"Finally a pancake mix, fit for a real Bacon Freak!"
These were the magical words to get my purchase. This crazy creation is the from BaconFreak.com. It sound just too good to be true. Well it was! The pancake mix comes in two packets. There is the dry mix and a foil sealed bacon bits package. The instructions are simple enough. All you do is add one cup of water and stir. The bacon bits are then added. We fired up the griddle of our trusty Wolf and cooked some bacon on the side. You can never get enough bacon.
The bacon bits package was opened first. We needed to try the bits on their own. Sure enough, they were little pieces of bacon. I popped one in my mouth and was hit with a salt bomb. They also had a little off metallic flavor. This was not the flavor we were craving. We went ahead and followed the instructions. The pancakes cooked very nicely.
The pancakes did not hit the mark. The actual pancake batter was very tasty. It was sweet with maple flavor and almost cake like, like pancakes should be. The bacon bits just threw the flavor off. It is a good thing we cooked some bacon on the side. The 'pepper bacon' on the side was from 'Willow Glen Meats & Smokehouse'. (Bacon Revue next week). Next time, We will use our own bacon and ingredients just like real 'Bacon Freaks'.
