Last summer my husband and I traveled to Aruba for a family wedding. We spent most of your time in the water (we obviously got out of the water for the wedding) but we took one day to go explore the island. Somehow we ended up at a small Dutch pancake restaurant that I swear was calling my name. Normally I’m not a pancake fan but these pancakes were calling my name. They were super thin with crispy edges and could be filled with sweet or savory options.

Yeah, this was my kind of joint.

I ordered the bacon and apple pancake and fell in love. I went back two days later and ordered the same thing. I couldn’t get over the sweet apple mixed with the thickly sliced smoky bacon. It was a match made in heaven.

That is why when my sweet friend Nelly asked me if I wanted to join in on a pancake Stonyfield Cook-a-thon I couldn’t say no! I have been itchin’ to make my own bacon apple pancakes so that is exactly what I did! These babies are not as thin as the ones I had in Aruba but they are PACKED with apples and bacon and just a touch of apple pie spice. They are a perfect mix of sweet, salty and warm fall flavors.

You’re going to love these babies!

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.

[…] I made pancakes I got a more traditional route. Maybe add a little lemon zest, maybe throw in some bacon (oh yes!) or perhaps top them with some fresh figs. This is the first time I have taken pancakes […]
