Serves 4
1/2 pound bacon
2 cups buttermilk pancake mix
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Black pepper
Dill, chive and parsley, finely chopped 
3/4 cup sharp white cheddar, shredded 
Butter, melted for brushing plus 1 tablespoon
4 eggs, for topping
Preheat oven to 375°F. Arrange bacon on a slotted broiler pan and bake until crisp, 15-18 minutes. Let cool and chop.

Preheat a waffle maker to medium. 

In a medium bowl, mix pancake mix with buttermilk and sour cream. Season batter with onion and garlic powders, pepper and chopped herbs. Stir in chopped bacon and cheese.

Brush waffle maker with melted butter and ladle 1/3 of the batter on to the hot iron. Let cook for 5-6 minutes. 

Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Once butter is hot, add eggs, season and cook until desired doneness. 

Top each waffle with 1 egg and serve.
