  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Arrange bacon on a broiler pan and bake until crisp, about 15 minutes. Remove the bacon and reduce the oven temperature to 200 degrees F.
  2. Step 2

    Preheat a waffle iron to high.
  3. Step 3

    In a large bowl, whisk the flours, baking powder, kosher salt, and few grinds of black pepper. In a medium bowl, whisk the milk, 1/3 cup melted butter, and egg. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir just to combine. Stir in the cheese and herbs.
  4. Step 4

    Brush the waffle iron with melted butter and spoon in about 1/2 of the batter. Close and cook until the waffle is browned and crisp. Transfer the waffle to a plate and keep warm in the oven. Make another waffle with the remaining batter. Quarter the two waffles, creating 8 smaller waffles.
  5. Step 5

    Mix Dijon mustard and maple syrup. Set aside.
  6. Step 6

    To make a sandwich: top a waffle with the bacon, lettuce, and tomato. Drizzle on some maple-mustard sauce. Add another waffle to top.
