Who doesn't love a good pancake for breakfast?

When I make pancakes, they're always done up in a cast iron skillet, and I only pour the batter in after the bacon's been cooked in the skillet first.

Two reasons for that; firstly the bacon grease makes a nice anti-stick layer on the pan so my pancake batter doesn't stick.

And secondly, the flavor of the bacon grease will seep into the pancakes while they cook giving them an amazingly delicious flavor.

Not exactly easy on your arteries, but it'll make your stomach happy.
