bacon and cheddar waffles

American Father’s Day is coming up. I specify, because when you have family that doesn’t live in America, you realize that you unknowingly miss all sorts of major holidays. Whoops! Anywhoo, what better way to treat your dad than a delicious breakfast of BACON AND CHEDDAR WAFFLES and homemade syrup. It’s the best of all worlds coming together to form the world’s most perfect breakfast world. I like to call it a Ron Swanson, Leslie Knope, Buddy the Elf compromise.
