I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Corn and Bacon Pancakes

I made these savory pancakes last year on pancake day.
I won't wait that long to have them again. 

6 slices bacon
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
3 tbsps finely chopped green pepper
1 cup flour
1 tbsp dried chives
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3/4 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
1 cup niblets corn
2/3 cup milk
1 egg
1 tbsp vegetable oil
about 2 tbsps water to thin the batter

Brown bacon in frying pan then lay on a paper towel to drain. Remove most of the bacon grease from the pan then add the onion and green pepper. Lightly brown. Chop the bacon up and toss together with the fried onion and green pepper. Keep aside a couple tbsps  of this mixture for garnish.
Mix the flour, chives, baking powder, cayenne, paprika, salt and pepper together. Add the cheese, corn, milk, egg and oil. Fold in the bacon mixture. The batter is lumpy and kind of gross looking.
You may want to add a couple tbsps of water here.  It's up to you depending on how thick or thin you like your pancake batter.
Heat oil in a frying pan and pour batter in.
Cook on each side about 2 minutes until golden.
Serve with syrup garnished with reserved bacon mixture.

Makes 10 - 4" pancakes
I served them alongside Italian Scotch Eggs.  Get the recipe here:
