The Best Pancakes You Will Ever Have

March 27, 2010

My friend Alicia and I have had a wonderful day out in Boston. We went to the Institute of Contemporary Art and had coffee in Harvard Square. Now we are relaxing at home before a night out on the town. And this morning, we had the best breakfast ever.

In preparation for her trip, Alicia emailed me a recipe for Grilled Cheese and Chicken Sausage Waffles. They are probably the most amazing things I had ever heard of: gooey cheesy waffles with crumbles of sausage mixed into the batter. Unfortunately I don’t have a waffle iron (note to self: buy a waffle iron!) so I was determined that, by the time she arrived, I would have a pancake day version of her favorite brunch recipe.

This post could also have been titled “The Worst Pancakes For You Ever” but believe me, they are well worth the splurge.

Bacon and Cheddar Pancakes with Honey Mustard Sauce

1 serving of your favorite pancake mix (I used Gluten Free Pantry’s Pancake and Waffle mix)

1.5 cups grated cheddar cheese

6 slices of bacon

1/2 cup mustard

1/4 cup honey

Chop up the bacon into bite size pieces and fry until crispy. Dry on a paper towel.

Add to your favorite pancake mix the cheddar cheese and bacon, reserving some for topping. Make pancakes as usual.

Mix together the mustard and honey. Adjust the ratios to your liking (spicier vs. sweeter).

Top your pancakes with honey mustard and a sprinkle of cheese and bacon. Indulge.

Words cannot describe how amazing these are. The cheesy goodness oozes out of every bite, complimented by the smokey bacon. Alicia is the one who suggested honey mustard as a toppingΒ  and she was 1000% correct, it was unstoppable. In my mind, any combination of sweet and salty is absolute perfection. No matter what your diet is, or if you don’t even like pancakes (though who doesn’t!), take a morning and whip up a batch of these babies. You will be smiling for the rest of the day. And your house will smell like bacon, which is never a bad thing πŸ™‚

What is your favorite dish to splurge on?
