Here’s what geeks do on their, “Day off.” #brunch
If you want to know the recipe for these delicious turkey bacon pancakes, here you go.
Starting with the first picture, I’ve pre-cooked the bacon. The pancake batter is simple, if you want to make the same kind as I do, use the following for the recipe:
- Grab two bowls, one larger than the other
- In one bowl, mix dry ingredients:
- Two cups flour
- Three tablespoons sugar
- Two teaspoons baking powder
- In the wet bowl, mix:
- Two eggs
- First remove shells, etc – keep it real and clean people.
- One and three quarters cup milk;
- You can use more, but the batter should be thick, not too runny but also able to “relax,” into it’s own shape. Anywhere between one and three quarters and a full two cups is fine for the batter, depending on how fluffy you like the pancakes.
- Combine the wet ingredients into the dry; beat them together until they form a nice, even consistency and all the dry has been thoroughly mixed.
- Heat a cast iron skillet for best results over four or medium heat; then turn down gradually as you make the pancakes once the skillet becomes hot.
- Dollop one pat of butter – use judgement – per pancake.
- Heat on one side, topping with the turkey bacon – chopped. Use a small sprinkling, or more, per each pancake. For one batch, I would recommend a full six pieces of bacon.
- After heating on one side, you’ll see bubbles. Those are good, flip once only, and make sure the edges have become a nice, crispy golden brown.
- When the second half becomes as done as the first, remove to a heated platter to keep warm until you finish making the batch.
- Top with real Canadian or other 100% maple syrup, ideally warmed.
- Once smothered, best enjoyed hot, with a side of coffee and orange juice.
And that, my friends, is how a geek does brunch. Being able to enjoy good food is one thing, being able to share it with friends, family and most especially my children who are so far away during the holiday season? Priceless. Jaz, Sam – this one’s for you guys. Love you.
