How to cook bacon stuffed pancake
Let’s cook this bacon stuffed pancake together! Easy and convenient, this dish will have your perfect breakfast ready in no time! To make this dish even simpler to prepare, you can simply forgo making your pancakes from scratch and rely on good old pancake mix for that fluffy goodness.
First, however, you’ll need to work on your bacon! To do this, heat a tablespoon of cooking oil in a pan and cook 5 strips of your CDO Young Pork Bacon. Make sure that you’re keeping your heat on a low to medium setting for a slow but steady cooking process. Once it’s crispy, you can turn your bacon over, doing the same to the opposite side. When you’re happy with your bacon’s crispiness, remove your bacon from the pan and chop it up into smaller pieces. Set it aside.
Start on your pancakes by combining all your pancake batter ingredients in a mixing bowl! These include a cup of your pancake mix, one egg, ¾ water, and a tablespoon of canola oil. Mix your ingredients well with a wire whisk to ensure you’ve incorporated all the ingredients well. Next, heat up a clean, non-stick pan and spread a tablespoon of canola oil across it. Scoop up around 6 tablespoons of your pancake batter and pour it into the pan. And to give it your bacon stuffed pancake twist, top it with some of your crispy bacon slices!
Once you see your pancake start to bubble on top, give it a flip and continue cooking for 30 seconds to 1 minute. When the pancake slides across the pan when you shake it, you’ll know that it’s ready to serve! Transfer your piece to a serving plate. Continue to cook all your pancakes until you’ve consumed the entire batter!
Serve your bacon stuffed pancakes with extra CDO Young Pork Bacon on the side. With a piping hot cup of coffee or tea, your breakfast is ready to be enjoyed! Dig in with your family into this delightful and bountiful breakfast! Let us know what you thought of this dish in the comments below.
