Ever since I discovered how instant pudding mixes can make any batter fluffy and moist, I have been putting it in almost everything. Oops, I have given you the secret ingredient.

While I still struggle with frying eggs, waffles or pancakes are my redeeming picture-worthy plate items. (I tend to break the yolks) Since I was running out of stove top space, I pan-fried the bacon in a cast iron pan in the oven at 300F for over 20 minutes. It knocked it out of the park, without much shrinkage. Hubby and his best friend approved.
