Who loves the smell of bacon? We sure do! Bacon mixed with a little maple syrup? Oh yeah! Delicious! But maybe you enjoy a little more flair when it comes to syrup, why not try Buttermilk Syrup, I can show you how to make a delicious syrup step by step.

Such a fun and easy breakfast. So let me help you make this super simple breakfast with easy clean up. Are you ready?
How to Cook Bacon?
Bacon Pancake Dippers start with cooking bacon. I prefer to cook my bacon in the oven because, it's easy and it's easy to clean up. Plus the bacon tends to stay flat which I love. However you can also purchase precooked bacon at your local grocery store too.
When cooking bacon in the oven the grease is contained and the bacon doesn’t shrivel up. So for this recipe I prefer to cook my bacon in the oven.
We all have our favorite go to pancake mix which is great. But I might also suggest you try our favorite Fluffy Pancake recipe. It's pretty simple to make and the kids go wild over it.
Making Bacon Pancakes
Step 1: Once your bacon is cooked up and pancake mix ready to go, you will want to heat up your skillet. Set your temperature to a medium/high temperature and give it a couple of minutes. Don't forget to spray with cooking spray before you add your pancake mix or everything will stick. eek!
Step 2: When it’s sizzling hot, spray your pan with cooking spray and place 4 – ½ size pieces of bacon on the skillet and top with pancake mix. Allow it to cook until bubbles form on the pancakes and the bottoms are golden brown and then flip them over!
Step 3: Another minute or two on the other side should do it, remove pancake covered bacon to a serving plate and continue making more.
The Bacon Pancake Dippers are perfect for dipping into hot maple syrup and the combination of bacon and maple is wonderful.
