One of our favorite childhood past times is making s'mores around the campfire. Whether you were a slow toaster, holding your stick miles above the flame, or a fire starter, shoving the marshmallow skewered stick straight into the flame, that gooey, slightly burnt marshmallow coated in melted chocolate smashed between two squares of graham crackers was one of the finest creations of modern man.
Since we are adults now with adult responsibilities, our schedules are a little tighter and we had to start combining things. So with that in mind, we give you: The Breakfast S'more. (Note: You can consume these for any meal or snack, not just breakfast. We at ours for lunch)
Recipe developed by Emily Tylman and the FWx Team
Total 1 hr 15 min
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs, plus more for garnish
- 1 Tbsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 1/4 cups whole milk
- 1 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) unsalted butter, melted
- 3 large eggs, separated
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 8 strips bacon
- 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 16 marshmallows
- Fried egg, for serving
- Maple syrup, for serving
1. MAKE THE WAFFLE Preheat a waffle iron. In a large bowl, whisk the flour with the graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a small bowl, combine the milk, melted butter and egg yolks. Stir the liquid into the dry ingredients just until moistened; lumps are okay.
2. In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites at medium speed until frothy. Increase the speed to high and beat until firm peaks form. Add the sugar and beat until the whites are stiff and glossy. Fold the whites into the batter until no streaks remain.
3. Oil or butter the waffle iron. Pour 1 cup of batter into the iron and bake until the waffle is golden, about 6 minutes, depending on the iron. Transfer the waffle to an oven rack to keep warm. Continue to cook the remaining batter in 3 batches. (There should be no need to re-grease the iron between waffles.) Separate the waffles into quarters.
4. MAKE THE BACON Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
5. Cook bacon on a rack placed over a baking sheet for 18-20 minutes until crisp. Let cool on a paper towel.
6. While bacon cools melt chocolate in a double boiler over medium heat.
7. Using tongs, dip each piece of bacon in chocolate, coating completely.
8. Place chocolate bacon on a clean baking sheet and place in fridge until chocolate is firm—at least 20 minutes.
9. ASSEMBLE THE S’MORE Turn on the broiler. Place one waffle onto a baking sheet; top with one piece of chocolate bacon followed by two marshmallows. Broil 6 inches from the heat until the marshmallows are puffed and golden brown in spots, about 3 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer to a plate. Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs and top with another waffle. Place a fried egg on top of the s’more and drizzle with maple syrup; eat immediately. Repeat with the remaining waffles.
