"I grew up on a farm where a big breakfast was an everyday occurrence," relates Kathy Scott of Hemingford, Nebraska. "Still, it was a special treat when Mom served this scrumptious syrup with our pancakes."
It's a breeze to simmer up this cinnamony syrup that nicely coats a skillet full of breakfast sausages. "I often serve them to guests along with French toast and fruit compote," shares Trudie Hagen of Roggen, Colorado.
"My daughter is a vegetarian, so I eliminated the ham called for in the original recipe," informs Vicki Schrupp from Little Falls, Minnesota. "Wedges of this healthy quiche make a fast and flavorful brunch, lunch or supper."
Who has time to make from-scratch pancakes and homemade syrup? You do, thanks to this easy recipe from Joan Baskin. "My husband and I enjoy these pancakes with crisp bacon or sausages on the side," she notes from Black Creek, British Columbia. "Sometimes we even have them for supper."
"This wonderfully moist brunch dish can be made a day early and stored in the refrigerator to save time," reports Kim Hafner of East Walpole, Massachusetts. "Loaded with zucchini, herbs and cheese, it goes well with croissants and fresh fruit."
This is a great way to get the kids to eat nourishing fruit during the candy-laden Halloween season. They can even help cut up the apples and grapes with plastic knives and decide how they want their fancy orange to look!—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
Is your family tired of the same old breakfast pancakes? If so, try this recipe! Brown sugar wakes up your taste buds while oats add stick-to-your-ribs texture to carry you through lunchtime. These pancakes are so nicely sweet they don't need syrup...and they're a fun way to get kids to eat oats.
