Good Mornin’! You are looking bright eyed and bushy tailed today! Need some bacon? We have a few “traditions” around our home. One being, Saturday mornings are bacon mornings, and then of course some other delicious breakfast accompaniment. Cereal and toast and that sort of thing are reserved for school days. You can read more about our favorite bacon accompaniments and get the recipes here. This morning we are having our bacon with a Baked Apple Pancake. It’s super easy, and soooo good you might want to take it to your next brunch potluck.
