Brown Sugar Bacon Waffles

I found this recipe at Recipe Rhapsody, who found it at Joy the Baker. I had to make it, there really wasn't an option! It was good, not as sweet as I had imagined but good! Gray loved them more than I did but we both enjoyed them for sure, really I could have just eaten all 10 slices of that delicious caramelized bacon by myself.

10 slices of bacon
1/4 cup brown sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil Arrange bacon in a single layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle generously with brown sugar. Place in the upper third of the oven and bake until sugar is caramelized and bacon is brown and crispy, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Immediately remove bacon slices using a pair of tongs and place on a cutting board. Work quickly or they will stick (don't try to use paper towels or you will have a huge stick mess!). Let cool before chopping. Once cool, chop the bacon into bite size bits and set to the side.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
2/3 cups vegetable oil
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups buttermilk
Preheat your waffle iron. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and brown sugar. Whisk together. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, buttermilk and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and fold in. Once almost fully incorporated, add the bacon bits. Stir together. It's fine if you have lumps remaining in your batter. Cook in your waffle iron.
