Bacon Pancake!!!?? Oh no she didn't!

Oooooh yes I did.

And it was the
BEST pancake I have EVER eaten in my life. Ever.

Apple Bacon Pancake

- Make pancake batter (I used an organic whole wheat mix)
- Add cooked bacon (diced up)
- Add grated apple

Make as usual. Eat. Die a little bit because it is SO good.

I had one, and I dipped it in pure maple syrup.

I went out for lunch with some friends to a place called The Free House. I had the 1/2 pizza/salad lunch combo (Mediterranean pizza, and spinach salad):

Later in the afternoon I made a fresh juice and read a book out on my deck. My juice contained 1/2 a golden dew melon, 5 strawberries, and 1 apple:

Dinner was a yellow curry with shrimp and veggies, served on 1/2 cup sticky rice:

I had a kids size mango frozen yogurt cone for dessert.

Time for bed - I have to get up at 4 a.m. tomorrow - I will blog tomorrow night from Calgary!

Have you ever added anything to your pancake mix?
Berries? Bananas? Apples? Bacon?

When I was younger my dad used to occasionally add corn to pancakes if we had leftover corn to use up - it was NASTY. If you are reading this dad - Corn pancakes taste like vomit. I still have nightmares about them. :-) Love you.

My Oma used to make pancakes with bacon all the time growing up. My Opa adored them. She also made cherry pancakes with sour cherries picked right off the tree in their yard. Sprinkle a little sugar over those babies when they are still warm.. perfection.

I was way more fond of her potato pancakes though - now those are killer.

That sounds like a pancake my husband would love. I really like apples in pancakes. I put diced ones right on top so they slightly sink in when I flip, then get all nice and crispy when heated. So good. Then again, so are classic blueberry pancakes.

Ok, I am SO making apple bacon pancakes for breakfast tomorrow! YUM! I always add fruit or chocolate chips to mine but never thought to add bacon.

I add apples or bananas or blueberries or chocolate chips. I usually add cinnamon and cloves or nutmeg. But I've never added bacon. It sounds like it would be good (I mean, doesn't bacon make everything taste good?)

I love adding chocolate chips and bananas to pancakes.

My babysitter used to add corn to pancakes and you're right, they are nasty. I used to dread corn pancake day.

Haha! I bet you will start a new trend with the bacon :)

I add fruit and always pump things up with flax, chia, or hemp seeds.

Hope you have a great trip!
