With just a few ingredients and some simple steps, you’ll soon learn how to make this delicious recipe – and your family and friends won’t be able to get enough of it.
The cheesy bacon pancake pie is surprisingly simple to make, even for novice home cooks. The main components are pancake batter, bacon and cheese, so there’s no crazy ingredients or techniques needed. Not only is it delicious, but it’s also a great twist on traditional breakfast staples.
The preparation for this dish is fairly straightforward. The only thing you’ll need to do before you start is to get the bacon and cheese ready. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, prepare the bacon either in a skillet or in the oven. You’ll want it nice and crispy, but not too done.
The next step is to grease your baking or pie dish. You can use butter or non-stick spray for this. Once the dish is greased, spread your bacon on the bottom of the dish. Be sure that it’s evenly spread out and that all the pieces are touching. Then, sprinkle the cheese on top of the bacon.
Now it’s time to make the pancake batter. In a medium bowl, mix 1 ¼ cup of all-purpose flour, ¼ teaspoon of baking soda, 2 tablespoons of sugar and a pinch of salt together. In a separate bowl, whisk together one egg, 1 cup of buttermilk, 1 tablespoon of butter or vegetable oil and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
When the wet ingredients have been mixed, pour them into the dry ingredients and mix them together until they’re mostly combined. Then, pour the batter over the bacon and cheese in the dish. Spread it evenly over the cheese and bacon, being sure to cover the entire dish.
Bake the cheesy bacon pancake pie for about 20-25 minutes. When it’s done cooking, a toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean. If the toothpick is wet or sticky, it needs more time to cook.
When the cheesy bacon pancake pie is ready to be served, let it sit for a few minutes to cool down. Then, slice it into four or eight pieces and top with a sprinkling of extra cheese and bacon, if desired. It goes well with a drizzle of syrup or honey, and some butter.
This delicious cheesy bacon pancake pie is the perfect dish to make for breakfast or brunch. It’s cheesy and savory with a little bit of sweetness – the perfect mix of flavors. Plus, the bacon and cheese provide a nice crunch that takes this dish to the next level. Give this recipe a try and you won’t be disappointed!
