"For roughly the last 8 mo, we've been enjoying the wonders of Costco shopping. 1 of my most recent happy finds was Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix (an add water & you're good-to-go kitchen miracle). As my profile intro says, I'm not a food snob & I favor convenience foods that save me time & let me be creative. This is a Krusteaz website recipe, the 1st in a series of their recipes I'll be sharing w/you. Some will be modified from the original Krusteaz product used, but if modified ... They will be made & photographed (prior to publication) to be certain they work well & are worthy of your choice to try them. ENJOY!"

Step 1

Stir pancake mix & water together w/a whisk. Batter will be slightly lumpy. Do not over-mix.

Step 2

Place cooked bacon strips onto a lightly greased & preheated griddle or large spray-coated non-stick fry pan. Pour pancake batter carefully in a rectangular shape to cover each slice of bacon. This is likely best done in 2 batches (I spooned it on w/a tbsp & spread the batter evenly w/it).

Step 3

Cook pancakes 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 min on each side (or until golden brown), turning only once. Serve w/maple syrup at room temp or warmed (They were pictured w/scrambled eggs & 3 dippers on the plate).

Step 4

NOTES FROM ME: If your bacon strips are lrg or thick-sliced, it will work best to halve them for this recipe. The yield was shown as 8 pancake dippers = 8 servings (too few IMO). It's a bit like Lay's Potato Chips ... I know -0- adults & few kids who could eat just 1 of these dippers. On the other hand, 3 as shown on the recipe is too many IMO. So I settled on 2 per serving. As an alternative to maple syrup, the dippers can also be used like toast w/basted, soft-boiled or creamy scrambled eggs = Your choice to make. :-)

I loved the idea of this recipe. I couldn't find the pancake mix at our Costco. So I made buttermilk pancakes and continued with your recipe. It made wonderful large pancakes with bacon slices on both sides. We love our bacon. Drizzled with Maple Syrup. It doesn't get any better than this. Thanks so much for sharing Twisted...
