This are great. Light and fluffy. I cooked them on my grandmother's 80 year old waffle iron (she took good care of things!). Loved the pecans and the bacon grease added a lot of flavor. These have a bit more "fat" than we usually use, so they will be a special treat waffle.

I really enjoyed these waffles dienia, they were crisp and crunchy just the way I like them and they were tender on the inside. I enjoyed the flavor of the waffle and the pecans added a nice texture. Drizzled with maple syrup they made me very happy this morning. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe. Made for CQ2 - Texas.
