BACON PANCAKES have been a family favorite for years! We first had these savory pancakes and bacon bits at the Calgary Stampede in Canada and have been making them ever since. If you’ve been thinking about making Bacon Pancakes, today is the day! It’s our favorite easy breakfast recipe. The savory/sweet combo just can’t be beat!
Best Bacon Pancakes
Bacon Pancakes are the perfect combination of my two favorite childhood breakfast recipes, BACON and PANCAKES! Savory and sweet can’t be beat!
Bacon Pancakes take me back to childhood. When I was in elementary school, our family went on a 5 week RV trip through the US and Canada (Yes…5 WEEKS) to attend the National Barbershop Quartet Convention in Calgary, Alberta. That pretty much tells you all you need to know about my family…I grew up knowing more Barbershop music than pop music :).
It was an incredible trip and we got to see so much of the country…such a dream for any kid. One of my favorite memories from the trip was attending the Calgary Stampede Rodeo in Canada…SO FUN!
Our favorite rodeo food was at little street popups…Stampede Cakes! They were simple pancakes with bacon bits inside. My mom has been making them for us ever since, and it’s still one of my favorite easy breakfasts. We originally posted this recipe back when the blog first started all the way back in 2012, so I thought it was about time for a reboot! These BACON PANCAKES deserve to be royally famous!
This Bacon Pancakes Recipe has been requested in our home more times than I can count! My Mom used to make Bacon Pancakes in the shape of our initials for our birthdays. I hope to be making Bacon Pancakes with Henry in a few years!
I just LOVE the combo of savory and sweet in these Easy Bacon Pancakes. They’re so simple, but just bursting with flavor. We add a little bit of almond extract to the batter for an extra dose of awesome…my fave part. Pour on the syrup and you’re really in business. Simple flavors are my favorite, and I just can’t get enough of these!
Kids Friendly Pancakes with Bacon
Bacon Pancakes are loved by kids and adults alike. The perfect kid-friendly recipe!
I’m so grateful for my childhood trip across America/Canada and also grateful that we got found out about these awesome Bacon Pancakes for life! My go-to easy breakfast in a pinch. They’re also easy to freeze for eating later. Make a bunch! Traveling can sometimes show us the best foods while creating the best memories.

Thanks for sharing with us, Rachel!
I usually put the bacon on the side but I’m going to put the bacon in the batter. I top my pancake with peanut butter and an over easy egg and syrup. I call it Montana breakfast as my mother-in- law served it so you could do this. Oh My yes!!
My kids wanted to make bacon pancakes after watching an Adventure Time episode in which they sing about bacon pancakes. These were a very delicious hit, and made me the coolest mom ever for the night. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed them also, and decided this recipe will replace our current pancake recipe. Just the batter without the bacon makes stellar pancakes. Super tall and fluffy! They had great texture and flavor. Thanks!
That’s great! Thanks for sharing, Shannon.
Please explain kosher salt in bacon pancakes.
What a yummy combination! :)
Definitely going to make these wonderful pancakes. Please can you tell me how you freeze them.
This recipe makes me so happy! I live in California, but I grew up in Calgary. I can’t wait to make these for my kids and give them a taste of my old hometown.
Bookmarking this one. These look amazing, Becky. I love your family story. (And your family.)
