Bisquick Bacon Cheddar Pancake Bites

Whoever came up with pancake bites is a genius. I don’t know about you, but I feel I can eat more of these without the guilt because they are smaller! Too bad that isn’t true. I enjoy the fact that these recipes are quite easy to prepare and taste amazing. I’m not aware of any history found on bacon cheddar pancake bites, other than we basically prepare them with a typical pancake batter, and of course, bacon and cheddar are added. Some people prefer to cook them like a regular pancake on a skillet, while other recipes call for baking them as you would a muffin. Either way, they are delicious.

Bacon Cheddar Pancake Bites

Bacon Cheddar Pancake Bites

I don’t know what it is about bacon. I swear you could add it to the worst recipe, and it would end up tasting awesome. We usually have bacon two or three times a month, usually at breakfast. I don’t always prepare the bacon for the pancake bites. Lately, I’ve been cheating by purchasing the bags of already cooked and crumbled bacon, but hey, no one here needs to know. If you want to add more flavor, sprinkle some green onions on the top of each pancake bite and serve with a small dollop of sour cream.
