Reviews for Upside-Down Bacon Pancake
"A favorite in my house. I've added oats to the mix and its really good. Very hearty."
"I made this pancake for my kids before school today. It was the best pancake I have ever eaten. Made pancake in a cast iron skillet. If you are really on the ball, using cast iron even cuts cooking time. It also really doesn't even need syrup because of the brown sugar. The only drawback I could finds is I now need two identical size cast iron skillets because you want more than one slice! Denise Saltsburg, PA"
"What size skillet did you use (tryng to convert to using an oven proof baking dish, Thanks"
"I agree with some of the others about it being very sweet. However, I LOVED the pancake being so fluffy. And don't count out this recipe just because you don't have a pan you can bake in as well - I used a skillet to fry the bacon, then put the ingredients into a round cake pan to bake."
"This was very simple and very good. Everyone loved the sweet and salty taste of the bacon with the brown sugar."
