Blueberry bacon cornmeal waffles

Add more crunch and flavour to your waffles by using part cornmeal in the batter. Since it's the summer, add a handful of B.C. blueberries to make the waffles even better. 

1 cup cornmeal
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cornstarch
3 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1¾ cups buttermilk
1/4 cup salted butter, melted
2 cups B.C. blueberries, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup cooked and diced bacon, approx. 6 slices
maple syrup, to taste

Preheat waffle iron to a medium heat (350°F/176°C).

In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients.

In another bowl whisk the eggs and buttermilk, then mix egg mixture into the dry mixture.

Stir in the melted butter then fold in 1 cup of blueberries and the bacon.

Brush the hot waffle iron with oil or butter, then ladle batter into each mould until ¾ full.
