A long weekend isn't complete without a family-style breakfast (or brunch-you never know, the kids might sleep in) that includes all the fixings. Here are five pancake recipes that will add extra sizzle or sweetness to your family's breakfast table.
1. Family-Style Grilled Pancake
Save flipping a couple dozen flapjacks for another day and try out this deep-dish all-in-one pancake. Made with Compliments Original Complete Pancake & Waffle Mix and a few tasty extras (vanilla, cinnamon, honey, and pecans).
2. Bacon Pancake Fingers
Are you in the classics camp, all the way? Here's a hot tip: Turn regular pancakes and bacon into a family-friendly finger food! Pour pancake batter onto the griddle in long slim ovals, then press a cooked slice of bacon into the batter before flipping. Let's call it classic-with a twist.
3. Nashville-Style Hot Chicken Pancakes
Whether you're a savoury family or you just feel like breakfast for dinner, these pancakes will deliver. Made with Compliments Original Complete Pancake & Waffle Mix, shredded rotisserie chicken and smoky spices, they're best served with a drizzle of hot sauce, hot honey, or maple syrup.
4. Apple & Hemp Seed Pancakes
Apple season may technically be over, but this fruit of the fall harvest lasts all the way through winter and is an easy way to inject something new into your usual pancake breakfast. (Our Compliments Naturally Simple Hulled Hemp Seeds are a source of omega-3 polyunsaturates and iron.)
5. Cannoli Pancakes
If your family prefers sweet treats for brunch, this is the dessert pancake to end all dessert pancakes. Ricotta cheese brings a soft and airy texture, chocolate chips bring richness, and graham crumbs and orange zest deliver that irresistible finish.
