Sorry I missed posting this for International Bacon Day this year.... It is celebrated the Saturday before Labor Day.
It has been a long time since I’ve food blogged. But International Bacon Day warrants a mention. Not actually of bacon (which by the way was smoked bacon from the Amana Colonies ) but of the peach pancakes that went with it.
Yes, peach pancakes with apple syrup, mini omeletes and BACON. It was my intention to make al carbonara but once I started cooking the bacon the spuds requested breakfast for dinner. I hate to admit it, but I’m not big on making pancakes so I usually rely on a mix. But there was no mix in the cupboard. Only a couple boxes of Jiffy Mix. On the side of the box was a recipe for corn pancakes. I followed the recipe with the addition of butter instead of shortening and a dab of honey. I also added fresh cut up peaches. YUM!
So I now have yet another reason to love Jiffy Mix. I love it as cornbread made with a dash of honey. I love a slice of this warm under vanilla ice cream with fresh strawberry jam on top of it all. I love it made with corn, jalapenos and cheddar cheese. I love it made with cheddar cheese and bacon. I love it with blueberries and honey baked right in.
I know I should make my own mix and I occasionally do when I have some stone ground corn meal from the Ludwig Mill. But Jiffy Mix is easy, cheap and reliable.
