Nutty Bacon Banana Pancakes
Recipe type: Breakfast
  • Krusteaz Buttermilk Protein Pancake mix
  • Bacon – 1 slice per pancake + 2 slices for crumble topping
  • Bananas, 1-2 depending on the number of pancakes
  • Pecan bits – if desired
  • Maple Syrup – or use your favorite
  1. In a large skillet, or on a griddle, cook bacon over medium-high heat.
  2. Drain bacon on paper towels, reserving 2 slices to use as crumbles for the topping.
  3. Pour off all but 1 teaspoon of bacon grease from skillet or griddle. Reserve in a cup or bowl for cooking the pancakes.
  4. Heat skillet, or griddle, to 375 degrees (medium-high heat).
  5. Measure mix by lightly spooning into measuring cup and then leveling off. (Use box instructions for amounts of mix and water).
  6. Add water according to instruction on box and whisk. Do not overmix.
  7. Using a measuring cup or dipper, pour ¼-cupfuls batter into skillet and top each pancake with a slice of bacon. Cook until bubbles appear on top of pancakes and you see a few have burst, about 2 minutes.
  8. Using a spatula, carefully flip the pancakes and continue cooking until browned – about 2 minutes.
  9. Remove from skillet onto a platter, bacon side up. Cover loosely with foil and place in oven to keep pancakes warm.
  10. Continue making your pancakes with the remaining batter, adding more bacon fat if needed.
  11. Top with banana slices and bacon crumbles.
  12. Serve with maple or your favorite syrup.
  13. Enjoy!
