More About This Recipe

  • Start the party early with Beer and Bacon Mancakes -- hearty pancakes spiked with beer and candied bacon.

    Why do we call them mancakes? Because we have a sense of humor -- and because we created the recipe to represent the dude food trend for the Betty 10.

    The recipe covers all your basic manly food groups: beer, bacon and pancakes.

    It’s easy to make these hearty breakfast cakes. Just make pancakes like you usually would using Bisquick -- but replace the milk with your favorite beer, and stir candied bacon into the batter. They’re meaty enough for a man, but tasty enough for a woman.

    Watch our video to see how to serve up dude food for breakfast:

    Beer. Bacon. Good.
