Crispy Cornmeal-Bacon Waffles

“A great Sunday Morning Breakfast. Don't over mix waffle batter; its chemistry resembles that of muffins ratther than that of pancakes, and similar rules apply. The less you beat, the better, and- as with muffin batter- lumpy is better than smooth. It is best to use the batter right after mixing it: baking powder gradually loses its puff power once it has been combined with the wet ingredients.”
