…is by getting to eat your bacon!
I went to IHOP the other night with my niece (Codename: Bacon Monster). Whenever Bacon Monster saw bacon on someone’s plate, she immediately stood up in her booster seat, grabbed it, and gleefully chomped on the bacon. This reminded me of a food program I saw that featured cooked whole strips of bacon encased in pancakes. It made me think that had my bacon at IHOP been “camouflaged” in my pancakes, it would have lasted long enough for me to eat and safe from my wily niece! So, I decided to make some, just to try it out.
These bacon pancakes turned out pretty tasty! They may not be the prettiest looking things, but their taste far exceeds their looks. For my version, I sliced strips of cooked bacon and sprinkled the bits over pancake batter that’s been ladled on the griddle. Or, you can go the television route by leaving whole cooked strips of bacon on the griddle, ladling pancake batter over the strips, and cook as normal.
On a different note, Bacon Monster’s mom (who is also Chunklet’s mom) went on a fun Kawaii shopping spree again and bought me cute Japanese items for my kitchen! I can’t wait to make udon soup to eat from my bowls and to clip something closed with my elephant and sheep clips!
