Loaded Pancakes

I've been trying to find some new breakfast ideas for Mr. Dinner's on Me. He rides the bus so early in the morning and isn't usually hungry until later (when the rest of the normal population is eating too.)
I was talking to one of my sisters last week and she shared this great breakfast idea. I was skeptical at first, but we tried it today and it was delicious.

note: I added a recipe to my "Week 18 Recipes." It's called Creamy Scalloped Potatoes. It's easy, delicious and gets better and better everyday as leftovers.

Loaded Pancakes

from Heidi Folsom

Shredded hash browns (with onions & peppers optional)
crumbled bacon
shredded cheese
pancake batter (recommended: Lehi Roller Mills)


(Thaw hash browns, or microwave for a minute). Gather ingredients nearby so they are all ready to go.

On a skillet, place a bit of butter then a scant 1/4 cup of hash browns. Top with about 1 tsp of bacon crumbles, and about 1 tsp of shredded cheese. Top with just enough pancake batter to cover. Cook until browned on bottom and then carefully flip to pancake side. Cook until done. Flip back to hash brown side if necessary.

note: These re-heat well. The loaded pancake tastes great on its own, but also good with salsa. Mr. D.o.M. is taking these on the bus in the morning for a quick breakfast-on-the-go.
