Tasty Tuesday: Bacon Pancakes

No, not bacon and pancakes.  Bacon IN pancakes.  Yeah baby!

When December's Everyday Food mag came in the mail and I spied an entire section devoted to BACON- I couldn't help but think it IS Christmas!!!  Whoohoo!

This weekend, some of my favorite cousins were in town for our annual early Christmas party that we have with them, and two of them stayed with us.  It seemed like a perfect time to bust out Martha's Bacon Pancakes recipe.  So glad I did- the pancakes were much more tender than my typical Bisquik faire (no offense Bisquik- you kick booty at waffles still, honest) and my cousins gave their approval.

Everyday Food's
Bacon Pancakes
Ingredients:
1 c flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp coarse salt
1 1/4 cups buttermilk (if you don't have buttermilk, mix 1 tbsp of vinegar or lemon juice with 1 cup of milk and let stand 5 minutes for each cup you need- an easy substitution that's tried and true!)
2 tbsp melted butter
1 egg

What to do:
Mix all powdered ingredients in a large bowl (I like to use a spouted one with a rubber foot for pancakes).  In another bowl, whisk together the butter and milk, then egg until blended.  Combine the wet and dry mixtures and whisk just until well combined.  Cook 8 slices of bacon over medium heat until crisp (5-6 minutes on the first side, then flip and cook for 1-3 more minutes.  Drain on a plate covered in paper towels.  Reserve 1 tsp of bacon grease.  (I used thick cut center cut bacon- which I would recommend)

Lightly grease the griddle or pancake pan with the bacon grease and pour 1/4 cup full of batter onto the griddle.  Top with a slice of bacon.  Cook until some bubbles appear and a few have burst, then flip and cook until browned.  Serve bacon side up with butter and syrup if desired.

YUM!  Talk about comfort food huh?
