If there is one thing I love it’s the combination of sweet and salty!

That’s why these bacon pancakes with apples are the perfect addition to your breakfast, brunch, or even dinner table!

I first had this combination (bacon and apples) at a fun little Dutch Pancake restaurant in Aruba.

We went there for breakfast one morning and went back 3 more times before we left. I kept getting the apple bacon pancakes because they were literally that great.

Trust me, if you love tart sweet apples combined with salty bacon this is the pancake recipe for you!

Looks awesome... went looking for new breakfast ideas. Love this one. I have done bacon inside waffles before but not inside pancakes. Can't wait to try it.
