Happy Father's Day!!! (Beer and Bacon "Mancakes")

How do you say thanks to Dad?  With Bacon of course!  Oscar Meyer is counting on it.  They are the currently marketing Gift Boxes especially designed for dear old Daddy in mind.  The appeal to 3 different types of dads...You can get a bacon box called 'The Commander,' 'The Matador,' or 'The Woodsman.' The specialized boxes each come with their own trinket to accompany the Oscar Mayer Original Bacon Strips. Boxes in the collection come with a money clip, cuff links or multi-tool.
Check out the Commercial here.

These were a huge hit for Father's Day.  Make some for your man...Nothing says manly-man food like a meal made of beer, bacon and pancakes. Stir candied bacon and your favorite beer into Bisquick to make these larger-than-life mancakes.

Beer and Bacon "Mancakes"

1/2 lb bacon (8 slices)
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
1 cup of your favorite regular or nonalcoholic beer
2 eggs

Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with foil. Place wire rack on top of cookie sheet. Arrange bacon in single layer on top of rack. Bake 10 minutes.

Sprinkle bacon with half the brown sugar. Bake 10 minutes longer. Turn bacon over; sprinkle with remaining brown sugar. Bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until golden brown. Remove from rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Crumble bacon into small pieces; set aside.

Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375°F; grease with vegetable oil or shortening.

In medium bowl, beat Bisquick mix, beer and eggs with whisk until blended. If batter is too thick, add additional beer until desired consistency. Stir in bacon. Pour by 1/2 cupfuls onto hot griddle. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until golden brown.
