Grilled Bacon Skewers

Course Breakfast


  • Wright Brand Bacon (Hickory Smoked - 24 ounces)
  • 1 cup complete pancake mix
  • ¾ cup water
  • 2 ½ tablespoons + ½ teaspoon oil (I used canola oil)
  • 2 kiwi fruit
  • Cooking spray

Syrup Drizzle Recipe

  • 1 tablespoon natural local honey
  • ½ teaspoon molasses
  • teaspoon water

Additional Items Needed

  • Wooden Skewers
  • Waffle Maker
  • Whisk
  • Small Bowl
  • Medium Mixing Bowl
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Measuring Cups
  • Outdoor or Indoor Grill (if outdoor grill, you will also need aluminum foil)
  • Decorative Glass
  • Paper Shreds from the gift wrapping section


  1. Preheat outdoor or indoor grill and waffle maker.
  2. While the grill and waffle maker are preheating, mix complete pancake mix, water and oil together in a medium bowl.
  3. Once the waffle maker is preheated, spray the waffle iron with cooking spray then pour batter into the mold and close.
  4. While the waffle is cooking, place the bacon on the grill and cook it until it is done. If you decide to grill the bacon on your outdoor grill, place aluminum foil on the grate.
  5. While the bacon is grilling, the waffle should be completely cooked. Remove it from the waffle maker and place it on a plate to cool.
  6. While the bacon continues to cook, cut the kiwi fruit down the center and trim away the peel and cut it into chunks.
  7. Next mix the syrup drizzle ingredients together and set aside.
  8. Once the waffle is cooled, cut it into decent sized chunks.
  9. At this point the bacon should be fully cooked, remove it from the heat and place it on a plate with paper towels to cool.
  10. Once the bacon has cooled, cut the bacon into thirds.
  11. To assemble the grilled bacon skewers, place a piece of the waffle on the skewer.
  12. Next add a chunk of the kiwi fruit.
  13. Then add a piece of bacon.
  14. Repeat this process until you have filled your wooden skewers and finish the off with a piece of the bacon.
