Are you a bacon lover? We sure like it around here, so when I saw this idea online, I knew we had to give it a whirl. It's SO simple and a fun change up to plain ol' pancakes!
I was also thinking that this might be our Valentine's breakfast using two slices of bacon in a V-shape and making the pancakes into a heart shape over the bacon. SO FUN!!!
Here's what you'll need:
Your favorite pancake batter (a pancake mix from a bag or your own from scratch - I used THIS one)
A package of bacon
Cook your bacon until almost done. It will cook more with the pancakes. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to soak up the grease.
We have monster bacon I tell you! Yours can be any size.
Mix up your pancake batter. Place however many slices of bacon you can fit on your griddle, leaving plenty of room for the pancake batter.
Pour some pancake batter around and over each slice of bacon.
When cooked on one side, carefully flip each pancake over. Mine were so big I had to use two spatulas.
I didn't think my kids could eat one of these whole pancakes above since they were so big. So I cut the rest of my bacon in half and made more normal sized bacon pancakes for them.
They were just the right size for the little ones.
Drizzle with syrup and enjoy!
We thought they were pretty fun! Enjoy!!
