Bacon Pancakes are sweet and savory! The smokey bacon inside a nice fluffy pancake makes breakfast complete! A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen
I had a very interesting 24+ hours. As you recall in the post Italian Peasant Bread, I had to be re casted. After I wrote the post, I do admit it was all pre wrote except the opening part of did I or did I not get the cast off. Anyway, I was having issues with the cast, that was getting worse as the hours went by.
First I was having issues standing. If I put my cast foot flat on the ground, like your supposed to when you stand, I felt like my knee was breaking backward, like it was trying to break. Then I had issues walking, I couldn’t. Again felt like my knee was being pushed backward, and my hip was being put out the socket. The only way could walk was on my toes, that not food considering all my weight was being put on the foot, which is a problem, plus it was very uncomfortable and not easy.
Then, the real fun began, as I was laying in bed I was getting this stabbing feeling like something was slicing me. This was why I was feeling that, yes I know there is a few hairs on my leg, not easy shaving your legs with a cast on, so ignore that. Instead look at the cast, do you see what was slicing me:
I had texted a friend the photo saying something like: “This is crazy I got to call in the morning. I think this cast is on wrong, I won’t make 2 weeks in this cast, I can’t take 5 hours of being in it!” He replied back, “First of all, it looks like it is too high, that could be the problem.”
As he was texting me, the cast where it was cutting my skin did this:
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 3/4 cup milk
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- bacon crumbled
- The first thing you want to do is put all the dry ingredients measured out into a mixing bowl. After you get all measured and dumped into it, just give them a quick stir to mix them up a bit.
- Next, you want to add the wet ingredients. You can either all all to milk and add all at one, or add them separate. It actually doesn’t matter. You can if you want do a buttermilk instead regular milk. Or if you do not have butter milk, add One tablespoon of while vinegar to the milk and it will sour it like buttermilk.
- Now stir all the ingredients together to make a nice smooth batter.
- After you mixed the batter, let it sit while you melt some butter in a frying pan. Once the butter is melted, then it is time to start making the pancakes.
- Pour some batter into the pan, and sprinkle on top the bacon. I know some will stir the bacon into the batter then pour it out. That is ok to do, but restaurants actually do pancakes like this when comes to flavored things, like blueberries, strawberries, bacon, etc. A good friend taught me this trick and I what I have found by doing it this way, is one it gives better flavor to the pancake. And also if you got a family they all want something different, this makes it easier to do many different types of pancakes. Cook the pancakes until you see bubbling on the surface, it time to flip them when you see that. Flip and cook another minute or two. Time to do another pancake, Now the one thing most people complain about when you make pancakes. The first ones always come out good, the next one seems to burn. A good trick to prevent that, is just before you take that first pancake off, actually lower your heat a bit. The butter is hot, and actually burning as you get to the next pancake, that why the pancake may burn. By lowering the temperature of the heat it bring the butter down and maintain a steady heat, so it wont burn.
- After you are all done, Serve them up with some butter and syrup and enjoy your homemade pancakes. Truthfully, they are much easier to do than a box mix, plus they just have that good homemade taste!
