Breakfast for Dinner

Yesterday morning before I left for work, I opened up the refrigerator and heavily sighed what am I going to make for dinner? I know all of you have been in that position once or twice and Sean walked by at the appropriate time and said let's do breakfast for dinner! He is a lifesaver :-) 
On the menu for our breakfast for dinner, sausage, scrambled eggs and pancakes, relatively simple right with not a lot of scrubbing of the pots and pans (I have a secret though, our trade-off is I make dinner, Sean cleans up the dishes, best arrangement we ever made!)
Cook the sausage or breakfast links on the skillet, easy.
Make scrambled eggs, easy.
Make the best ever pancakes, now where do I find a recipe for the best ever pancakes??
p.s. People, please do yourself a favor and use real maple syrup on your pancakes, your tastebuds will thank you.
Anyways so after some perusing on the Internet, I came across a recipe that sounded pretty good.
For this recipe, you need 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 3 tablespoons sugar, 2 large eggs, 2 cups buttermilk, 4 tablespoons of melted and slightly cooled butter.

In a large bowl add the dry ingredients, the flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar.

In a smaller bowl, combine the wet ingredients, eggs buttermilk and melted butter.


Whisk in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and give it a good mixing until there are so flour lumps in the batter.




 Preheat your oven to 200 degrees if you don't plan on serving your pancakes right away. 
Melt a little bit more butter on your griddle pan, and when you sprinkle a few drops of water on the pan, they should bounce and sizzle then your pan is ready for pancake-making!
I used a measuring cup, 1/2 cup, for this process, fill the cup up with batter and pour it in one place on the griddle pan. Use the back of the measuring cup if you want to spread the batter around a bit.

Wait for bubbles to appear on the surface of the pancake, then you are ready to flip!
Real quickly with your awesome flipping technique, flip those pancakes over, cook them for a little bit longer but not too long and then serve the pancakes or pop them in your warmed oven until they are ready to serve.


Then spread some butter, some REAL maple syrup, then serve, eat and enjoy, your breakfast for dinner pancakes accompanies by scrambled eggs, sausage links, and of course orange juice to truly make it breakfast!

My husband always does breakfast for dinner because that is the only food he knows how to cook! And I've always wanted to try making pancakes from scratch but we have epic amounts of pancake mix I'd feel irresponsible if we didnt use that up first!

Breakfast for dinner is always the best. It's such a treat because often we don't have time for breakfast at real breakfast time! Ha.

Yum! Those pancakes look amazing! I am a big fan of adding chocolate chips and whipped cream on top to my pancakes (sweet tooth alert)! You live in California right? Or maybe I completely made that up I can't remember :) Anyways there is a breakfast place called Snooze in San Diego and LA and they have several in Colorado as well. They make Red Velvet Pancakes and they are the greatest thing in the whole world!

REBrown said...

I love breakfast for dinner - just not pancakes. I can't stand pancakes or syrup for some reason. KB really loves them but I can't stand it!

The Not Quite Military Wife said...

Way to go on the REAL maple syrup! I live in Vermont and they homemake and mass produce all the real maple syrup here (and canada)...and it is such a treat!

Allison said...

I was feeling the same way the other night and did the same thing! Breakfast for dinner is always simple and satisfying! :)

Janna Bogert said...

I WISH I could use real syrup...too much sugar for me :( I love breakfast for dinner too! I actually can't eat sweet stuff in the morning, so it is PERFECT for dinner.

Liesl said...

LOVE breakfast for dinner! We used to call it a backwards dinner growing up! So fun! :)

Miss Caitlin S. said...

it has been SO long since I had breakfast for dinner! this just created a longing in me to do it again soon. I love homemade pancakes. My Dad making them for us on Sundays was always a "thing" growing up and it still makes me so happy to think about.

I love BFD! It's usually a bi-weekly staple around here, like when I know I should cook, but I really don't want to put forth a lot of effort. Plus, breakfast is just the best!

Amanda said...

Sometimes breakfast for dinner is exactly what we all need. Maybe that's what M and I will have tonight, except we may need to pick up some bacon ;)
