Mushroom and Bacon topped Pancakes

Posted on January 5th, 2013  |  7 Comments

So I’m not going to give any excuses for my lack of posting the past two weeks, or why it’s been so sporadic the past few months. I’m sure you all understand, relate and don’t care why I do anything actually. But I am going to tell you I’m pretty excited to spend time behind my camera and in the kitchen cooking – thanks to this lil’ numba’ showing up on Christmas day (love you mom!)

Ahhhhh! What Katie Ate Cookbook!! I about flipped. I had no idea I was getting it, and no idea I’d want to make every.single.recipe in it.

Michigan was fun, we went sledding, on trash bags (sleds are overrated) down the huge hill in front of my house. Totally makes snow and being outside in below 30 degree Fahrenheit worth it. So does seeing your 60 or 40 year old mom fly face first downhill.

Ann Arbor was a blast. So were 2nd row seats to the UNDEFEATED Michigan Basketball game with the sisters and husbands. Haha I just thought from reading that you may think we were sisterwives and had multiple husbands (though I don’t think that’s how it works), but we’re not. We’re sisters. And we each have a husbands.


We had quite the trip home to Houston on New Years Eve. First off, someone (me) booked us non-direct flights -problem #1- so when our flight home got delayed in Detroit, we missed our connecting flight in Dallas (#2). Trying to be responsible (New Year coming up and all), we called American Airlines before we took off on our delayed Detroit flight to check out the options. And they were none (#3). No more flights from Dallas to Houston until Monday – not good when you have to work on Monday at 8 am – and no direct flights to Houston. So, we flew to Dallas, talked to at least 3 agents on the phone for a total of 3 hours, missed any open restaurants, froze our non-jacket-wearing butts off, slept 3 hours, flew to Houston, worked all day and passed out at 10.

Oh yeah and I made a batch of these. Hit the spot and made everything alright.

How was your New Years eve?


The recipe is simple.

1. Make a batch of your famous pancakes. Or try these, these or these (minus the lemon and poppyseeds).

2. Bake bacon in a 425 degree oven until crisp.

3. Saute mushrooms with shallots and garlic (if you like those sort of flavors any time of day), salt, pepper, thyme (fresh or dried – more of the former, less of the latter) and nutmeg in olive oil and butter, over medium-low heat for 5-7 minutes.

4. Layer pancakes with mushrooms and bacon, top with syrup and feta cheese if you feel like going all out.

5. Take a bite with just a little bit of everything. Then take another. Enjoy!

    Sounds delicious! Linked on my blog :) x

  5. […] 2. Savory Pancakes.  We aren’t talking about your typical breakfast-for-dinner kind of fare.  Restaurants like State Bird Provisions in San Francisco and Chez Sardine are creating them with ingredients like sauerkraut, pecorino, duck and more.  Create your own at home– mashed potato and goat cheese or mushroom and bacon.
