  • 8 slices thick cut bacon, cut in half
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/3 cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Maple Syrup for dipping


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Line a baking pan with foil.
  3. Place a cooling rack on top of the pan.
  4. Line the bacon on top of the rack and bake for 17-20 minutes or until the bacon is just golden. It will crisp up even more once removed from the oven.
  5. While the bacon is cooking, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda and baking powder.
  6. In a separate, large bowl mix together the buttermilk, egg and vanilla until well combined.
  7. While whisking the egg mixture, slowly pour in the melted butter.
  8. Pour this over the dry ingredients and mix just until just a few lumps remain. You don’t want to over beat this.
  9. Set aside and allow to rest for at least 15-20 minutes.
  10. Heat a griddle pan over medium heat.
  11. Lightly spray with cooking spray (or can use butter.
  12. Pour your batter into a squeeze bottle with a large opening (or can you use a cup with a pour spout).
  13. Squeeze out the batter to a long oval to where it’s just a little bit longer and wider than the strips of bacon.
  14. Lightly press the cooked bacon in the center.
  15. Squeeze out a little more batter on top of the bacon. Don’t worry about not covering it all.
  16. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until bubbles start to form and the bottom becomes golden brown.
  17. Using a large spatula, flip and cook for another 3-5 minutes or until cooked through.
  18. Serve with warm maple syrup.


To make these for On-The-Go Breakfasts, simply stack a few in some wax paper and put some warm maple syrup in a lidded 2 ounce plastic cup. You can eat these while on your way to work or give them to your kids while you’re driving them to practice!
