Soak Bacon In Pancake Batter And Combine The Ultimate Breakfast Duo
Bacon-stuffed pancake strips are the ultimate sweet and savory combination, and they’re about as easy to make as regular old pancakes and bacon cooked separately.
To make this viral TikTok breakfast, cook bacon and allow it to cool while you make your pancake batter. Be sure to pat your bacon dry with a paper towel to remove excess oil.
One way to combine the batter and bacon is to dunk the strips in the bowl of batter, coating both sides completely, before placing them in a hot pan with a little melted butter.
You can also scoop the batter onto your pan in the shape of bacon strips, placing the strips over top, and then spooning more batter over them in a sandwich-like layering.
The first option has a stronger bacon flavor and more crunch, since the layer of batter is thinner. The second option will create a thicker coating for a more pancake-heavy dish.
Make sure to flip the strips halfway through cooking so both sides turn out golden brown. Once they’re done, try dipping them in jam, Nutella, peanut butter, or whipped cream.
