Bacon Pancakes are sweet and savory! The smokey bacon inside a nice fluffy pancake makes breakfast complete! A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen

Bacon Pancakes

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:


So I texted him that photo and said, “Umm, this isn’t supposed to happen!” He replied back, “No it isn’t! You better call, they messed that cast up!” See as it was 11pm, I had to wait till morning, the flap you see down at the bottom by the toes that were lifting up as well. I cut the long strip off so I can try and sleep but was hard. I could not get my leg into a position. I sent this to my mom, she asked, is your leg swelled? It looks like swelled? It was starting to swell a bit. I have to get this cast off, there is something wrong, besides it unraveling.
As soon as 8am came, I called the main health center, where they put the cast on is a little branch off this main health center. I explained what was going on. They said to get there around 3:15 to get to change the cast. I called, emailed and texted friends, I needed a ride. It being so short notice, many could not help, they were all trying to figure out how to get me to the health center, finally, I found someone who managed to rearrange their schedule and took me.
When the cast tech called me back, I got up, started to walk and she saw how much trouble I was having and got a very strange look on her face. She said: “Stop, stand still for a minute. Put your foot down and just stand regularly.” So I did that. She then went, “Oh my god, this cast is not at 90 degrees, it set at 45 degrees at least. You are so lucky you did not break your knee.” She got me a wheelchair to get me back to the cast room. I was right, I was in the cast wrong. The woman who put that cast on. I knew she was new, she did admit she had not cast in awhile. She said to me that she needed to take stuff home to practice more. I told the tech this as she was taking that green cast off, I even told her how she would not do the pink stripe like I asked for.
 As she was cutting the cast off, she noticed I was padded wrong. Plus I did not have lambs wool in between my toes. She explained they put that between your toes in the summer, because of the heat. The lambs wool prevents athletes foot. So she redid my cast, she even did the pink stripe to make look like a watermelon.
It feels much better and I can stand and walk! Wow, was my low back and knee hurting from that experience. I took some Tylenol and went to sleep, so I can rest. See what I mean by a crazy 24 hours???

When I woke up this morning, I was hungry, I admit I didn’t each very much the day before because of the cast situation. I decided I wanted something really good, something filling, PANCAKES! I had a bag of real bacon pieces, and though, ohhh bacon pancakes, they turned out very good, they hit the spot!

Sweet and savory is what bacon pancakes are! A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen.


  • 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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Now stir all the ingredients together to make a nice smooth batter.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
