This week we celebrated fall and the return to school with a special breakfast night. We tend to eat breakfast for dinner at least one night a week because it’s a family favorite — plus, it’s easy, especially with Krusteaz’s pancake and waffle mixes. Apparently, we are not alone. A recent survey showed that 30% of families make Breakfast Night a weekly occurrence.
The reason this breakfast night was special is because I was in a celebratory mood and this particular breakfast was more like dessert. You can skip the cinnamon swirl and the cream cheese cinnamon roll frosting and just go with the pumpkin pancakes and I’m sure they’ll still be a hit. Or you can do as I did and fancy them up a bit!
1 1/2 cups Krusteaz pancake mix
1 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
1 large egg
1 Tbsp brown sugar, packed
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp Vanilla
3/4 cup canned or pureed pumpkin (or fresh cooked)
1/2 cup water*
*my mix was a little too thick so I ended up thinning it out a little by adding a little more water.
If you want to get fancy, you can get the recipe for the cinnamon swirl and the cream cheese “syrup” from Recipe Girl. And I suggest you do because these pancakes were to die for! She gives very specific directions but there is still some trial and error to perfecting your Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes if you want them to look pretty.
Next week I think I am going to try Pancake Turnovers:
1 package Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix
- Prepare Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix as directed
- Pour batter onto griddle and sprinkle each pancake with 1 TBSP granola
- Cook as directed
- Let cool slightly and fill with your favorite yogurt fruit and more granola
- Fold and enjoy
If your family enjoys breakfast nights, why not pick a night of the week to have them? Maybe you do Taco Tuesday. Make Wednesdays breakfast night! Your family will look forward to it every week and it makes menu planning easy! Be sure to stock the pantry with Krusteaz pancake and waffle mixes!
