I’ll be honest.  I don’t usually make my kids a hot breakfast.  Like, almost never.  I am not a morning person and my mornings getting three kids ready to get out the door are way too rushed for that.  My hubby makes up for it on the weekend and since my kids love breakfast foods so much, I usually make it for dinner about once a week.  All that being said, I think the first day of school calls for a nice hot breakfast, even if it means mom has to get up early and cook.  I’ve got some Jennie-O Turkey bacon in the fridge and I found this Turkey Bacon Pancakes recipe on the Jennie-O website that looks easy enough (and healthy!):

TURKEY BACON PANCAKES

Ingredients

1 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons sugar
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
pinch salt
1 cup buttermilk
¼ cup egg substitute or 1 egg
1 tablespoon melted butter
12 slices JENNIE-O® Turkey Bacon, cooked according to package directions
yogurt, if desired
sugar-frre maple syrup, if desired
fresh fruit, if desired

Directions

Heat griddle pan to medium-high.

In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In small bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg and butter. Add to flour mixture. Stir until combined, do not over stir.

Place two strips bacon together every 4 inches apart on greased griddle. Ladle ¼ to ⅓ cup mixture over bacon to form long pancakes. Cook 2 minutes or until bubbles appear over surface of pancakes. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes longer or until golden brown.

Serve with yogurt, maple syrup and fruit, if desired.

Now that I’m thinking about it though, I could probably pull off this breakfast on a regular basis if I planned ahead.  Mixing up the batter and cooking the bacon the night before would make breakfast a breeze in the morning!
