Its Breakfast Time

I have never been big on breakfast.  I use to not like eggs, pancakes, waffles, french toast, any of the normal breakfast items.  Weird, I know!!  Then I got pregnant and she changed everything.  One of the only things I craved when I was pregnant was pancakes from McDonalds.  I never even eat McDonalds so I have no idea where that came from.  Now she is an adorable little two year old and is obsessed with breakfast.  It is the only meal that I can get her to eat everything on her plate plus more.  Two of her favorite things in the world would be waffles/pancakes or yogurt.  So today we got to combine the two!!  We are making Greek Yogurt Pancakes on page 2 of the Dinnertime Pioneer Woman cookbook.  I hate to say this but this is another recipe gone wrong.

Greek Yogurt Pancakes

Husband Delicious Scale- 8 out of 10 for taste 5 out of 10 for texture

Delicious Scale- I’m going to agree with my husband, texture was weird

Prep Time- about 15 minutes, this was really quick and easy

Clean up was super easy

Super easy to make and it looked right during the mixing process

Once I placed them on the griddle they just kept on spreading.  Flipping them was an impossible task.  I don’t know how she always makes everything look so easy.  Back to being the messy cook that I know and love.IMG_3953

I wonder if flipping a pancake is like a milestone in culinary college because it definitely takes a certain finesse.  Clearly I don’t have it but I’m hoping to by the end of this challenge.  The flavor of these are actually really good but the texture is kind of spongey.  We would eat them again but definitely prefer regular pancakes.  My daughter really loved them though, she came back for seconds.  As for me, I don’t have cravings for pancakes anymore but if you place them in front of me I will eat them.  Especially with a side of bacon!! YUM!  Let me ask you this is there anything better then bacon?

This yogurt parfait can compete though.  This is not in my cookbook but I watched her make it on the Food Network and had to try it.  So you put some brown sugar on top of greek yogurt and leave it in the fridge for about 30 minutes.  IMG_3919

I layered that with granola and strawberries.  Yogurt parfaits are already delicious but this put it over the top.

So so good I would call this a dessert.  Something so simple really elevates that flavor and gives almost a caramel flavor.  Let me know if you have tried any new things with your parfaits I’m always looking for ways to change it up.

Happy Cooking!
