Bacon And Corn Griddle Cakes Combine Sweet And Savory For A Heavenly Breakfast

If you’re looking to put a spin on pancakes, turn them savory.  Bacon and Corn Griddle Cakes offer a warm and hearty breakfast option, topped with the comforting sweetness of maple syrup.

Griddle cakes are certainly not a new thing, but not necessarily seen as a breakfast staple.  Well, we ask “why not”?  I mean, look at that photograph.  That light and fluffy pancake, mixed with crunchy, smoky bacon and sweet corn.  Made a little more interesting with a dash of cayenne and then turned it into a sweet/savory delight with the addition of gooey syrup.  Lordy, my mouth is watering like crazy!
