Who doesn’t love pancakes and waffles? I am not a huge hot breakfast fan, but I do enjoy my pancakes or waffles. I realize that they don’t take that long to cook, but on some mornings we are especially rushed and don’t have time to sit down and eat. That’s why I was all over trying the new Pillsbury Heat-N-Go Pancakes and Waffles. The pancakes are available in two flavors, Maple Burst’n and Blueberry, and the waffles are available in Maple Madness. They have the flavor baked in so there is no syrupy mess and they can be eaten on the go. Since they are individually wrapped in a microwavable pouch, everyone can have the flavor or variety of their choice and I don’t have a bunch of leftovers that go to waste. Plus, they are ready in seconds. Yes, seconds, because sometimes that is all I have. Did I happen to mention that each serving has 14 grams of whole grain, 0 grams of trans fat and no high fructose corn syrup? That makes me feel even better about serving them to the family. It doesn’t hurt that the kids like the taste of them too. I also like the Heat N Go guarantee; if you are unsatisfied with the product you can get your money back.
If you have extra time you can get creative with the pancakes. How about placing a small sausage patty and half a slice of cheese between the Maple Burst’n pancakes? It’s a filling on the go meal that the kids can wrap in a napkin and take with them. Another idea is making a pancake centipede. Place six pancakes on a plate so they are slightly overlapping. Add two blueberries for eyes and a small line of syrup for the mouth and for the antenna. Need more inspiration? Make a pancake crab. Use three mini pancakes. Cut two of the mini pancakes in half. Place one pancake in the center of the plate and arrange two half pancakes on either side for claws. Add blueberries for eyes and syrup for antenna.
