Bacon & Cheese Pancakes? Yes, please.

Millie-Sayings-MBC2Some mornings, I’m not so sweet and my breakfast is the same way… today, it was savory! I decided, it was time to change up the ol’ traditional buttermilk pancakes with buckwheat pancakes, chopped up bacon, shredded cheese and diced green onions. All of the Mill’s pancake mixes have 2 or fewer grams of sugar per serving, making it super easy to have my pancakes as sweet OR savory as I want! And what’s breakfast without bacon? Give my Savory Bacon & Cheese Pancake Recipe a try!
