Weekend Breakfast

Had the realization this week I have become quite the expert in what to cook for dinner and lunch – but breakfast, definitely leaves much to be desired.  While I’ve yet to pick the few I’ll test out, wanted to share some of my finds.  What are your go-to’s when you’re looking for something a little different?

Faux Pancakes + Real Apples (for Dinner)

A few years ago, I stumbled upon Bethenny Frankel’s turkey burger recipe and it is a definite hit for company.  What I didn’t know about, until earlier this week, was her recipe for a “faux pancake.”  It is probably one of the easiest things to whip up for a weeknight dinner.  In fact, it was so delicious and quick to make, we didn’t even have time to take a picture!  The maple syrup in this recipe never fails to be that perfect comfort as the weather gets colder.  We paired our pancakes with a green salad and a chopped apple.  I think next time, we might try it with the apple on top of the pancake instead!

Some notes

  • I used 2 fresh egg whites, and 1 egg – because that’s what I had in the house.  Per her recipe, liquid egg whites will also work – but I wouldn’t substitute the 1 whole egg.
  • I used raw sugar, not sweetener.
  • Instead of cooking spray, I used 1/4 tsp. of Earth Balance butter for each pancake (I was told years ago that cooking spray on non-stick pans can ruin the surface)
