Father’s Day is around the corner, so I decided to search for a dad inspired shenanigan. And what says gift-for-dad more than bacon. So I decided to attempt these bacon pancake dippers! The pin says that you sandwich your bacon in-between two layers of pancake batter to make the ultimate dip-able breakfast snack.
- Pancake mix (unless you have a recipe where you make it from scratch)
- Package of bacon
Step 1: Pre heat oven to 400 degrees. Lay your bacon flat on a baking sheet that has edges (so the grease doesn’t fall off into your oven)
Step 2: Bake your bacon for 8 minutes. While its baking, make your pancake batter according to the box.
Step 3: Take your bacon out around the 8 minute mark (leave in a little longer if it is not crispy enough for your taste).
Step 4: Lightly grease your skillet
Step 5: Put one layer of batter in the shape of your bacon.
Step 6: Place your strip of bacon on top of the batter after about 30 seconds, then cover with more batter.
Step 7: Flip your Bacon pancake and cook until both sides are golden brown.
I was surprised with how well the pancake stayed together. I was expecting it to be much harder to make, so I have to revoke shenanigans on the difficulty. As far as taste, it tastes like bacon sandwiched in between two pancakes (shocking, I know). I liked the mix of salty and sweet, and it is definitely a fun way to serve breakfast. My boyfriend liked it ok, but he said overall he would stick to having his bacon separate from his pancakes.
