The breakfast project

Crispy pancetta waffles (serves 6 people):

1 1/3 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
2 eggs, separated
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 3/4 cups milk
Ten slices of (thick cut) pancetta, cubed

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients.
  2. Separate the eggs, adding the yolks to the dry ingredient mixture, and placing the whites in a small mixing bowl.
  3. Beat whites until moderately stiff; set aside.
  4. Add milk and melted butter to dry ingredient mixture and blend.
  5. Fold stiff egg whites into mixture.
  6. Cube pancetta and crips up. Drain and add to the waffle mixture.
  7. Ladle mixture into hot waffle iron and bake.
  8. Serve with a drizzle of  pure maple syrup. 

This is what I'm doing next time I make this: I will double the recipe, cook it all up and eat the following mornings with an egg sandwiched in between. Mcgriddle style, are you with me?
