A spekkedik is a waffle with bacon and sausage, a classic northern Dutch and East Frisian dish.
Servings: 4 Preparation: 20 min

- meat: 200 g (breakfast) bacon cut into small slices or strips; 200 g dry sausage thinly sliced
Mix the ingredients, except the meat and stir until it forms a lumpy batter. Cover the bowl and let it stand overnight in a cool place. The next day it becomes a thick batter. Add water at discretion: the batter must be thicker than normal pancake batter.
Let an electric waffle iron heat considerably. Grease the iron with a piece of bacon fat. Put a pile of batter onto the hot iron, put a slice of bacon and two slices of sausage on, close the iron and allow the waffle to get done in about half a minute. The spekdik is not crisp- it stays soft.
