Serves 4
Serve these tasty skewers, threaded with peaches, plums, crisp bacon and mini waffles, on a bed of fluffy scrambled eggs for a breakfast or brunch that’s unique and fun. Serve with more maple syrup on the side, if you like.
Ingredients: 
  • Canola spray oil
  • 4 ripe but firm peaches, nectarines or plums, or a combination (about 1 1/4 pounds total), pitted and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 8 slices cold bacon
  • 16 frozen 365 Everyday Value® Mini Waffles (any variety), thawed
Method: 
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil, place a large wire rack in the center and lightly coat the rack with spray oil. In a medium bowl, toss fruit with maple syrup. Thread bacon and fruit onto 8 (10-inch) wooden skewers, starting and ending with bacon, weaving a slice between 3 or 4 fruit chunks on each skewer as you go. (Reserve syrupy juices in the bottom of the bowl.) Adjust ingredients to leave about 2 inches of empty space on either end of each skewer. Place kabobs on the rack over the baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes. (Bacon will crackle and pop as it renders fat, so be sure the rack is positioned well over the baking sheet to catch all drips.) Remove from the oven, carefully flip skewers and thread a mini waffle onto either end of each skewer. Drizzle reserved syrupy juices over kabobs, return to the oven and continue to cook until bacon is just crisp and waffles are golden, about 10 minutes more.
