  • Serves: 4 people


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 14oz pkg coleslaw mix
  • 5 slices bacon
  • 3 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp low-sodium soy sauce

  3. Heat a 12-in. oven-safe frying pan over medium. Spray bottom and sides of pan with oil.
  4. Lay bacon strips in the pan and cook until bottom is just crisp, 1 to 2 min. Flip bacon, then pour batter overtop. Smooth top. Cook for 2 min, then transfer to oven.
