Cooking with Beer - Beerlicious Waffle Wings

When my husband sent me a link for Maple Bacon Chicken and Waffle Wings on Dude Foods I had to make them. It was like a moral imperative!

Of course, I can't leave well enough alone and had to beerify the recipe. I admit I took some shortcuts and cheated, which is very unlike me, but I was going for instant gratification. And, boy-oh-boy, was it gratifying. Those friggin' things are flippin' awesome! NOM!

I cheated by using chicken wings from the deli I go to. They were perfect! Crispy and flavorful and I didn't have to make them. Works for me!

I used my hubby's home brewed nut brown ale. The mild sweetness of the beer worked quite nicely in the recipe.

Beerlicious Waffle Wings

8 Slices Maple Bacon, Crisped And Crumbled
2 Cups Original Bisquick® Mix
1 Egg
2 Tbps Vegetable Oil
1 12-Oz Bottle Nut Brown Ale
16 Breaded Chicken Drummettes
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup

Heat waffle iron; coat with a thin layer of vegetable oil.

Mix Bisquick, beer, egg, and oil together until combined. Stir in bacon.

Dip a drummette in the batter and place in one section of the waffle iron. Repeat until you fill each section of the waffle iron.

Drizzle a little extra batter over the wings to make sure they're good and coated.

Close lid of waffle iron. Bake about 5 minutes or until steaming stops. I pressed gently on the lid so the waffle sections in the wing valleys cooked better.

Carefully remove waffle wings.  Seperate into individual pieces. Drizzle lightly with maple syrup.

Repeat with remaining batter and drumettes.

Mmm, mmm, MMMM!
