Bacon Strip Pancakes

bacon pancakes

So as I was going through my Stumble shares yesterday, and have I mentioned lately how much I am still in love with all things StumbleUpon? Anyway, I stumbled across this vintage ad from Bobcat9. This ad, from what I could find, was originally posted at

bacon and pancake batter

Obviously, I couldn’t stop myself from making these ASAP. I immediately, without hesitation, ran into the kitchen. I searched through the freezer in a frenzy to find some bacon, whipped up some pancake batter and got to work.

And I’m going to have to admit, this artery clogging treat was one of the best breakfast items I’ve had in a long time. Honestly, these things should be illegal.

Mine didn’t come out quite as golden brown as I would have liked, because I was afraid of burning the bacon I had so painstakingly cooked over just the right low heat, to get just the right crispiness. But honestly, once you taste the crispy salty bacon wrapped in a delicate pancake drenched in warm maple syrup, believe me, you won’t care what color they are.

    Oh, cool, they brought back old English “Bacon Froise”. What’s several hundred years old is suddenly new again. Cool!

  12. I too came across this ad on Stumble Upon! So glad you made them 🙂 They look delicious!

    We’ve had these exact same pancakes at Open City in DC for a few years. Really good bacon is the key.

    Wow, this looks awesome. Thanks for the great idea!

  16. facts please! — January 31, 2014 @ 2:30 pm

    Seriously?? Use your brain! Don’t make internet “facts” worse than they already are. Adventure time was not the first time this ad appeared. As far as I know, the show was not around in 1962…
