Pancake Day – Pancake Burgers

Grill Grilling Parts

Grilled Pancake Burger

It’s Mardi Gras. Some people refer to this as pancake day because pancakes were a great way to get rid of the indulgent things in the house like flour, eggs, milk, and sugar. Whether or not you give up something indulgent for the Lenten season, we think it’s a great excuse to eat pancakes.
Well, we saw a recipe for savory “pancakes” as the bun for a burger over at We wanted to see how it tasted with a classic pancake that had some sweetness to it.
Of course we kept the bacon.

Season Ground Beef – we used Monterey Jack cheese, cumin, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper

I like to roll the ground beef into balls to help regulate the size, then they’re easy to smash into round patties

You’ll need to heat the grill with the griddle on it. We started that early because it was cold here today

Start the bacon on the griddle and grill burgers on the remaining space

When the bacon is done, start the pancakes on the griddle using the bacon grease

I used the warming rack as a holding space for the cooked pancakes. They stayed warm and crispy

The Result

See those grid marks from the warming rack?

Then we had a party. #pancakeday Happy Fat Tuesday!
