DIRECTIONS

  • In a bowl, stir the flour, sugar, and baking powder together; set aside.
  • Bring 1 quart of water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat; stir in salt, then the grits, whisking constantly until the water comes back to a boil.
  • Decrease heat to low, continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until very thick and creamy, about 30 minutes.
  • Stir in the melted butter and scrape grits into a large bowl.
  • Stir in the egg yolks, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  • Add the flour mixture, stirring only until combined, followed by the milk.
  • The batter should be thin.
  • In another bowl, beat the egg whites with a mixer until stiff but still glossy.
  • Heat a greased waffle iron; stir bacon into the batter; fold in the egg whites.
  • Cook waffles, one at a time, following the directions from the waffle-iron manufacturer; they should be crisp and brown when done.
  • Serve with softened butter and syrup.
