Saturday Breakfast: Mancakes

Aug 20, 2011

A while back, Josh came across this genius recipe for Mancakes.

Pancakes made with beer and caramelized bacon.

We love breakfast, bacon, and beer . . . and it would only make sense to combine them all into one delightful little concoction.
(Which just so happens to probably be the most healthy meal in America) 

Here's the actual recipe from Betty Crocker, but Josh came to visit this weekend and we added our own little twist . . .

Dogfish Head Festina Peche Beer

The first (and truthfully, the only step that matters) is the bacon.
The recipe calls for 8 strips, but who's really counting. 
We did a fewwww extra.
You know in case any come out a little funny looking. 

Heat the oven to 350, lay the strips out on a foil covered cookie sheet, bake for 10 minutes, flip the bacon, sprinkle with brown sugar, bake for 10 more minutes, flip, sprinkle, bake 10 more mins

. . . and voila.
Magical sugary heavenly crunchy bacon.
There's truly nothing better than that.
In the universe.

Charles was pretty pissed that he's a dog and can't eat human food.
. . . but we gave him some anyways.

Anyways, to make the batter you blend 2 eggs, 2 cups pancake mix, and 1 cup of beer.
Break the bacon up into small pieces and
then stir whatever you didn't eat during preparation . . . 

. . . into the batter.

Then just cook them like normal 'ol pancakes.

. . . and then stack them up so they look super awesome and professional and pretty for their picture.

. . . and then you have a realllllly happy boyfriend
