Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk, full fat
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • additional unsalted butter or high heat vegetable oil for cooking
  • 10 strips thick sliced bacon
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped green onions
  • greek yogurt for topping, optional
  • maple syrup, to drizzle on top
Instructions
  1. Cook bacon until desired crispiness, I like mine pretty crispy. Break up into small pieces. Cut up green onions and set both a side.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk eggs. Whisk in buttermilk and melted butter. Stir flour mixture into buttermilk mixture until just combined (lumps are OK).

  4. Heat the oven to 200°F and place an oven-safe plate or baking dish inside. Heat a large, nonstick skillet on the stove top over medium heat. Melt 1/4 teaspoon of butter on skillet. Dollop 1/2 cup batter onto skillet; depending on the size of the skillet, it may fit 2-3 pancakes. Add bacon and green onions. Cook pancakes until bubbles rise to the surface and pop, about 2 minutes. Carefully flip pancakes and cook another 2 minutes.

  5. Transfer cooked pancakes to plate in the oven to keep them warm. Cover with foil. Repeat with more butter and remaining batter, until all pancakes are cooked.

  6. Add a dollop of greek yogurt if desired, sprinkle with extra bacon and green onions. Drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy!
