5 Minute Chef

To test out the 5 Minute Chef we decided to make Big Bacon Pancakes – because the boys are sick and wanted some comfort food, and because pancakes. And also because BACON.

Now, I normally don’t use pancake (or baking mix) so I made a special trip to Safeway to pick up a box of pancake mix. I figured it would be easier to use a mix for school mornings anyways than making up a big batch of my regular pancakes. We do always have Maple Leaf Ready Crisp on hand because it is Hayden’s bacon of choice.

Big Bacon Pancake (makes 2) 

  • 4 strips brown and serve bacon (I used Maple Leaf Ready Crisp Bacon Strips)
  • 1/2 cup baking mix, like Bisquick (I used Buttermilk Pancake Mix)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk

Place 2 strips of bacon, torn into pieces in pre-heated Red Copper 5 Minute Chef. Mix rest of ingredients together and pour half over bacon. Close the cover and cook 2 minutes, check brownness and flip if needed. Cook 1 more minute until knife inserted in centre comes out clean. Repeat for 2nd pancake.

The 5 Minute Chef worked exactly as described! The pancake was ready and cooked all the way through in about 3 minutes and was a good size. This is going to be a life saver for me with my 9 year old. Because of his sensory disorder, the types of foods he will eat are limited. Pancakes are one of his foods, and now I will be able to make him up a quick pancake in the morning before school instead of spending half an hour making a big batch!
