While looking thru a book of old breakfast-related graphics, I came across something I'd never seen before: a photo of pancake batter being poured onto cooked slices of bacon on a griddle, so that the bacon strips were cooked into the pancakes.
This is such a great-sounding idea! Why isn't it more common? Or maybe it *is* common, and I've just missed it somehow..? I don't think so, though -- I googled "bacon strip pancakes" and came up with onely one listing, from a diner menu (see link below).
