  • 1 box pancake mix of your choice
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 2 bananas, cut into ¼ slices lengthwise
  • 4 tablespoons Nutella
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 4 strawberries
  • Toothpicks, if necessary


  • Follow directions on pancake mix and make four large pancakes, at least six inches in diameter.
  • Spread one tablespoon of peanut butter on each pancake. Top with slice of bacon, and several banana slices.
  • Wrap the pancakes around bacon and banana, securing with a toothpick if necessary. Listening to "Blue Christmas" is highly recommended at this point.
  • If your Nutella's a little solid, nuke it for 15 seconds to make it spreadable. Then, um, spread it all over the sides of pancake bundles, thoroughly coating the pancake.
  • Eat as is (well, slice it up) or decorate with mushroom-shaped cookies, banana-strawberry “Santa hats,” fruit, or just more bacon.
