A Cooking Tip (Don't Expect Many of These)

There are ideas so self-evidently right that merely naming them proves their rightness. For example:

We had some for lunch today after church, preparing them pretty much as in the picture  (although, being Texans, we chose Jimmy Dean thick-cut instead of Rath). We kept a small amount of the fat from frying the bacon strips to grease the griddle for the pancakes (which never hurts). And we ate them with pancake syrup.

They were indescribably good. In the words of the old hymn, "All glory, lard, and honor...."

  1. Just to let you know, your blog has changed someone's life - or many someone's. We started school today with a new tradition - Bacon Pancakes! We tried some with chocolate chips, which I would not suggest. Stick with the maple syrup. The kids thought it was great that they got breakfast meat to start the school year with & fun that the bacon didn't get cold while waiting for the pancakes to cook. Thanks for the post!
