Most people dislike grocery shopping. They feel it's a chore to be endured. They might procrastinate it until they have nothing but crackers and cold cereal left to sustain them.
I enjoy grocery shopping. I like seeing the new food products and tasting the samples.
I go with a list but inevitably end up with a few more things then planned. Today I purchased blackberries and soft goat cheese on a whim.
I have no idea what I'm going to do with blackberries and goat cheese. The blackberries were on sale, and the store was giving out samples of goat cheese.
I found this peanut butter pancake recipe on food.com. I added bacon and swapped out some of the vegetable oil with bacon grease.
The ingredients are 4 slices of cooked bacon, 1 cup flour, 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, 1 tablespoon bacon grease, 1 egg, 1 cup milk, and 2 tablespoons milk.
In a bowl, I added the flour, baking powder, and salt. I whisked the dry ingredients together.
In another bowl, I added the peanut butter, sugar, oil, and bacon fat.
I whisked these ingredients together until smooth and combined.
I beat in the egg and then the milk.
I poured the milk mixture into the dry ingredients.
I stirred until just combined.
I greased a hot skillet with more bacon fat and added 1/4 a cup of pancake batter.
I sprinkled on some chopped bacon.
I flipped the pancakes when the edges had dried a little and bubbles formed in the center of the pancakes. I cooked the other side for a few minutes.
I let the leftover pancakes cool on a rack and stored them in the fridge.
I ate these bacon peanut butter pancakes with slices of banana.
These were delectable. Bacon and peanut butter are a match made in heaven. The sliced banana made the whole experience even more exquisite.
The bacon and peanut butter taste were perfectly balanced. The pancakes were not sweet, which I think was perfect for this dish. The flavors were nutty and savory.
The pancakes were fluffy and light, my ideal pancake texture.
They were nourishing and protein packed but felt a little extravagant. These are one of my favorite pancakes on my blog. Magnificent!
