Especially when you cook some bacon, crumble it up in the syrup, and have bacon syrup on top of them.

Has anyone invented that in bottle form yet? I smell a marketing opportunity.

I don't see any products for sale that are just bacon-infused maple syrup, but there are many Maple/Bacon recipes out there.

Yeah, my recipe for candied bacon calls for grade B maple syrup.

Just bake a bacon pancake and add syrup to that? Why cook the bacon separately?

I like embedding the bacon inside the pancake, but you have to cook the bacon first.

I had some maple flavored bacon a while back. It came raw, but it was really meaty (not crispy, not fatty, really thick slices, but ******* perfect), and the maple flavor wasn't over powering at all, it was a really beautiful thing that I haven't been able to find in recent years.

And bacon+maple syrup is delicious.

I prefer it on waffles over pancakes, though.

I think Oscar Mayer sells it. It's always in stock at the local super market when I go there. I accidentally purchased it a couple times. It smells kind of strange when you first start heating it up, but after about 30 seconds it just smells like maple syrup. It's not a very overpowering smell/taste, but it's noticeable when cooking.

I just get the normal stuff though, I think there are 20 calories more per slice in the maple flavored one.

Blueberry pancakes are the ultimate form of pancakes. The trick is to make them from frozen blueberries. fresh ones tend to overcook.

Ugly's right, it's a terrible mix. Frankly, this meme is really starting to wear on me.

Kind of like the whole zombie thing, I guess, though it's proving even more tenacious than the undead. It's an interesting phenomenon, really; by unspoken agreement, unfunny ********* everywhere declare something wacky and hilarious per se, and agree to laugh whenever someone references it in any way whatsoever. Long, humourless circle jerks follow.

I imagine this post will go down about as well as a bacon pancake.

For pancakes, sausage is the best. I prefer this type of sausage link, but they are hard to find for home use. I found a few, but they aren't as good as ones you get in a restaurant. I don't care for these ones when I want them with pancakes, the texture just doesn't work. The first one I linked just seems to work so much better when dipping in the excess syrup from the pancakes.

Are you talking real bacon, or canadian baconham? Real bacon, meme or not, goes well with just about any breakfast food, except maybe cold cereal, though it depends heavily on the type of cereal, in general, I would say chocolatey kids' cereals are out. I've never found chocolate and bacon to mix well.

Did I say ham? No, must be talking about bacon then. Back bacon actually goes well with pancakes. Regular bacon does not.

you crazy west coasters. Bacon goes perfect with pancakes. Whenever I got out for breakfast its 3 eggs 2 cakes 2 mini sausages and 2 strips of bacon, all for 8.99. Also included 1 glass of OJ.

If I am home making breakfast it is 1LB of bacon.

If you consider that he's referring to going out to eat, many places serve their pancakes on completely separate plates from everything else. That being the case, getting syrup on your bacon(as per your earlier issue with pairing the two in the first place) would be much less of a surety.

I'm sorry, I guess I didn't explain completely. The maple syrup on my bacon is a separate issue. I simply do not like bacon with my pancakes. Pancakes require sausage.


And I assumed he was eating out. I've seen him post when he's stoned, and there's no way he could operate a kitchen while stoned, so he'd have to go out to eat all of that. That being said, I've also never seen a restaurant where the pancakes are on a separate plate. Most like to pile it all on top of itself, to make the meal look larger.

Almost everywhere I go that serves pancakes(aside from fast food) gives them a separate plate. Probably one of those cultural things where people who live where you don't are weird.

I think they both try to make the meal look bigger by serving everything on 3-4 small plates, actually.

I had pancakes with bacon for breakfast yesterday.

I love sourdough pancakes - do any of you have a sourdough culture and use it to make pancakes? It is divine. I haven't had a non-sourdough pancake ever since I started making them with the live culture.

Supposedly you can coat a plate with butter, pour pancake batter on it, then microwave it for an unspecified amount of time, and it will result in a pancake! I intend to try this experement at work tomorrow.

Not really. No one's talking about the quality of the pancakes, merely the way they are arranged on plates. Sure, Walmart may not have the pinnacle of fashion, but to say that their clothing gets hung on racks as an example of how retailers display clothing within a large section of the market is a valid point.

Smiley: lol Wal-Mart also likes to hang clothes, packaged in plastic.
You know, I've never once noticed that at a Walmart ever, unless you're talking underwear, socks and t-shirts. And if so, they're undergarments. Meh.

Are you really trying to defend IHOP?
How am I defending IHOP? I never said their food was great. I'm saying that the ******* sell a ******** of pancakes, so they're a sizable enough portion to say that a good percentage of pancakes sold in restaurants come on separate plates from the eggs and meats.

Mostly I'm just arguing to kill time before the work day ends and I can go home. Lobby is freaking empty right now. Smiley: tongue


*700 million pancakes a year, if a quick Google search can be believed.

By that logic, we can say most hamburgers taste like **** since Mcdonald's sells the most. Technically correct, but pretty much irrelevant.

By that logic, we can say most hamburgers taste like sh*t since Mcdonald's sells the most. Technically correct, but pretty much irrelevant.
If the whole argument was that the majority of fast food hamburgers sold taste like ****, then it's not irrelevant at all.

And since the IHOP comment:
Quote:
IHOP here always serves pancakes on a separate plate. So does Waffle House.

I think they both try to make the meal look bigger by serving everything on 3-4 small plates, actually.

Was made in response to a small discussion following:
Quote:
If you consider that he's referring to going out to eat, many places serve their pancakes on completely separate plates from everything else. That being the case, getting syrup on your bacon(as per your earlier issue with pairing the two in the first place) would be much less of a surety.
It follows that IHOP's pancake sales volume is kinda relevant to that argument. Sure, said argument is tangential at best, but in the context of that argument, that point is kinda valid.

I don't understand why anyone would order pancakes at a restaurant. They're the cheapest easiest things in the world to make at home.
