You have to try this, tomorrow!

I don't have pictures, but you can use your imagination for this one.

Cut some bacon into smallish pieces, cook in a pan until crispy and then drain on some paper towels. When cooled, chop finer.

Add 1 teaspoon of yeast and 1 teaspoon of sugar to 1/2 cup warm water (105 degrees), let it sit to activate and get frothy.

In a large bowl, sift:
1 cup corn meal
1 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt

Separate three eggs and whisk the whites until they form stiff peaks. Set aside.

Add yeasty water, about 1 cup of buttermilk, 2 tablespoons of melted butter and egg yolks to the dry ingredients, mix. Fold in the egg whites gently. Cover and set aside for up to an hour to rise.

Heat your waffle iron, spray with oil, put in a scoop of batter, sprinkle with chopped bacon and cook.

These are great served with a little butter and maple syrup.
