Pancakes. A weekend staple at our house. I’ve been making them from scratch for a good 20 years and the whole family likes them. I’ve changed it up by using whole-wheat flour, adding chocolate chips and once I tried blueberries (I was the only one who liked the blueberry). I was inspired by pinterest where they used a full strip of bacon and poured the batter over it. Today, I used bacon bits.
I had a partial bag of Oscar Meyer bacon bits and simply sprinkled the bacon bits in the batter. It took a little longer to cook the pancake completely. You can add as much or little bacon as you want.
Usually when I change things up a bit, I am met with a little resistance. Today all it took was butter and syrup and they dug in with no hesitation. Thumbs up from the family!
Here’s the recipe I use for my pancakes
1 cup flour
¾ cup + 2 tbs. Milk
1 tbs. white sugar
2 tbs. vegetable oil
1 tbs. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
In a bowl, beat the egg until fluffy. Add remaining ingredients and beat until combined and there are no lumps. Cook on a 350-degree griddle until golden brown. Serve warm.
Since my kids are teenagers, I usually double the recipe so there is enough for everyone. Leftovers, if there are any, reheat really well. Enjoy!
