Savory Breakfast Pancakes with Bacon and Fried Eggs {Paleo + Dairy free}

What’s up weekend?! I see you, and I’m ready for your late morning wake ups, freshly made coffee, record playing, and dancing in the kitchen while making savory breakfast pancakes with bacon and fried eggs. 

YES.

A crazy easy and delicious recipe for savory breakfast pancakes! Made with crumbled bacon, green onions, and topped with a tomato jalapeño salad and fried eggs, these pancakes are the perfect reason to stay home and cook breakfast this weekend! 
 
Something about fall always makes me want to stay in and make weekend breakfasts at home instead of venturing too far out of the house for the first meal of the day – staying cozy inside wearing pajamas till noon and noshing on some seriously delicious breakfast just fits with all the fall vibes.

The recipe that I’m sharing with you today is perfect for that. Perfect for your epic (yup I said it) weekend.

To be clear, it’s not so much a recipe for the pancakes themselves (that part I’m going to let you use your favorite recipe for) but for what goes IN and ON them.

These are dressed-up-weekend-ready savory pancakes, if you will 😉

I do love a delicious sweet pancake (CASE IN POINT), but for breakfast, I generally prefer a savory option. So I thought – why not get crazy and COMBINE the two?!

And it was a really, really good (and delicious) idea.

For the pancakes I used Bob’s Red Mill Paleo baking flour and the recipe on their bag for pancakes. This stuff is great – but a little pricey – their blend uses a mix of almond flour, arrowroot starch, coconut flour and tapioca flour. If you have some of this flour or want to buy some, the recipe on the bag is a great one to use. Thrive Market sells it at a discounted price if you want to check it out HERE.

This is another great paleo pancake mix I’ve used in the past:

But as I mentioned before, you can absolutely use any one of your basic favorite pancake recipes. Paleo or not, I won’t judge 😉

My advice for adapting your favorite pancake recipe would simply be to omit any of the “sweet” flavors or sweetening agents in the recipe. Examples of this are:

  • any more than 1 tbsp sugar, maple syrup, honey, etc. (the recipe I used did call for 1 tbsp – a little bit of sweetness is okay)
  • vanilla or almond extract
  • cinnamon or other warming spices
  • bananas (if your favorite pancake recipe is a banana pancake recipe, you will want to use a different one)

what goes in and on these savory pancakes

 

The pancake batter is savory-d up with some crumbled bacon, green onions, garlic powder and black pepper. YUM. I thought about adding some type of cheese as well, but ended up deciding to keep the recipe dairy free. If you’re feeling like getting a little cheesy I don’t think that is at all a bad idea 😉

Next, to top the pancakes, I made a super simple tomato and jalapeño salad, and of course, fried an egg! A little bit of extra bacon and green onions get sprinkled over the top and voila! Your savory breakfast pancakes with bacon and fried eggs are complete 🙂

Pro tip: Keep the pancakes warm in the oven while you fry the eggs – you can do this super easily by preheating your oven to the lowest temp (for me that’s 200 degrees), turning it off, and then moving pancakes to an oven-safe plate while you continue to cook them, and then while you fry your eggs.

The salad could be made before you start cooking the pancakes OR before you start cooking the eggs. I prefer to make it first so that the flavors have a little time to get to know each other, but it’s not necessary.
