I have the same problem. I can only make about 4 pancakes at a time and it seems to take forever. Then DS finds them and poof they're gone. I almost think it would be easier to just make them on the day of... Maybe if I buy another skillet and use the electric skillet and get all the burners going...

Boy! You sound like me. The only trouble is that I would have something happen where I would have to help one of the kids or DH, and I would burn all of the panfuls. I would definitely like to get one of the large, flat, electric skillets though.

My brother-in-law got us a griddle for Christmas last year and I it!! It takes not time to make pancakes in the morning, grilled cheeses are a snap as well. DH uses it for just about anything. I would recommend getting one to anyone that likes pancakes.

Speaking of pancakes...does anyone have a wannabe bisquick mix recipe? I have been using another one forever and dh decided that he wanted me to make them from scratch now . So I now need to find a cool recipe.

LuvMyFF, I got this recipe off the Top Secret Recipes website (http://www.topsecretrecipes.com). Todd Wilbur comes out with a new recipe each week. Most of them are so close to the original that you can't tell a difference. Hope this works for you. :p

Top Secret Recipes
version of
Bisquick® Baking Mix
by Todd Wilbur


You've got a hankerin' for pancakes but you've run out of Bisquick. Not to worry. Now you can make a clone of the popular baking mix at home with just four simple ingredients. Store-bought Bisquick includes shortening, salt, flour and leavening, so that's exactly what we need to duplicate it at home. This recipe makes about 6 cups of the stuff, which, just like the real thing, you can keep sealed up in a container in your pantry until it's flapjack time. Then you just add milk and eggs for pancakes or waffles, or only milk if it's biscuits you want.

4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup shortening
1. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Add shortening and mix with an electric mixer on medium speed until all shortening is blended with the flour.
3. Use the mix as you would the real thing by following directions on the box (see Tidbits). (http://www.topsecretrecipes.com)
Makes 6 cups.

Tidbits :
Here are recipes to help you make Pancakes, Waffles and Biscuits using the cloned version of the mix as you would the real thing:

Pancakes: Stir 2 cups Bisquick clone mix with 1 cup milk and 2 eggs in a bowl until blended. Pour 1/4 cup portions onto a hot griddle. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until golden. Makes 14 pancakes.

Waffles: Stir 2 cups Bisquick clone mix with 1 1/3 cups milk, 1 egg, and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a bowl until blended. Pour onto hot waffle iron. Bake until the steaming stops. Makes 12 4-inch waffles.

Biscuits: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Stir 2 1/4 cups Bisquick clone mix with 2/3 cup milk. When dough forms, turn it out onto a surface sprinkle with extra mix. Knead 10 times. Roll dough 1/2-inch thick. Cut with 2 1/2-inch cutter. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 9 biscuits.

I've been thinking there must be a cheaper alternative to Bisquick for a long time. Thank you Memorymkr. I'm going to try that recipe.

looking for breakfast casserole

A former coworker of mine used to make a layered casserole for our brunch parties and I loved it! It had bread on the bottom, then egg, cheese, and some veggies in there somewhere. No meat. Sound familiar to anybody who might have a similar recipe? Thanks, dawny

Thank You memrymaker for the bisquick recipe and including the waffle recipe, I was looking for a easy waffle recipe from ingredients I have in the house, this should do the trick.

reply to OAMC Breakfast ideas

Have you seen www.mrbreakfast.com? The link Super Index has hundreds of breakfast recipies--many can be frozen.

Our favorites? Carrot French Toast, Cowboy fritattas, crockpot granola cassarole, Peach and Blueberry Breakfast Pie, Orange Breakfast Rolls and Sunrise Delight. I freeze these, and several of the different Pancake recipies.

The site has alot of granola and other homemade "cold cereal" that we like. Honey Maple Grape Nuts and Fruity Granola are two favorites.

My children's favorite breakfast in the summer is Muffins (doesn't matter what kind), homemade yogurt with granola mixed in and a fruit shake or fruit smoothie. (this site has those too)

Winter favorite breakfast is Pancakes/waffles/cinamon rolls or hot cereal and a glass of grape juice.

Hope this gives you somewhere to look.
