I know this sounds crazy, that’s what I thought as well when I first saw the picture of a bacon pancake in one of Martha Stewart’s magazines. A whole year later, I still could not get the curiosity out of my head so I decided that I was going to give it a try. I liked the results, but J wasn’t too into it. I think it was because of the batter which was a little too dense. So anyway, we had a fabulous breakfast as I also made banana pancakes! Ever since we have been going to Nosh Cafe I am all about brown sugar bacon, so I added my own twist this these yummy pancakes.

Pancake batter (homemade or from store bought mix)

Bacon (as much or as little as you want…I went a little crazy)

Brown sugar

Maple syrup

I would highly recommend making the bacon in the oven. I didn’t because I was being lazy. I usually make my bacon on Georgie (George Foreman Grill), but I didn’t feel like taking it out. I made it in a pan and I ended up messing up the Teflon because of the sugar. In retrospect, I am so glad that I did not use my Georgie! So the oven option is the best, especially, if you have a wire rack, in case you prefer that your bacon does not cook in its own fat!

Cover a cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper. Set a wire rack on the cookie sheet and line bacon on the wire rack in a single layer. Sprinkle generously with brown sugar and bake until crisp. Take out of the oven and place on paper towel. Crumble bacon once it has cooled down enough to handle.

Make pancake batter and add bacon. Cook pancake and serve with maple syrup! YUM!!!!
