These delicious, gluten free Potato and Bacon Pancakes are a wonderful way to get your weekend dose of potatoes, bacon and eggs!
Being low carb and gluten free, bacon has always held a special place in my heart…and, in my heart it will probably always remain – literally! Most of the time, I use bacon as a topping – I sprinkle a little on Breakfast Potato Skins or on Breakfast Beet Pizza, so when I came across Chris @IFailedFran’s “Bacon Explosion“ I could only scroll in wonderment! It was weaved bacon with more bacon inside. I have to admit – I’d never seen so much bacon in one mouthful before. This was clearly a tangible and edible Pindaric Ode to bacon!
If I were to think back to my middle school poetry class, what I have today isn’t quite a Pindaric ode, but more a Horatian one.
You see, these pancakes have bacon in them – but, there is just a tad bit of it – some (my daughter) might say I should have added more – but, seeing “balance” is the word of the month round this place I figured 4 crumbled up pieces of bacon were enough. She talked me into topping these pancakes with more bacon and I told her if she had some veggie and pickled beet saute for dinner, we had a deal!
These pancakes are a marriage of potatoes and bacon and eggs. Instead of having them separately for breakfast – you can join them together with some coconut milk and voila – deliciousness! Now, as usual, these pancakes have no added flour in them – in any form. Just smooshed up potatoes, coconut milk, eggs, chives, bacon and a pinch of salt. As these didn’t have any flour in them – they did take almost 5-6 minutes on each side to cook.

Meanwhile, grease a pan and let it warm up on the stove with the temperature set a little below the medium heat mark
Ladle 2-3 spoonfuls of potato/egg/bacon mix onto hot pan nd let cook for 5-6 minutes

* Now all stoves are different, so just make sure your flame isn't high enough to burn these and not low enough to not cook these.
