Sweet + Salty Bacon Pancakes



This is not exactly the "healthiest" breakfast to kick off the new year, but that's what the fruit is for!  ;)  I had bacon waffles a couple years ago and thought the salty bacon with the sweet pancake and syrup was pure perfection.  Now, we don't have a waffle maker, so we decided to whip up some pancakes instead...and they were just as good, promise!

The key to this recipe is to make some super crispy bacon bits.  We used thick-cut pepper bacon and cooked it in its own oil until super crispy.  


From there, make your pancakes {we used the Krusteaz brand} and add bacon right before flipping.  You know it's ready to flip because the batter bubbles up.


Enjoy with some fresh fruit and a latte {preferably from your new Nespresso machine!} and you're all set!

Hope you enjoy!
