For the past few years, the big news in fair food has been the donut burger. You know, just a bacon cheeseburger with a glazed donut as the bun. This year, my good friend finally ate the donut burger and told me that it was nothing great. A few hours later he was walking by an unassuming stand for a local favorite burger shop called the White Hut. In the corner of their stand was a small sign advertising a double bacon cheeseburger that instead had waffles as the bun. He took the bait and decided that it was the best thing at the whole fair! I immediately made one at home after feeling left out.
Thin patties made the same size as the waffle iron.
Quick sear on both sides is all they really need.
Stack em up in the pan to help the cheese melt.
Bacon on top.
Don't forget the syrup dipping sauce!
These burgers were really really good. It's almost surprising how well it went together when it was literally just simple waffles and burgers. In fact, Mandi claims it's the best burger shes ever had!
I used this waffle recipe. The patties were super thin and liberally seasoned with salt and pepper. The bacon was thick and the cheese was American. The syrup was some crappy HFCS imitation brand. Don't use the real stuff for this.
