Who doesn't love a good stack of pancakes in the morning with a side of bacon all doused in maple syrup? Get ready to love pancakes and bacon even more when you combine the two for a deliciously sweet and salty breakfast treat that will bring something different to your plate in the morning. If you haven't gone to brunch lately one of our favorite foodie fads may be passing you by -- that is, bacon-bit-infused pancake batter. This recipe does the same thing, but instead of bacon bits, we've thrown the whole strip of bacon inside the batter for a pancake "pop" of sorts this is both a fun and delicious way to eat your most important meal of the day!

Cooking Time - Text2 minutes per side


  • 2 cups pancake mix (such as Bisquick)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 5 slices bacon, cut in half, cooked and drained
  • butter


  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.

  2. Prepare pancake batter according to package directions, using buttermilk and adding 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Transfer batter to a squeeze-type container for dispensing (such as an old, well-cleaned ketchup bottle)

  3. Spread a small amount of butter in the bottom of the preheated skillet. Dispense a small amount of batter, press a half a piece of bacon into the batter and cover with more batter.  

  4. Cook 2 minutes, until the bubbles forming along the edges of the pack cake “pop” and the underside is lightly golden brown.

  5. Gently flip your pancake and cook an additional 2 minutes.

  6. Serve with warm syrup for dipping.

l love breakfast or brunch type treats like this one, especially when we are headed off on a road trip or sometimes just because I feel like making them, lol. Because the bacon is hidden inside the pancake mix it is such a lovely taste surprise when you bite into it and with the warm syrup these are quite delicious!

I have to make these soon. Everything about this Bacon Pancake Dippers recipe absolutely intrigues me. I love the concept of the bacon being inside the pancake, and I am absolutely thrilled by the idea of squeezing the batter onto the frying pan. How great is that. I have never been successful at making pancakes, but I think these will be my first triumph.

These are cute! I can't wait to try these out the next time we have a visit from our granddaughter. She loves pancakes and bacon and these will be a real treat for her. It's worth having a package or two of the pre-cooked bacon on hand to make this up in a jiffy when the mood strikes. I can see serving these as an appetizer, and not just for breakfast.

This is a perfect make ahead breakfast and I'm guessing it would keep well in the fridge for a few days at least, just in case you don't have a lot of time to cook in the morning. Crumbled bacon directly into the batter would make this really easy and less messy too. You can probably even substitute sausage in this recipe as well if you're a sausage lover like me.

I like the surprise inside factor with the whole strip of bacon in the pancake. I don't think I've ever met someone who doesn't love a great batch of pancakes with bacon on the side! My son is going to absolutely love these pancakes. What a great way to start the day, thanks for the video!

Oooh those look good. And so easy! I love these Quick Bites videos!!
