cheddar-cornmeal waffle blt...

1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups cornmeal
2 Tbsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
4 eggs, separated
2 cups milk
8 Tbsp butter, melted
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
8 oz bacon, cooked

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt & sugar. In a medium bowl whisk together egg yolks, milk and melted butter. Add to dry ingredients and stir until combined. Stir in cheese.
In another medium bowl beat the egg whites until stiff. Gently fold into batter.
Bake on waffle iron (according to iron directions).
Toast waffles under the broiler for a few minutes and assemble with mayo, bacon, lettuce, tomato, salt & pepper.

This was a winner. It was a nice change from original blt's on toast. You could easily make the waffles ahead of time and just toast them under the broiler right before serving to cut down on the prep. My kids ate the insides of the sandwich, then dunked the waffles in a little syrup...not exactly what I had planned, but whatever..they ate their dinner.

I love it! I always try to think of creative ways to do the BLT. With waffles sounds great!
