Tired of plain syrup? Or are you like my husband who loves bacon with everything? lol!
Try these Pancakes next time you need to switch it up at breakfast! They taste great because they have that bacon flavor, but because you arent eating bacon strips, ou get all the taste without the added calories :)
You can ever go one step better and try this idea with whole wheat pancakes <3
Assemble your ingredients!
Get your Pancake Mix and the other things called for on the box and your Bacon Bits (or already cooked, chopped Bacon)
While your skillet is preheating, make your Pancake mix as called for on the box.
When your skillet is hot, pour about 1/4 cup Pancake mix on to the pan.
Sprinkle on the Bacon Bits to your liking.
*TIP* Using a measuring spoon in this step will help keep things even and also help you use/eat less bacon! I used about 1 tablespoon per pancake which = about 25 calories.
After about a while check the underside of your pancake, if its golden Flip It. If not, wait a moment more and check again until ready.
Repeat steps for the rest of your pancakes.
*TIP* One secret to always fluffy Pancakes is to only flip them once! So don't flip it until its ready :)
Now that you've got your shortstack all ready, you can add your other favorite breakfast items :)
I made scrambled eggs with cheese.
*TIP* Want to save on calories? Put your syrup in a dish to the side, then dip your fork in the syrup before picking up a piece of Pancake! This way the syrup doesn't soak into your Pancakes and you dont soak up the calories :)
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so make it awesome!
Add some favorite coffee or tea and a few flowers and voila *Instant Mood Boost*
PS - Don't worry, I split the food on the plate in this picture in half and shared with my hubby! lol I promise I didn't eat it all myself. Just wanted a great photo XD
