During Christmas shopping last December, Kelli bought this Mo's Bacon Chocolate Chip Pancake gift tube from Neiman Marcus. She intended it to be a gift, but the last tube they had was slightly dented and she ended up deciding not to give away the flawed tube. It stayed in our pantry.
Last weekend, I made half the batch of the mix. It makes about 3 pancakes per recipe portion (2 portions per tube). We didn't have buttermilk last week so I substituted with 2% milk and vinegar.
This morning, I decided to use up the other half of the pancake mix and bacon chocolate chips. I opened the refrigerator to find we didn't have any milk, but we had a case of Brown Cow Greek Yogurts! I substituted the buttermilk portion of the ingredients with a containter of the Brown Cow Strawberry Greek Yogurt. I also added a little water to it so it wasn't so thick.
The pancakes come out great. It's kind of difficult to mess up this mix even if you don't follow the instructions. They do make the instruction rather complex sounding asking to separate the egg white and yolk, then mixing them separately. Anyway, this is not the usual thing that I cook at home. Pancake mix is not something I keep on hand because it can be made rather easily with the basic ingredients on hand. Bacon Chocolate chips is another story. I don't think I would necessarily put bacon into a chocolate chip pancake that I made, but being that it is a novelty item, it was interesting to try. I still would prefer real bacon strips sitting on the plate beside my pancakes!
What do you think about this Mo's Bacon Chocolate Chip Pancakes mix?
