Breakfast for Dinner

Sometimes I just love to eat breakfast foods at night for dinner.  It's quick, delicious and can be served a variety of ways.  Try these recipes for a pancake dinner at your home.

Pizza Pancakes

  •  2 c. biscuit baking mix                                   
  • ¼ c. diced green onion
  • 2/3 c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese          
  • ½ c. diced tomatoes
  • 2 tsp. Italian-style seasoning                          
  • ¼ c. diced green bell pepper
  • ½ c. diced red bell pepper                              
  • ¼ c. pizza sauce
  • ¼ c. sliced pepperoni sausage                        
  • ½ c. milk
  • ½ c. nonfat sour cream                                   
  • 2 eggs, beaten

In a large bowl, combine baking mix, cheese, Italian-style seasoning, red bell pepper, pepperoni, green onion, tomatoes and green bell pepper.

In a separate bowl, stir together pizza sauce, milk, sour cream and eggs.  Stir egg mixture into flour/vegetable mixture until all flour is moistened.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.  Spoon the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1 Tbsp. for each pancake.  Brown on both sides and serve hot with warm pizza sauce and cheese.



Old Timey Pancakes


  •  ¾ c. milk                                                        
  • 2 Tbsp. white vinegar
  •  c. all-purpose flour                                      
  • 2 Tbsp. white sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder                                     
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt                                                       
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted                                    
  • Cooking spray

Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to "sour".

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl.  Whisk egg and butter into "soured" milk.  Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray.  Pour ¼ cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface.  Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.


Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes

  •  1 c. uncooked rolled oats                               
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 c. whole wheat flour                                               
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ c. all-purpose flour                                     
  • 2 c. milk
  • ¼ c. brown sugar                                            
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp. dry milk powder                                
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. baking powder                                     
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • ½ tsp. baking soda

Place the rolled oats into the jar of a blender and blend until the texture resembles coarse flour.  Whisk together the blended oats, whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, dry milk powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; set aside.

Whisk together the egg, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla.  Stir in the mashed banana.  Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir just until moistened.  Let the batter stand for 5 minutes.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat.  Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle, and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, about 2 minutes.  Flip, and cook until browned on the other side.  Repeat with remaining batter.
