Bacon Bit Pancakes

Good afternoon! I hope you all had a great breakfast/brunch today. I just wanted to do a quick post to share our sweet and salty breakfast.

Last month, we went over to our friend's house for brunch. We were in charge of making all the pancakes. I had brought over pancake fillings such as milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips. Our hostess also gave me sliced bananas and bacon bits to work with - one of the line cooks at her restaurant had recommended the bacon bits. So, I made pancakes with bacon bits in them, some with bacon bits and chocolate chips, banana slices with chocolate chips - the combinations were endless.

Today, I woke up thinking about those bacon bit pancakes and decided to remake them for our breakfast. I took out four bacon strips and popped them in the oven for 15 minutes (flipped them at the half-way mark). My knife skills aren't very good, so I used kitchen shears to cut three of the bacon strips into little bits. What happened to the fourth bacon strip? Howard nommed it.

I used this pancake recipe again, which has been my go-to recipe because it's quick and easy to make. After blotting up the grease from the bacon bits, I tossed them into the batter, gave it a quick stir, and started dropping them into the pan.

I didn't even have to use oil or butter to make the pancakes, the bacon bits provided enough grease still!

My brother once said, "bacon and maple syrup taste really good together." Yes. Yes they do.

Gosh, I love "action" shots. I was clicking away while Howard helped pour the maple syrup on. I kept telling him to pour near the center, but the photos turned out fine. =P

Look, you can see one of the bacon bits on the side.

I also asked Howard to tear open one of his pancakes so that we could show you the bacon bits embedded inside. =)

Enjoy and have a nice weekend!
