A new take on your family’s favourite flapjacks

Pancakes and bacon are key items for most Stampede breakfast gatherings, but why serve them separate when you can mix them together?  This recipe is a personal favorite that has family and friends wanting more and can be made with different ingredients depending on your dietary range. It makes four large pancakes and can easily be doubled.
