Cheesy Bacon Waffles with Spicy Ketchup #SundaySupper

I got a new waffle iron for Christmas this past year. I became obsessed. I experimented with all sorts of breakfast waffles for the kids, they dipped away with their syrup. Then I wanted to try a savory recipe. Of course I tried to make these Cheesy Bacon Waffles a little on the healthy side so instead of using leftover mashed potatoes I tried using leftover mashed cauliflower. Epic fail. The waffles wouldn’t form. So I decided this was going to have to be one recipe that wasn’t healthified on my end! So these Cheesy Bacon Waffles were born, because well everything is better with bacon right?

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve been able to gather around the table and break bread with my Sunday Supper family because life has been a bit crazy with the Summer being in full swing. Today we are gathering to break waffles. YES I said waffles. Did you know that July 29th is National Waffle Iron Day? Who knew! This event is being hosted by Sue Lau from A Palatable Pastime  so a special Thank you to Sue.

The common question most often asked while being pregnant is “are you having any cravings?” Well  yes I did. I ate bacon. I ate a lot of bacon. My daughter hates bacon but yes I continue to still add it to everything. I usually buy center cut because it’s lower in sodium and fat, hey whatever I have to do to feel less guilty when I add bacon to my dishes.
