Bacon and maple syrup is a match made in heaven. It’s harder to think of a more iconic duo that that of maple syrup and bacon, especially in the food world. This combination has the perfect mix of sweet and salty, making every bite of this duo perfect and delicious.
Simply eating bacon and maple syrup is amazing and delicious, but you can do so much more than that. You can add one more breakfast component to this duo with pancakes, to serve as the perfect vessel and elevate this duo to an entire meal! This meal not only works for breakfasts, but also for a flavorful snack or lunch at any time! Who says pancakes are only a breakfast food?
The trick to these bites are to slather the bacon in maple syrup and bake it beforehand. This ensures that the maple syrup will soak into the bacon as it cooks, as well as providing a crunchy strip of bacon that will never be soggy in the pancake. In order to preserve the bacon in the pancake, it’s better to have a runny batter. While it sounds counter intuitive, this makes the batter cook faster, leaving less time for your bacon to get soggy inside the warm pancake!
