Waffles have always been a very familial and comforting dish for me – my father would make them for me and my brother most mornings. My restaurant is very meat-centric. I make no apologies for that – it’s what I like to eat and what I like to cook. So it made every bit of sense me for to incorporate bacon into waffles for our brunch menu. It doesn’t get more meat-centric than that! Drizzled with local maple syrup, the waffle serves as the base for buttermilk fried chicken, creating a delicious, sweet and salty dish.
