What's for dinner tonight? It HAS to be breakfast since I forgot to plan a meal and did not grocery shop today. My girls like breakfast any time of day, so it was a special treat for them. I cooked a lot this week and enjoyed making a simple meal. My girls cleaned their plates. Taylor even licked her clean...yuck! My girls can't wait to spend the night at their Mimi and Dandad's house next weekend. They always get treated to IHOP on Sunday morning. Maybe next week I will make a quiche for dinner one evening...the possibilities are endless.
8 pieces of thick slice bacon
Maple or regular pancake syrup
2 apples, diced small (I used Granny Smith)
dash of cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
1 T brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 cup Hungry Jack Buttermilk Complete pancake mix
3/4 cup water
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lay bacon on foil lined baking sheet. Lightly drizzle syrup over bacon (just a little bit). Bake for 15 minutes, or until crispy.
In a small pan, add diced apples, dash of cinnamon, dash of nutmeg, 1 T brown sugar, and 1/4 cup water. Simmer on low until apples are tender, about 10 minutes.
In a bowl, add pancake mix, water, and cinnamon. Stir until combined. Heat a large skillet or griddle on medium low heat. Cook pancakes until golden brown.
Top pancakes with cinnamon apple mixture and syrup. Enjoy with your maple bacon!
