How to Make Puftaloons with Maple Syrup and Bacon
- Start by frying the bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Set bacon aside and keep warm until you're ready to serve the Puftaloons. Drain all but about 2 to 4 Tbsp of the bacon grease from the pan.
- While bacon is frying, stir flour, baking powder, and salt together in a medium size bowl. Using your hands, rub the butter into the flour mixture until fine crumbs form. Add the milk and stir with a fork until a slightly sticky dough forms.
- Turn dough onto floured surface and knead until dough is smooth. Roll dough to about 1/8" or 1/4" thickness. Use a 3" or 3.5" biscuit cutter to cut 12 round circles from the dough. Re-roll dough scraps as necessary.
- Returning to the skillet, heat the bacon grease over medium heat. Place about 4 of the dough circles into the hot grease and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn and cook other side. Repeat until all of the Puftaloons have been cooked, adding butter to the pan if needed to prevent sticking.
- Divide the bacon and Puftaloons among 4 individual plates. Top to Puftaloons with a little maple syrup or jam, and serve immediately while still hot.
