Tailgating Pancakes: Beer and Bacon Man Cakes

Beer and Bacon Mancakes
From Denny:  More ways to use beer and bacon in delicious recipes, two favorites men love.  OK, if it uses dark beer even I'm intrigued.  After all, many dark beers - like Boston's own Samuel Adams Cream Stout - have chocolate in the brew.

A favorite recipe from the Betty Crocker site is this one that includes bacon that is baked and candied with brown sugar.  Then you crumble the bacon into the Bisquick mix, along with the eggs and beer.  The result produces a large and fluffy pancake.

Talk about a cool recipe to use for tailgating.  Can you imagine the smell of the bacon and brown sugar wafting through the RV parking lot outside of the stadium?  You will have new best friends in no time! :)
