This is another delightful, delicious, and easy brunch or breakfast recipe to share with your family and friends. If you like pancakes and bacon, this combination of the two is perfect! My 16-year old gave these 5 thumbs up.

The batter I used was a little on the thick side, resulting in a pillowy "sandwich" of pancake wrapped around the strip of chewy, crispy bacon. My son said they were perfect just as they were - but I think when I make them again, I might thin the batter a little more, and maybe pour a little batter down before laying the bacon down so that it's fully encased in pancake instead of exposed.

You can certainly use your favorite homemade pancake batter recipe too instead of a mix, but for once I actually used pancake mix because I had it in the house (we had bought a large bag of pancake mix instead of Bisquick at the store, and I've been using it for biscuits - this might be the first time I've actually made pancakes with it)!

Thank you for joining us this week - we hope you were inspired by all the #BrunchWeek recipes. Don’t forget to see what the #BrunchWeek Bloggers made today!

Bacon Pancake Dippers inspired by Family Fresh Meals

6 - 8 pieces of bacon, cooked to your desired crispiness
2 cups of your favorite pancake mix
2 eggs
1 cup milk
Maple Syrup for serving

  1. Combine the pancake mix with the eggs and milk; whisk until mostly smooth.
  2. Heat a griddle to medium - high heat and grease with butter or cooking spray.
  3. Place bacon slices with about 3 - 4 inches of space between them, lined up on the griddle. Pour a line of pancake batter over the top of the bacon slice to cover.
  4. Cook until the top of the pancake is bubbly, and the edges look dry. Flip and continue cooking another 1 1/2 - 2 minutes until the bottom is browned and pancakes are cooked through.
  5. Serve immediately with maple syrup to dip the pancake strips in.

  1. I love the idea of adding a strip of bacon down the center of these pancakes Rebekah.

  2. I've wanted to try making these for such a long time, but it seems like every time I crisp up bacon, my husband inhales it immediately! LOL

  3. I've seen these on pinterest - glad to know someone who's succeeded in them!

  4. I've been meaning to try this! Too cool!
