Menu – Pancake Pizza – Cinnamon Bacon

We love to have brunch after church on Easter and here are some recipes I think will be a hit whether you serve them on Easter morning, for brunch or breakfast any time.



Pancake Pizza*
Homemade Maple syrup*
Cinnamon Bacon*
Fruit Platter


Pancake Pizza

2 cups biscuit mix
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. pancake syrup
1 cup granola
1 cup walnuts

Combine first 5 ingredients. Spread on a greased 14 inch pizza pan. Sprinkle with granola and nuts. Bake at 425° for 12-15 minutes until golden. Cut into wedges and serve with more syrup.


Cinnamon Bacon

1 lb. bacon
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Mix sugar and cinnamon. Cut bacon in half widthwise and roll in sugar mix. Twist and place on a foil lined 15x10x1 baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes until crisp. These freeze great. If you plan to freeze them, just bake at 350° for 6-8 minutes or until heated through.

    I have a confession. Instead of spending less, i just ordered a pizza. What is it in these foods that just draw you towards them? Okay i know the answer, just asking. Your recipes sound wonderful. Will try. soon. Thank you.

    Both those recipes are unusual. I like them both. I never heard of Cinnamon Bacon, but it sounds wonderful. They both would be a joyous way to celebrate Easter Morning. I think your recipes are always good. I am always making them. Keep up the good work.

    My husband just had 11 teeth pulled so he could get his new upper plate.
    He said it sounded good but could I wait until he could chew something harder than mashed potatoes.
    So maybe in a couple weeks he will be up to this.
    Cinnamon is such a healthy spice to get any way you can.

    We love the syrup recipes. I was skeptical but one day we ran out of syrup and tried Grandma’s Maple syrup but with vanilla instead of maple. Now it’s the only syrup we use plus it’s so easy to make. When my parents came for a visit I served it and they didn’t know it wasn’t store bought. My dad actually made my mom make it when they got home.

    for the maple syrup recipe I use rum or brandy flavouring.
    Have done it with peppermint flavour as well.
    Any flavour your family likes works really well.
    My grand children like coconut the best.
    I like it because it is always hot and I don’t have a bottle of sticky syrup ready to tip over in the fridge.

    ok I will admit it.
    when first looked at the pictures I thought the fruit platter was the pizza. figured it looked great but had a bit too much fruit.
    put blobs of whipping cream on top of it and it could go on the pizza crust. or make small merenges bake them golden brown and put on top of pizza and looks like mozzerella cheese.
    I am going to try this, it looks fun for a night with friends and a bottle or two of wine.

    My mother always made that version of maple syrup…didn’t have the store bought kind except in restaurants until I moved out. LOVE the suggestion to use butter rum extract, can’t wait to try it!
