Bacon, Eggs, and Burger Pancakes
My brother texted some pictures of his niece making some crazy, fun pancakes. She had bacon and eggs, a burger, and a rainbow with a tree by it. I knew I'd have fun recreating it for the blog, and I really did! I like getting artsy in the kitchen sometimes.
Quick tip on healthy pancakes
Unless I'm making specialty pancakes, like the Yam pancakes, I use our Master Pancake mix! This mix is cheaper and healthier than a commercial pancake mix. Then you can add any mix-ins you have in your pantry. Things I've added to our pancake mix include:
- Flax meal
- Corn meal
- 7 grain hot cereal
- Wheat germ
- Rice cereal
- chocolate chips
- peanut butter
Then I divided up the mix, and added some food coloring. You can also use natural colors of course from berries, beets, spinach, etc. Then with a squirt bottle, we made a hamburger, french fries (with cheese and ketchup on top), and bacon and eggs! These pancakes aren't just for the little guys. My 12 year old probably liked them them most! LOL
What pancake mix-ins do you use?
