Serves: 8


  • Canola oil, as needed
  • 2 cups pancake and waffle mix, plus ingredients on box
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 12 pieces Bacon, cut in half
  • 1⁄4 cup Original Pancake Syrup


  • Fill a heavy duty 3-quart medium pot with 2” canola oil. Heat on medium until 350°F registers on a candy thermometer.
  • In a medium bowl, prepare the pancake and waffle mix according to package directions, increasing the liquid by ½ cup and adding sugar.
  • When oil is hot, dip bacon into batter, coating bacon entirely. Immediately add bacon to hot oil, cooking 4-5 pieces at a time.
  • Turn the dough until all sides are golden, cooking about 2-3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar after cooking, if desired.
  • Repeat until all the bacon has been cooked. Serve with maple syrup to dip.
