For the waffles, preheat the waffle iron as per manufacturer’s instructions. Whisk the buttermilk, evaporated milk, melted buttter and eggs together until smooth. 

Whisk in the sugar and flour. Lightly grease the waffle iron with non stick cooking spray and cook each waffle for 2-3 mins until crisp. 

To serve, top each portion of waffles with some bacon, walnuts and Chevin rounds. Scatter some basil on top and add more honey, if desired. 

TIP: 
The evaporated milk can be replaced with regular milk or more buttermilk, if preferred.
