robin Hoods – without the stealing. Catherine is a former journalist and Betsy is a marketing chick. We are both devoted to acquiring stuff – good stuff, no junk – because that’s what our most fragile citizens deserve. If you have metal desks, televisions that don’t work or underwear you don’t want anymore, don’t give it to us. We’ll sneer at you. If you are companies that have excess primo stuff like furniture in good condition, school supplies, personal hygiene items or pretty much anything else, we’ll be your new best friends.
