Instructions


  1. Waffles: Sift flour, powdered sugar, baking soda, and baking powder into a large bowl. Stir in salt.

  2. Waffles: Add buttermilk, butter, and egg whites. Whisk until combined. Some lumps are fine, do not over beat.

  3. Waffles: In a 7-inch round Belgian waffle iron heated on medium low, ladle about 1 ½ cups batter into the iron. You want it to fill up the whole iron to make nice slider buns. Cook until waffle is golden brown and cooked through, about 5 minutes.

  4. Waffles: Break off cooked waffles into quarters and keep warm in a 200°F oven until ready to serve.

  5. Patties: Combine ground pork, egg, and soaked bread in a large mixing bowl.

  6. Patties: In a separate small bowl, stir salt, pepper, sage, thyme, and maple seasoning.

  7. Patties: Combine half the amount of the spices into the pork mixture.

  8. Patties: Shape 2-ounce patties into balls and flatten slightly, making an indent with your thumb in the center. Repeat until all are formed.

  9. Patties: Season with remaining rub and sear in a skillet on medium heat. Cook until internal temperature reaches 160°F. If the patties get too dark, continue cooking in a 400°F.

  10. Assembly: Lay one waffle slider bun down and drizzle with some maple syrup, lay 2 strips bacon down, a patty, waffle slider bun and 2 more strips of bacon. Secure with skewer. Drizzle more maple syrup over the slider.

  11. Assembly: Assemble remaining sliders and serve warm.
