Chef John’s Mancakes

This video shows you how to make pancakes loaded with bacon, green onions, and sharp Cheddar cheese. These savory cakes have big, big flavor. And for best results, add a little dried chipotle pepper to your real maple syrup; the smoky, mildly spicy pepper really complements the sweet syrup and savory cornmeal cakes. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Mancakes. They’re a favorite for Father’s Day!

Tried this for my dad this morning and it was amazing! I would suggest eating it alone though, it was a little much with the side of grits, sausage, bacon, and biscuit. These pancakes are literally a meal all by themselves. Very good! Thanks so much!

Since it is more "savory" than sweet, instead of syrup maybe a little sausage gravy with a dash of Dave's Heaven Sent Hot Sauce?? It could start a trend!
