These Pancakes will absolutely rock you! The recipe and idea was a gift from one of my co-workers and I have to say, what a great gift. Who wouldn’t love finding a slice of bacon right in the middle of your pancake? My kids LOVE these and can make them themselves. As a cheat, use your favorite pancake mix if in a hurry!
Music Selection: We Will Rock You – Queen
1 package bacon
Favorite pancake mix (we like Krusteaz) OR the following recipe:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup (240 ml) milk
2 tablespoons (28 grams) unsalted butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375 deg F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Lay out bacon single layer and bake until fully cooked and a bit crunchy (15 – 20 minutes). Remove from oven. Place on plate with paper towels to remove excess oil.
In large bowl, mix the dry pancake ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt and sugar). In another bowl, beat the eggs and add the milk. Mix into the dry ingredients, mixing well. Slowly add in the melted butter.
In large pan, melt some additional butter on medium heat. Taking a spoon, place a ¼ cup of the pancake batter on a long strip about 2 inches wide and 8 inches long (just a bit wider and longer than your bacon strips). Place a strip of bacon in the middle of it. Then place another ¼ cup of pancake mix to cover the bacon. Let fry until it is browned on the bottom. With a flipper, gently lift and flip the pancake and let it cook until browned and the batter is cooked throughout. Proceed until you use up the pancake batter and bacon.
Serve with syrups and the left over bacon!
