Meal Idea for Kids: “Bacon”, “Eggs”, and “Burger” Pancakes

pancakes

Pancakes are a versatile meal idea for kids.  Our friends at Super Healthy Kids take them to the next level with bacon, eggs, and burger (yes, we said burger) pancakes!

My brother texted some pictures of his niece making some crazy, fun pancakes.  She had bacon and eggs, a burger, and a rainbow with a tree by it.  I knew I’d have fun recreating it for the blog, and I really did!  I like getting artsy in the kitchen sometimes.

Quick tip on healthy pancakes

Unless I’m making specialty pancakes, like the Yam pancakes, I use our Master Pancake mix!  This mix is cheaper and healthier than a commercial pancake mix.  Then you can add any mix-ins you have in your pantry.  Things I’ve added to our pancake mix include:

  • Flax Meal
  • Oats
  • Corn meal
  • 7 grain hot cereal
  • Wheat germ
  • Rice cereal
  • berries
  • chocolate chips
  • bananas
  • peanut butter

Then I divided up the mix, and added some food coloring.  You can also use natural colors of course from berries, beets, spinach, etc.   Then with a squirt bottle, we made a hamburger, french fries (with cheese and ketchup on top), and bacon and eggs!  These pancakes aren’t just for the little guys.  My 12 year old probably liked them them most! LOL

What pancake mix-ins do you use?
