Wow wow wow! I changed up dinner for breakfast with these savory pancakes. I've had Lori's recipe pinned forever now and finally made them. Bacon, onions, corn and cheese in your favorite pancake batter with sweet maple syrup. The flavors are wonderful in these, except they did not care for the corn, next time no corn lol. I loved them. (for more gorgeous pics of these, check out Lori's post)
Savory Bacon & Corn Pancakes
adapted from Recipe Girl
1 lb bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 small finely chopped sweet vidalia onion
1 1/2 c flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1 1/2 c milk or buttermilk, warmed slightly
1 egg, room temp
3 Tbls butter, melted
1-2 cups frozen corn, thawed
1-2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Warm maple syrup, for serving
In a medium skillet, cook the bacon pieces until they begin to brown. Add the onion and continue to cook until the bacon is crisp and the onion is softened. Scoop out a heaping tablespoon of the bacon mixture for topping the griddle cakes upon serving- and set it aside.
While the bacon is cooking, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cayenne, chives in a medium bowl. Stir in the milk, egg and butter, just until moistened. Stir in the bacon mixture, corn and cheese. The mixture will be thick. If you'd like the griddle cakes to be slightly thinner, add a little more milk to thin out the batter.
(I used a batch of my gluten free pancake mix (omitted sugar & chocolate chips) and added some of the corn and bacon mix to it)
Heat and grease a griddle or large skillet. Pour a heaping 1/4-cup of the batter onto the griddle and cook until it is golden brown- 3 to 4 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Serve stacks of griddle cakes topped with a sprinkle of the reserved bacon/onion and warm maple syrup.
I did freeze leftovers, then heated them back up in the hot oven.
Mmm, bacon & onion mixture
Pancakes for them (on my large griddle)
Gluten free pancakes for me (in my small skillet)
A couple of months ago I was able to attend a Foster Farms Chicken Cook Off and San Diego's very own Recipe Girl's Lori was there to help judge.
