I’d like to start out by saying that I am HORRIBLE at making decision.  Absolutely horrible! I take forever and always have to weight the pros and cons of each side.  Whether I’m deciding what to do this weekend or if I want fish sticks or chicken nuggets for dinner, I take forever, change my mind three times and then just end up choosing what I had originally chosen in the first place.  And many times, if I’m able, I decide not to chose and just end up getting both. This has definitely called for some weird dinner combinations for sure!

This fun fact about me drives my husband crazy! I remember a time we were in our local grocery store picking out what to eat for dinner (For some reason this is always the biggest decision of my day) and we had narrowed it down to two options. He wanted burgers and I wanted egg rolls. These are not the healthiest options, I know, but a little splurge here and there is a good thing once in a while.

Anyway… two options. Do I go with his to be nice so he can eat what he likes? But then I wouldn’t really enjoy it. Do I go with the egg rolls? They do look really good and are cheaper. But then he wouldn’t be satisfied.

Right at this moment, my husband noticed I was having a hard time deciding and was about to ask him. So guess what he did?…He walked away!! Leaving me there stranded in the aisle with my own internal conflicts, forced to decide by myself. I stood there for a good five minutes going back and forth between these two options, looking at third and fourth alternatives instead. Then ultimately deciding….I’ll get them both!

Honestly, for some reason, making decisions is so hard for me so I try to avoid them as much as possible and end up combining a lot of things in the process, like today’s post for example!

It’s breakfast time and what should I make? Hmm eggs and bacon or pancakes? I choose option three–both! These little guys came about again when I could not make a decision for the life of me. They combine all the best things about breakfast, eggs, bacon, cheese and pancakes!

They are perfectly portioned for sharing with guests and so delicious you might not want to. A little drizzle of maple syrup helps to pull together the sweet and salty of these Breakfast Pancake Cups.


  • 1 package of bacon cooked
  • 10 eggs
  • 12 slices of cheese (I used manchego, but any will work)
  • Pancake mix


  1. Prepare pancake mix according to package. Make enough for twelve small pancakes (about the size of your hand)
  2. In a separate pan fry bacon and set aside.
  3. Scrabble eggs ( I used the same as the bacon, to get a little extra flavor (and avoid dirtying another pan!))
  4. Stuff pancakes into muffin tin. Add a slice of bacon and cheese to each pancake. Fill with egg and top with extra cheese and/or bacon.
  5. Drizzle with maple syrup and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
  6. Let cool completely and drizzle with more maple. Enjoy!
