Pancake Wrapped Bacon Strips

Pin It
Happy Valentine's Day loves! I'm secretly hoping you all have super romantic plans for this evening. Yes? Well, I'm sure all the arrangements have been made for tonight, but if you need some ideas for tomorrow morning, I've got you covered. 
During one of my many battles with Pinterest, I saw a picture of pancake wrapped bacon floating around. I didn't pin it, but I kept it in the back of my head for future reference. This past weekend I decided to try to replicate that sinful image. Bacon alone is good. Pancakes alone are good. Combined? It's everything you want them to be and more. Your sweetie will definitely appreciate them after a fun Valentine's Day evening. Have a wonderful night! xoxo

Printable Recipe

  • 8 strips thick-cut bacon strips
  • 2 tbsp. butter
For pancakes:
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups low-fat buttermilk
  • 4 tbsp. butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Cook bacon until crispy. Set aside on a paper towel-lined plate.

Prepare pancake batter. In a large bowl beat eggs. Add buttermilk, butter and vanilla and mix well. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well until mostly smooth.

Heat a griddle over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp. butter and allow to melt. Spread 2-3 tbsp. of batter across the griddle so it is the same length as a piece of bacon. Place bacon on top of the batter and cover with an additional 2-3 tbsp. of pancake batter. Repeat with remaining batter and bacon strips.

Cook for 2-3 minutes or until bottom is lightly brown. Use a spatula to turn pancake over. Cook on the other side for an additional 2-3 minutes.

Serve immediately with syrup.

  1. Okay, this is a must try as well. We love bacon, though we only have it occasionally. We have pancakes almost every week for Breakfast for Dinner on Thursday. This would be a wonderful way to change it up!
    If you happen to stop by Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen I would love for you to link this one up too. You have so many wonderful recipes!

  2. I need to try this!! Thanks so much for linking up to the Friday Frenzy. I just shared it on my FB page.

  3. I will be trying this this weekend!!! Looks delicious and creative.

  4. Thanks for the recipe! Sorry to be picky, but I believe there is a typo in the directions: it says "Spread 2-3 tbsp. of BUTTER across the griddle so it is the same length as a piece of bacon." but I think you mean BATTER :)

  5. Do you need to pour batter on each side of the bacon? Or are we assuming that the batter somehow "sneaks" underneath the bacon? Or do we pour the batter before laying the bacon down? Or is there a typo and where it says "spread 2-3 Tbsp. of butter across the griddle so it is the same length as a piece of bacon"? Is it supposed to tell us to spread 2-3 Tbsp. of BATTER instead?

    1. Yes, it was supposed to read "batter." The typo has been fixed. Sorry for the confusion!

  6. Why not crumble bacon and mix it right in the batter?

    1. You definitely could! But what's the fun in that :)

  7. Where it reads, "Spread 2-3 tbsp. of butter across the griddle so it is the same length as a piece of bacon." should it be batter instead of butter? Plan to make these for next Sunday brunch.

    1. Hi! Yes, sorry for the typo. It should read to spread batter across the griddle, not butter. I'll change it!!


Please leave me some love! Thanks for stopping by :)
