Sometimes when I’ve not planned well or couldn’t get to the grocery store even though I really need something for dinner, I settle on breakfast. I cook it up normally when I’m desperate and usually if we had weekend plans that kept us from our normal Saturday or Sunday morning indulgence. After making nighttime breakfast once or twice, hubby asked me to add it to my dinner repertoire. Just because they love it so! Flipping hotcakes at night has gotten me out of a dinner jam or two, but on top of that, I don’t have to go through the normal pickiness about who’s not going to eat what and why.
I planned a breakfast supper last week and decided to top my pancakes with some wonderful apple butter sauce. I had reserved the sauce from fresh steamed apples I’d made with Rotiserrie chicken, green beans and rolls on another night. Oh, what a delight! The apple butter sauce comes from butter, brown sugar and cinnamon used to season the apples while steaming. My apples are alot like those at Boston Market, but their homemade and taste better. Anyway, the leftover apple butter sauce ends up with bits of cooked apples and a yummy sweet taste that is just perfect for pancakes (and biscuits if you’re at the Brooks residence). It was a dinner that left everyone patting their full tummies and smiling.
Do you have a dish or dessert that’s a sinful delight?
