Bacon and Brie Whisky Pancakes
Yes. Whisky pancakes. I do not know how I ended up with this recipe, but the result is good!
When shopping today, my toddler decided he wanted pancakes for dinner. So he gets the normal ones, I get the whisky ones!
I decided to go for a full mix of Brie and bacon to make the whisky pancakes complete!
Your usual pancake mix
Whisky of your choice (I used the Glenlivet Captains Reserve)
Prepare your pancake batter the way you normally do
(For my American readers: In Europe we tend to make wider and thinner pancake. Think of French crêpes.)
Slice the Brie into thin slices (thinner than 0,5 cm)
Put the whisky in a small spray (This is optional, you can pour a bit if you don't have a small spray)
Put some butter in the pan and heat it
Put the bacon in first and let it fry a little
Add your pancake batter
Put some of the slices of Brie on the batter before turning
Spray the whisky royally over the pancake before you turn it, don't use too little, but if you see clear puddles of whisky forming on the batter, you might have used too much.
Flip the pancake and watch out for the steam coming from it
Finish the pancake like you normally would.
To be very honest, this was an experiment.
I had used whisky on bacon before, and some with cheese so I decided to combine those in some pancakes.
The result is a very savoury pancake, that gets some of the whisky as an extra layer to the flavours.
I do not know it peated whisky is a good match for this, if you decide to try it with peated whisky, let me know what the results were!
