9 Ways to Make Your Brinner Special

  • Crumble bacon and add it to your pancake or waffle mix to create an all-in-one breakfast
  • Slice a muffin in half and then put a slice of sausage in the center to create a new spin on a breakfast sandwich
  • Make mini-pancakes, then sandwich a layer of strawberries and a dollop of whipped cream between two of them to create a strawberry shortcake sandwich
  • Top your waffles with non-traditional ingredients like hamburger and bacon, then melt a little cheese over the top
  • In a bowl, layer blueberry pancakes, Greek yogurt and fresh blueberries or raspberries to create a breakfast parfait
  • Use your pancake like a burritos and roll up eggs and bacon inside
  • Grab a squeeze bottle and make some pancake art
  • Add sweet or savory extras to your muffin mix like bacon bits, corn, chocolate chips or dried cranberries and sunflower seeds
  • Make a Skillet Apple Pancake Puff (recipe below) and serve it with a side of syrup, caramel sauce, whipped cream – or all three!

    Love your ideas! I’m going to make one of these this weekend. Could I use fresh apples?

      Thanks Rose! Yes, you certainly could use fresh apples. For the best results, I would recommend peeling, coring, slicing and then sauteing first in a little butter to caramelize and soften them prior to baking.

    One unique thing we like to make is pancake tortillas. We use extra water to make them thinner and larger, and use them as tortillas for egg burritos.
