In El Dorado, Arkansas, Dorothy Smith uses one oatmeal mixture in three tasty ways. For breakfast, savor a stack of pleasant pancakes, or spread warm muffins with butter, honey or jam. For dessert, a golden fruit crisp offers old-fashioned flavor with the ease of canned pie filling.
My kids love sausage and pancakes but making them during the week was out of the question. I purchased the frozen variety on a stick but didn't like the calories, additives or price. This version of pigs-in-a-blanket is a great alternative that's much more cost effective.—Lisa Dodd, Greenville, South Carolina
"Our family enjoys these unique pancakes as often as possible," relates Kathi Duerr from Fulda, Minnesota. Loaded with sausage and apple, the filling flapjacks are especially yummy with the spiced cider syrup.
"This is a downsized version of a recipe that belonged to my husband's mother and has been in their family for 80 years," shares Myrna Gerson of Staten Island, New York. "My husband and I got married 30 years ago, and I've been making these griddle cakes ever since."
You'd never guess there's bran in these moist, tasty pancakes that are drizzled with a sweet orange sauce. "My children are grown, but they still request this for breakfast when they come home," writes Marie Cockerham of Rock Hill, South Carolina. Your family will surely flip over these flapjacks, too!
My son and I like to make this breakfast favorite together. You can leave the berries out of the mix and sprinkle them on top, or sub in chocolate chips or nuts instead. —Elizabeth Stewart, Crab Orchard, West Virginia
