Get prepared for a seriously amazing dish…
Bacon Scallion Hoecakes
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup fine yellow cornmeal
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tbsp sugar
2/3 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup bacon fat
1/3 cup sour cream (we substituted Mexican cream – it was great!)
1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup finely chopped crisp bacon
canola oil with a bit of bacon fat
Cook as you would pancakes, frying on each side about 2 minutes. Add more oil as needed.
We served ours with collard greens and spicy grilled shrimp.
