Recipe ~ Bacon wrapped scrambled egg pancake cups

Hello, dear friends!

I love making a special breakfast on Saturday mornings to celebrate my husband being home to have breakfast with us. I figure after a long week of work he deserves a little something tastier than a granola bar as he's running out the door. This recipe is amazing!
I changed up the recipe from Kirbie at Kirbiecravings.com. You can see that original post here.

Mmm...bacon!


I always bake bacon instead of frying it on the stove or a griddle or cooking it in the microwave. It's a lot less of a mess. I highly recommend it! I baked a whole package of bacon at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes (I crumbled the rest and am saving it for another recipe). 


While the bacon was baking, I made up half a batch of pancake mix. When the bacon was done I let it cool on a plate with paper towel to sop up the grease. 

I put a thin layer of the pancake batter into 6 heavily greased muffin tins and baked them for 4 minutes.


I scrambled 5 eggs, I could have probably just used 4 eggs. Add a bit of milk, salt, and pepper and you're all set. Don't cook the eggs all the way. You want them to bake the rest of the way in the oven once assembled.


I wrapped 1 piece of bacon around each pancake, pressing the bacon into the gooey batter. Be careful, the pan is hot! Then, I spooned in the scrambled eggs. Lastly, I sprinkled a hand full of shredded cheddar cheese on top.


Bake the egg cups for 8 minutes and you're done!



Just look at that bacon! Everything is truly better with bacon. Not better for you, just better tasting! 


I poured a little bit of 100% pure maple syrup over my second egg cup. Amazing! I am not normally the kind of person that likes different foods (mostly breakfast foods) touching. I always eat pancakes and syrup on a separate plate so I was pretty surprised to find that I liked all of this together. It's not for everyone but I loved it!

For the eggs -
4 eggs
A dash of milk

Scramble your egg mixture and pour into a greased frying pan. Cook until eggs are almost done.

Shred about 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup of cheese

To assemble the egg cups -

Take 1 piece of bacon and wrap around each pancake, spoon scrambled eggs over the pancake, sprinkle cheese on top and  bake at 375 for 8 minutes.

Serve with pure maple syrup and fresh fruit on the side.

* Just a note ~ I had a little bit of pancake batter left over so I baked 4 more muffins and refrigerated them. I'm going to warm them up tomorrow with a little syrup. Yummo!

These look really GOOD, and it's an interesting recipe
Unfortunately we cannot eat bacon (it's forbidden for us - religiously)
