Have you ever wanted to add beer to breakfast? Give these Bacon Beer Pancakes a try, and you'll not only have beer, but also bacon in your breakfast!
These bacon beer pancakes are simple and straightforward, and they also only need kitchen staples. The only thing I didn't have on hand was the beer. (If you don't have beer, feel free to sub in water. Bacon pancakes are super tasty too!) I'm not a huge fan of beer (with the exception of Lambics), and around here, you not only have to get your beer from a distributor, but you also have to buy a whole case at a time. It's just not worth the trouble to me. But, we got a bottle of beer from one of James' classmates, so I figured we'd have it for breakfast along with a bit of bacon. :)
Pancakes are pretty much cross cultural and the beer (and bacon) adds flavor. Plus, beer enjoys its place as the world's third most popular drink, right after water and tea. The carbonation in beer yields a lighter and fluffier pancake, and if you use a "live" beer, the yeast also imparts its own flavor and lightness.
