I love breakfast in all forms. Eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, waffles, hashbrowns...I think you get the point. Last week I couldn't think of anything quick to have for dinner over the weekend. Then I realized I had some bacon and eggs that needed to be made, and it hit me! Breakfast for dinner! Sometimes I think having breakfast at dinner time is better than eating it in the morning because I can sit down and enjoy it a little more.
To go with my eggs and bacon, I decided to make my all time favorite pancake recipe: Banana Oatmeal Pancakes
from Colorful Palate. I have always had trouble with cooking pancakes,
they never seem to get bubbly enough on top before starting to overcook
on the bottom. Then I met this recipe and everything changed. These
pancakes are fluffy and delicious and I have no trouble cooking them
perfectly every time. I think it has to do with the batter being a little thinner than other pancake recipes I have tried.
Cooking over easy eggs
always used to intimidate me. Then I learned an awesome trick from my
dad. First, crack the eggs and put them into a hot pan that has a lid.
Let the bottoms cook a little, then add a tiny bit of water to the pan
and cover with a lid. The water creates steam, which is trapped by the
lid, and that steam cooks the top of the eggs. No flipping necessary!
I eat the pancakes with a little drizzle of agave or honey. This meal may have to go into regular rotation :)
