Sunday Mornin’ Elvis Pancakes

I grew up listening to Elvis. He’s my dad’s favorite so we own every cd, every movie and a bunch of Elvis-themed decor. It’s pretty cool actually. When we were little, we would sometimes even have Elvis sandwiches – peanut butter and banana. So good!

A few years ago, I learned that bacon, honey, and frying or grilling were also involved in Elvis sandwiches, but sadly, I never got the chance to make them after finding out about my peanut allergy. BUT, then I discovered sunbutter. I still haven’t made a sandwich yet, but I did come up with this pancake recipe which is still pretty good. Plus, it combines a bunch of awesome things. King of pancakes? I think yes.

We cooked the bacon in the oven, as per usual. As we usually do, we got a bit distracted by British accents and harmonizing to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (be on the lookout on instagram hah), so we may have ended up with a hunka hunka burnin’ bacon. Luckily we still had enough to eat haha. Classic Sundays in Apartment 2012.

Hope you like these, and I promise I’ll make you some when I’m home for break Dad! đŸ™‚
