Eat Drink & Be Mary: Bacon Pancake Dippers


Bacon Pancake Dippers

Summer is nearing, school is coming to an end which can mean one of two things.

One. Your kids will no longer have somewhere to go for SIX hours of the day and you need activities to entertain them.  Saying goodbye to your peaceful or productive days...

Or Two. You have three solid months of freedom with nothing to do but soak up the sun with your toes in the sand.

But either way you're bound to love this recipe I'm sharing today.  Not only will your kids love it, but they'll have fun eating it too.  And it's super easy for you mommas to make, or if you're like me (and in option TWO)--a 22 year old, who is still a child at heart.

My goal for this recipe? an easy and fun meal.  Who doesn't love bacon --a question I apparently wonder a lot--and pancakes, and combining the two to make a finger food we can dip...sounds like a winner to me!

Plus with father's day coming up (both in less than 2 months; they'll be here before you know it) these will make for a fun breakfast-in-bed meal where the kids can get it on all the fun.  

So without further adieu... 

Bacon Pancake Dippers 
idea for the recipe came from Pinterest

What you need:
+ Bacon
+ Bisquick
+ Milk
+ Eggs
+ Syrup
+Cookie Sheet, Wire Rack & Tin Foil

What to do:

Cook the bacon.  I took a cookie sheet, covered it in tin foil, and placed a wire rack on top of the tin foil.  This just makes for an easier clean up, and the bacon doesn't sit in all that grease the entire time it's cooking.  I cooked the bacon in the oven for 20 minutes on 350.  You can cook the bacon in the microwave, but this was just an easier way for me to do it & an easier clean up.

Make the pancake mix.  I went for another easy route and simply made Bisquick pancakes, quick & easy is the goal right? I poured the mix into a measuring cup to help with pouring but a squeeze bottle would work well too.

Place the bacon in a pan, on low heat, pour pancake mix over them.  Flip like you would for normal pancakes (1-2 min.)

*Break the bacon in half (no longer than 4 inches) because unless you are a master flipper, your dippers will turn out looking like the picture below.  Hey you win some, you lose some.  But after my second attempt, with smaller bacon strips, I'd consider it a win.

Serve on plate, with syrup to dip in.  Thats it, it's that simple.

  1. Definitely making these!! I cook my bacon in the oven too but never thought about the wire rack! Genius!!

  2. I am def. the first situation with the kiddos :) But I am ready to have them home for summer. I have a feeling we will be making these bacon pancakes quite frequently too. I used to buy the ones with the sausage and pancakes on a stick for them and they LOVE those. SO I know these will be a hit and a lot cheaper too. Whoohoo!! Thanks

  3. I totally made those for Joe on Sunday, except he just slathered them in syrup :)

  4. Oh my goodness. This looks awesome. I will make them this weekend. My hubby will flip over these.

  5. As someone who always enjoyed dipping my bacon in the syrup that was left on my plate from my pancakes, this recipe sounds perfect for me!

  6. MMM this looks yummy. My daughter would loves these since they include two of her favorite breakfast dishes, pancakes and bacon.

  7. Bacon and pancakes can it get any better?! The answer is no!

  8. Yum! Anything with bacon is going to make me smile. Plus, I'm going to pass this on to my Mom. My Dad will be thrilled. :-)

  9. We've made these before and they're awesome!

    Thanks for sharing!

  10. My husband would love these! We also have tried dipping the uncooked bacon in pancake mix (the dry stuff) and cooking them. It gives the bacon a little extra crunch. Yum!! Thanks for posting!!

  11. I have been meaning to try these for so long. I think it's about time I do...I will be a rockstar at home!

  12. These look delish! Thanks for the tip about breaking the bacon in half. I would totally do the same thing! :)

  13. YUM. Bacon! Whether they look messy or not (referring to the picture with the large pieces of bacon) I know they must taste amazing. That's what most important, right? ;)
    I've never cooked bacon in the oven before. I love that it's so much cleaner (and less greasy)! Will have to make these soon. My kids are home every day (the life of a homeschool family) but these will be fun for us no matter what time of year it may be. :)
