  • 8 oz bacon chopped
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1-1/3 cups milk
  • 2 oz sharp cheddar cheese grated
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 cup warm maple syrup or to taste
  • 1/8 tsp chipotle chili powder or to taste
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp butter


  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes; remove from heat. Stir green onions into bacon and sauté in hot fat until slightly softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer bacon mixture to a strainer to drain, retaining drippings.
  • Whisk flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper together in a large bowl. Add drained bacon mixture, milk, Cheddar cheese, eggs, melted butter, and sugar to flour mixture; whisk until batter is smooth. Let batter rest for 10 minutes.
  • Combine maple syrup and chipotle chili powder together in a small bowl; whisk until chili powder is completely dissolved.
  • Heat1 teaspoon bacon drippings, 1 teaspoon oil, and 1 teaspoon butter on a griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by 1/4-cupful onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Transfer pancakes to plate and top with maple syrup.
