Pancake BLT

Servings 2 Sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • Pinch Salt
  • 1/8 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/3 Cup Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tbsp Butter melted
  • 3-5 Tbsp Mayonnaise
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 6 Slices Bacon fully cooked
  • 6 Cherry Tomatoes halved
  • Lettuce if desired
  • 1/2 Large Avocado ripe, sliced as desired

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix milk, egg and vanilla extract.
  • Create a well in the center of the flour.
  • Pour milk mixture into this well.
  • Pour melted butter into well.
  • Whisk milk mixture, butter and flour mixture, starting from the center of the well and working outward. Batter will be slightly lumpy.
  • Heat lightly oiled skillet to medium.
  • Pour ¼ cup of batter onto pan and cook 1-2 minutes each side. Pancakes are ready to flip when edges slightly begin to bubble.
  • Repeat step 8 for all remaining batter.
  • For sandwiches, spread desired amount of mayonnaise on top of 2 pancakes and sprinkle with pepper. These will be the “bottoms”.
  • Cut each slice of bacon in half to allow for them to fit on the pancake.
  • Place 3 pieces of bacon on top of mayonnaise on the “bottoms”, for each sandwich.
  • Take remaining 3 bacon halves and weave into the 3 on the pancake.
  • On remaining 2 pancakes, spread mayonnaise as desired and sprinkle with pepper. These are your “tops”
  • Divide lettuce between the 2 “tops” , place on mayo.
  • Salt the inside of the tomato halves and set on top of the lettuce.
  • Garnish with avocado slices, if desired.
  • Place “tops” onto the “bottoms” to make a sandwich.

Notes

Of course, you can substitute the pancakes for some boxed pancakes. Reduce the recipe - or have extra pancakes!
When you pour the milk mixture and butter into the center of the well to make the pancake batter- you’ll start with small circles and gently whisk from the center and working outward.
I like to fully rinse off the bacon before cooking. It results in less shrinkage.
