Breakfast in Bed

ive always loved making breakfast in bed for my family, and its always fun…the only problem is that since i hate coffee, and that my parents love coffee….well yeah…i never learned how to make it, so theres always  apart of their meal thats missing…unless my brother makes the coffee for me…. of all things that i absolutely fail at doing, its brewing a good cup of coffee. well…technically, i can brew it, its just tasting it thats the problem XD

waking up before everyone else also has the advantage of choosing leftovers in the fridge before my brothers decide to gobble it all up for breakfast, and to be able to throw together somethign with them instead of just wasting it away into the trash where its no use to anyone but flies and maggots. yum. but every once in a while, ill wake up early enough to make a full on breakfast of eggs, bacon, and pancakes, which take a lot of time to make for a family of 6. but during school ive never really had the time to do this, so i just took it all and make it into a sandwich…which actually turned out to be quite popular around friends. so sandwich version and breakfast in bed version, here we come.

oh and p.s. this will serve 6 people ish. 2 eggs, 2-3 strips of bacon, and 2 large pancakes per person

 what you need:

pancakes:

  • 2 c. flour
  • 4 tbs sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 12 c milk
  • 4 Tbs butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Tbs veggie oil
  • 1 pack of bacon
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 12 eggs
  • salt/pepper to your ohsodesired amount
  • jams and jellies of your heart’s wants

take your wet ingredients and beat them together. then take your dry ingredients and lightly whisk them in. the batter should still be quite lumpy and not over mixed.

heat up a large skillet on medium high and then grease it with either a dab of butter or a swipe of oil. when a drop of water thats dropped on it sizzles immediately, then the pan is ready.

drop a few tablespoons of batter for each pancake onto the pan and let it spread out then fill up the pan making sure to leave room for your spatula to move around.

when the top of the pancake has bubbles everywhere that are popping and the bottom is nice and golden brown, then its ready to be flipped. this should be around…2-3 minutes ish depending on how hot your pan is. let it cook for another minute or two after flipping it until its golden brown. remove and then continue to cook the rest of the pancakes.

 

BACON!

my friend has an absolute obsession with bacon XD he has a shirt that says bacon strips all over the chesty region of it, and i wanna get him those bandaids that look like bacon.

so you take your bacon, coat it in the brown sugar, and then fry them up as usual. this makes it really sweet, and follows the salty-sweet concept which i absolutely love. just be careful not to touch the hot bacon afterwards because its been caramelized, and yeah fresh off the pot caramel is VERY hot.

 

fry up your eggs how ever you want. sunny side up, eggs over easy, scrambled, it really doesnt matter at all, as long as the end result is edible.

 

plate your design, or in the case of a sammich, then substitute the pancakes for some toasted bread, and youre good to go. 😀 looove this so much.
