Wednesday was National Pancake Day…how great is that?! In honor of it, I invented a pancake recipe of my own. Something a little heartier, a little sassier, a little more…perhaps…ridiculous…than standard hotcakes. Some might say it reminds them of a burger from a certain West Coast fast food chain. Some might say it reminds them of a gluttonous nightmare. Most of you are going to say it’s a perfect way to celebrate this tasty holiday.
Western Bacon Cheeseburger Pancakes
prepared pancake batter (enough for about 6 pancakes)
4 strips bacon, chopped
1/3 lb. ground beef
2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2/3 cup French fried onions, plus more for garnishing
sesame seeds for garnishing
1 tbsp. grill or bbq seasoning
bbq sauce to serve
These are a gluttonous fat kid delight. The pancakes are fluffy and savory. Crispy bacon, juicy spiced beef, gooey cheese, those delightfully salty fried onions…who wouldn’t like this?! Be sure to use a good quality bbq sauce here, because it really brings the pancake-burger hybrid together. This is insanely and guiltily tasty. Try it and you will be hooked.
