Bacon pancakes

While reading a currently popular thriller recently, I read about bacon pancakes.  I was inspired.  Now before you say, "ewww, gross" or anything, ask yourself some important questions.  Do you eat breakfast sandwiches?  Do you like to dip bacon in maple syrup?  Do you like meat and bread together?  If the answer to any of these is yes, then this might be worth a try.

Simple plan: chop 3 slices of bacon into little pieces and fry until crispy.  Fold into you favorite pancake recipe or mix.  Cook and enjoy.

For those of you who have never made pancakes from scratch, may I suggest the following recipe which is delicious and worth the extra 3 minutes to make:

In a bowl, combine 1 cup of flour,  1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 Tblsp brown sugar (or white)

In another bowl, whisk 1 egg.  Drizzle in 2 tsp of melted butter while whisking.  Mix in 1 cup of buttermilk OR 1/2 cup sour cream or yogurt and 1/2 cup milk.

Combine the wet and dry and cook on a griddle.  This will make 8 small pancakes and can be doubled or tripled easily.
