    I use my sure fire Betty Crocker recipe for Buttermilk Pancakes on the weekends. They taste just like Bisquick pancakes without the added preservatives:

    Buttermilk Pancakes

    1 egg
    1 cup all-purpose flour*
    1 cup buttermilk
    1 tablespoon sugar
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    3 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    Beat egg until fluffy; beat in remaining ingredients just until smooth. Cook pancakes on hot griddle until puffed and dry around edges. Turn and cook other side until golden brown. Makes nine 4" pancakes.

    *If using self-rising flour, omit baking powder and salt.

    Apple Cider Syrup

    1/2 cup sugar
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    1 cup apple cider
    2 tablespoons butter
    1 apple peeled and chopped

    In medium sauce pan over medium heat combine first 5 ingredients. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils for 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in butter and apples.

    Makes about 2 cups

    Orange Butter

    1 cup butter, softened
    2 teaspoons finely shredded orange peel
    2 tablespoons orange juice

    In small bowl, beat butter, orange peel, and juice until well blended. Refrigerate to chill.

    mtblujeans, can you make the pancake batter the night ahead and allow it to sit in the fridge without it getting funky? I love to do this. It's so much easier to be able to just pour it out when you're half asleep. :teeth:

    That syrup sounds beyond divine. Oh yummy yummy yummy!!

    Here's one we really love here, and have for dinner sometimes too.

    Baked French Toast
    1/4 c. butter
    4 eggs
    2/3 c. milk
    1/3 c. sugar*
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    8 slices bread
    Vanilla, optional

    Melt butter in 10 x 15 pan in oven. Mix sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly into pan. Mix eggs and milk. Dip bread, soaking well. Bake at 400 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Let stand 1 minute. Lift out sugar side up on serving platter.

    NOTE: Use thick sliced French bread or Texas toast for best results.

    * I used brown sugar in my recipe to give it a richer taste. Very yummy and it didn't need any syrup or anything on it! We also chopped up some pecans, sprinkled them over the sugar, then laid the bread over all. Excellent, excellent, excellent.

    2 Tbl packed brown sugar
    1 Tbl baking powder
    1¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice

    ½ c LIBBY'S 100% Pure Pumpkin
    ¼ c water
    1 large egg

    Chopped nuts (optional)

    COMBINE flour, brown sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt in large bowl. Combine milk, pumpkin, water, egg and 2 tablespoons oil in small bowl; mix well. Add to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened; batter may be lumpy.

    HEAT griddle or skillet over medium heat; brush lightly with oil. Pour 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle; cook until bubbles begin to burst. Turn and continue cooking for 1 to 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with Pumpkin Maple Sauce and nuts.

    I had to run out this morning to take DD for yet another MRI so I didn't get to finish answering this.

    I often make my pancake batter the night ahead. Or - I make a double batch & do more on Sunday morning. It gets a bit thicker once it sits, but is fine that way. I make Jiffy/Bisquick pancakes more often than the pumpkin ones posted above & throw frozen blueberries in them. Yum!

    I love this recipe that someone posted on the board a couple years ago around Christmas. It's a do ahead recipe.

    Breakfast Casserole

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    1 Can crescent rolls*
    1 Roll sausage (use any flavor sausage, maple is very good)
    2 C shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    4 Eggs
    ¼ C milk
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Spread crescent rolls in 9x12 pan
    Fry sausage and drain, crumble and put on top of rolls
    Sprinkle cheese over sausage
    Mix eggs, milk, salt and pepper
    Pour egg mixture over cheese

    Bake at 350 for 20 - 30 minutes or until firm

    That's the way I copied the recipe...I forgot to note who originally posted it! Sorry I can't give credit!

    We do it a little differently. Instead of crescent rolls, I use the frozen, shredded potatoes - either OreIda or Giant brand. They might be called "hash browns" - I can't remember. :confused

    Anyway, I line the pan with the frozen potatoes & then layer as directed. However, I use 6 eggs instead of the 4 it calls for. We're not fond of the "clumps of meat coated in egg" consistency we got with only 4 eggs. And we always make it a point to get the maple flavored sausage...much better than the plain! :teeth:

    Thanks! :teeth:

    I've always liked to cook & bake, but most of my recipes were discovered because I get bored easily! :rotfl2: I get tired of things after a year or two & am always looking for new stuff to make! DH is happy with whatever I make, so I can't blame him! ;) I have to say that I wouldn't have nearly the collection I have if it weren't for the great people on this board!!

    Pumpkin Waffles

    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 eggs
    1 1/2 cups milk
    4 tablespoons butter, melted
    1/2 cup canned pumpkin

    Step 1:
    Set up the waffle iron on a countertop or table within easy reach of the cook. Plug in the iron to preheat it. (Remind your child never to touch the surface of the iron; she should touch only the handle and always cook with adult supervision.)

    Step 2:
    In a medium-size mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, melted butter, and pumpkin. Pour the wet ingredients over the flour mixture and stir just until combined.

    Step 3:
    Coat the preheated waffle iron with cooking spray. Pour the waffle batter onto the center of each section of the iron. (You will need 1/4 to 3/4 cup of batter for each waffle.)

    Step 4:
    Cook the waffles for about 4 to 5 minutes or until they are crispy and light brown. (Read the manufacturer's directions for details about how long you should cook the waffles in your particular waffle iron.) Serve immediately with maple syrup and butter. Serves 4.

    Then again...when my mother started working and had to leave earlier than my father she used to pour his Wheaties in a bowl, cover them with Syran Wrap and leave it on the counter for him - so all he had to do was pour the milk. :lmao: :lmao:

    She always said it was so he'd know she was thinking of him (everyone say "Awww") but to a 14 yr old it just sounded stupid! :lmao: Hey...you know, it still seems pretty dumb 40 yrs later! :lmao: :lmao:

    I sort of do the same thing for my dh. I put his bowl, a napkin and spoon and the box of cereal on the table for him at night so he just has to get the milk out in the morning. I know it sounds hokey but it is just one of the little things I do for him. He gets up so early and works such crazy hours and has never once in all the yrs expected me to get up with him. He actually insisted when we built our new home to have a dressing room area in the bathroom and walk in closet area built so he wouldnt have to turn the light on anywhere near the bed where I would be sleeping when he was dressing for work.
    Thank you for sharing your story about your mom. I loved it!!

    Quick Warm Blueberry Pancake Sauce

    2 1/2 cups fresh or individually frozen blueberries (not in juice)
    1/3 cup sugar
    1/2 cup orange juice
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    2 teaspoons lemon juice

    Combine the blueberries, sugar, and 1/4 cup of the orange juice in a medium-size saucepan. Warm the mixture over moderate heat, stirring it occasionally.

    While the berries heat, blend the cornstarch into the remaining orange juice, using the back of a spoon to dissolve any lumps.

    Increase the heat under the pan and bring the sauce to a boil. Stir the cornstarch mixture again and then stir it into the fruit. Cook the sauce at a low boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.

    Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the lemon juice. Cool the sauce for 5 to 10 minutes before serving (it will thicken as it cools). Makes about 2 cups.
