Blackberry Bacon Waffles

It’s National Waffle Day!

Typically I don’t do ‘National Days’ but for some reason as I was perusing Twitter, I saw the mention of National Waffle Day.

At this point, I was wishy-washy over what we were going to have for dinner…

I opened the frig and found bacon, blackberries and buttermilk.

Tonight we’re having breakfast for dinner.

You’ll love this – the waffles have a gentle hint of the saltiness of  bacon balanced with the sweetness of  fresh blackberries and blackberry syrup.

Top them with fresh blackberries and you have a simple, delicious dinner…

or breakfast…

or lunch…
