What’s Cookin’ – Bacon Strip Pancakes

A friend of mine posted this picture on my Facebook page.

Bacon Strip Pancakes.  (Doing a Google search I found out that this recipe appeared in magazine ads for Aunt Jemima pancake mix around 1962.)

Don’t they look delicious?  I loved pigs in a blanket (sausage links wrapped in pancakes) when I was a kid, but I never heard of Bacon Strip Pancakes.

I don’t usually use boxed mixes.  I like to make stuff from scratch.  It’s not only cheaper, but I can more easily control the ingredients.  However, there was a box of Hungry Jack pancake mix and syrup in my pantry.  I guess one of the kids bought it so I went ahead and used it to try these out.

Bacon Strip Pancakes ingredients.

First of all, cook 6 strips of bacon to your desired level of crispness.  They really won’t cook more during the pancake griddling step, so make sure you cook it how you like it.  You can use whichever batter you like but you will need about 2 cups to make 6 pancakes.

Heat your griddle or skillet over medium heat until water droplets hiss and evaporate when they hit the surface.  Place pieces of cooked bacon on the griddle, pour about ⅓ cup of batter over each strip of bacon.  Cook until the batter bubbles and it is browned.

Turn each pancake over and brown the other side.

Serve immediately with pats of butter and some warmed syrup.

Yummy.

      I hear you! It’s funny the number of people who had moms and grandmothers that made these for them! They are fun to make for the kids.

    OMG HEAVEN! I substituted Splenda for the sugar and also used whole wheat flour (and oops, was out of Vanilla!) these were the best pnkeaacs! So fluffy and my uber-picky son ate 4! Can’t wait to make your Bacon, Cheddar & Onion Scones next! And your site is beautiful the pictures alone inspire me to get in the kitchen!
