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!
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
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!
