Apple Maple Bacon Pancakes combine apples, bacon, pancakes and maple syrup for an incredibly delicious breakfast that is perfect for a Fall weekend.
Cool mornings with the beautiful red, gold, and green leaves of Fall foliage tell us that Autumn is upon us. OK, maybe not yet in Southeast Texas but in Canada and many parts of the US, Fall is definitely in the air.
With Fall comes Fall apples, which are one of my favorite Fall foods! There is nothing better than crisp, tart apples like those in Cinnamon Apple Bread Pudding or my Apple Pecan Cream Cheese Cake.
However, I think this Apple Maple Bacon Pancakes recipe is my new favorite Breakfast recipe. It is bursting with the sweet flavors of apples and maple syrup, which combine perfectly with the salty, savory bacon to dance upon your taste buds.
I made these Apple Maple Bacon Pancakes for a Saturday morning Breakfast for my Mother-in-Law. She is elderly and has dementia and sometimes gets confused about where she is.
The other night she thought she was at a hotel and was asking if we served breakfast here. I told her yes we do. We serve fabulous breakfasts here, and she laughed, thinking I was just bragging.
The next morning I decided to make my Mother-in-Law these Apple Maple Bacon Pancakes for breakfast. I knew she would not remember our conversation last night, but if we were going to be a hotel, I think I would prefer to be a bed and breakfast.
I thought about what a bed and breakfast would serve and came up with what I think is a memorable breakfast, this Apple Maple Bacon Pancakes recipe. It was a huge success! Everyone at our house loved them!
These Apple Maple Bacon Pancakes take a little extra time than regular pancakes to chop the apples and cook the bacon, but they are absolutely worth it.
Go ahead and make these Apple Maple Bacon Pancakes for Breakfast, or dinner or whenever you feel like it. Be sure to swing back here and let me know how you liked it.

For another Fall recipe, try this Pumpin Praline Bread Pudding
Hi Michele, thanks for sharing your recipe. I am obsessed with bread pudding , but I, like your husband, am not a fan of pumpkin. I am, however, a fan of sweet potato. I make a recipe similar to this one called “Praline Sweet Potato Bread Pudding.” I use sweet potato purée made from baked sweet potatoes; I use half white and half brown sugar or sometimes just brown sugar; I use store bought pre-baked crescent rolls for my bread; and I use pecan praline liqueur instead of vanilla. The liqueur cooks out when baked, but leaves a rich flavor . If you want to kick the sauce up a notch, you can add a tablespoon or two, of the liqueur at the end of cooking the sauce. Or not, your choice. You should try it, and let me know what you both think !
