Put It All Together

Cook the bacon in a large skillet over a campfire over indirect heat. Move it to cooler side of grill as needed to control the cooking process. Cook the bacon until browned and crisp, 10–12 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. whisk eggs and buttermilk in a large bowl, then add dry ingredients, stirring until just combined (some lumps are okay).

While the bacon is cooking, whisk eggs and buttermilk in a large bowl. Add the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. It should not be perfectly smooth.

Heat another griddle or large skillet over your fire. Make sure to brush with oil. Working in batches, scoop spoonfuls of batter onto your griddle and cook the pancakes until bottoms are golden brown and bubbles form on top. Flip and cook until cooked through.

Serve pancakes with maple syrup and bacon. These are very filling and offer plenty of nutrition, don’t over make what you need.
