Big John's Calgary Stampede Flap-Jacks

Big John's Calgary Stampede Flap-Jacks created by averybird

This tasty(if unhealthy)recipe is one I've used during Stampede Breakfasts for years. These are real "stick to the ribs" western flap-jacks that will wreck any diet in seconds. I've always had a large electric or very large gas griddle to use, but one that will cook 4 at a time will do as well. Can be eaten with your hands, but not with syrup!!

    I have fond memories of being a little girl and visiting my grandparents in Calgary during Stampede week. I remember we would rise very early one morning to travel downtown for the street vendor breakfast, where we ate these VERY flapjacks with a piece of bacon in the middle! In this case I had made the bacon ahead of time and forgot to save my grease. Therefore I used olive oil in the pan. Delicious! Thanks for the memories, Big John! {Made for Bargain Basement Tag}
