Monday

Inspired by Pinterest - Bacon Pancake-y Things

I'm going to try at least one of the amazing projects that I've pinned on Pinterest and share my attempt each Monday. (Even if the outcome is embarrassing. Like this one.)

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos 
I pinned these yummy looking bacon pancakes from Mr. Breakfast.

Bacon cooking.  Seriously, I don't have a griddle.  Isn't that the saddest thing you've ever heard? 



  The instructions were to make the batter with less liquid than normal to keep the batter from running.  Maybe the Wheat & Honey mix had something to do with it, but the batter seemed too thick.


Okay, these are seriously not pretty.

{And then I started to remember my recent introduction to Brunch from My Drunk Kitchen.  I swear my coffee was straight, but once I started giggling, I couldn't stop.  I'm laughing now.  Just Google it.  I take no responsibility for how hard you laugh.  No kids in the room though.}


Anyway, everyone thought they tasted good, but given a decent amount of syrup, doesn't EVERYTHING?  

Honestly, when I cut into one, the bacon fell away from the pancake anyway, so why not just cook pancakes and bacon separately and then put them together at the end?  Mystery solved.

So, what have we learned today? 1) Clearly, Martha has nothing to fear from me and 2) sometimes the simplest method is best, at least at my house!

Have you tried these?  Was your outcome better (or at least prettier) than mine?
