Ingredients: Bacon Pancakes Dippers

  • 1 large egg plus one egg white
  • 1 ½ cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter, cooled
  • 1 ½ cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons aluminum free baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 pound thick cut applewood smoked bacon

Directions: Bacon Pancake Dippers

Heat the griddle to medium- high heat. Place strips of bacon on the hot griddle, and be careful of grease splatter. Cook for 5-7 minutes per side. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate with foil covering the top to keep the bacon warm.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and buttermilk add melted butter and whisk for 30 seconds, set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.

Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and gently mix until all the ingredients are wet. There will be lumps.

Take your cooked bacon and place it back on the hot griddle, leaving about 3” of space between each strip. Cook only 6 strips at a time until you are comfortable with more. Carefully pour pancake patter over the bacon in a long oval shape and allow to cook until small bubbles form on the surface and the edges are set, about 2 minutes. Flip the pancake over and cook 2 minute longer.

Pour your favorite syrup in a small mason jar or other small bowl for you to dip the bacon pancake dippers in.
