Bisquick Pancake Mix [+ ingredients to make enough for 12 pancakes]
Unsalted butter
Pure maple syrup


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place bacon slices onto a rimmed baking sheet and bake until crispy. Transfer bacon to a plate lined with kitchen towels to absorb excess fat.

2. WHILE bacon is cooking mix pancake batter according to package directions.

3. When bacon is finished cooking, spray a griddle pan with cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat. Place a piece of bacon in the center of pan. Pour 1/4 cup of pancake batter on top of bacon. Cook approximately 2-3 minutes on each side. Continue until all pancakes are done.

4. Top with butter and syrup.
