  4. Carefully remove the crispy waffle and continue with cooking your second one.

  5. Once cooked, leave the second waffle on the waffle maker and add 2 slices of cheddar cheese plus a spoonful of bacon bits. Place the first cooked waffle over it and close the waffle maker once again. Cook for 1 more minute.
    Serve hot and enjoy!
