Double Bacon Waffle Burger

Sweet waffles, a savory burger, melted cheese and ofcourse bacon. Could this get any better? I’m not sure about having this with a cup of coffee. Burgers go better with Beer. : )

Bacon & Cheese Potato Nachos!

I just love the concept of this – and it doesn’t get any better than this. Cumin, chili powder, jalapeno peppers and bacon. Add a touch of sour cream and/or some ranch and you’re set!
