The Breakfast Vegetable


This morning El Chaperone the Einstein of Pancakery made Sweet Potato Pancakes from the mix I bought at SuperTarget in Atlanta. A kick-ass source of betacarotene, the Bruce's mix is high fibre, low fat, low cholesterol, blah blah blah.

Sheena loves exotic pancakes, but never orders them out in restaurants. They are a home cooking thing. If I'm going to spend money eating out, there has to be meat. Otherwise it's a rip.

Previous pancake successes have included Alberta's pride Coyote Pancake Mix, the mortar of choice for firewall construction, and available at Safeways up until Thunder Bay. Utter resolute failure in the form of Williams & Sonoma Egg Nog Pancake and Waffle Mix both from price point and fake tasting flavour.





The Sweet Potato pancakes were a bit gluey, but very very flavourful. A touch of cinnamon added in the mix created a nice homey scent in the air as they were cooking. Only downside: the package of mix only made a measly four medium sized pancakes. Enough, but not going to last us until dinner like a mess of Coyotes often will...

Sheena... All Good Canadians know that Bisquick is the only acceptable choice for pancakes outta da box. If you're feeling exotic, a little pemmican sprinkled on top will conjure up breakfast under the Big Sky. Enjoy!
