I saw this recipe pictured on Pinterest a while back but there was no source. It seemed like a good idea so I decided to give it a try anyway. It was a win!
Cook the bacon. I always cook mine in the oven on a slotted pan. Much easier than standing over it on the stovetop.
Prepare the pancake mix according to package directions. To make 36 mini muffins I prepared enough mix for 12-14 pancakes. I also added 1 tsp. of vanilla and 1 tsp. of cinnamon.
Spray the muffin tin well with non stick spray. Break each piece of bacon into fourths and put a piece into each of the mini muffins.
Using a small scooper or teaspoon add pancake mix to each muffin.
Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. They barely get golden brown. Don't worry-they are done.
I love how the bacon peeks out. Serve with syrup and enjoy.
