Anything better on a Sunday Morning than Pancakes?

It's Sunday morning and I woke up with pancakes on my mind. I haven't had them in awhile, so the question is, what kind to make? Lovely, lighter than air short stack with plenty of melting butter and warm maple syrup...... Or a beautiful poufy German Pancake with a squeeze of fresh lemon and a light dusting of powdered sugar? Blueberry? Buckwheat? Corn Griddle cakes? They are all so good! I'm wondering if any of you have ever had a Roumanian Pancake with grated sharp cheddar cheese and powdered sugar or with apple butter? What are the CH's cooking up for breakfast on this beautiful Sunday morning that the Lord has made?

  1. I love Sunday morning breakfast, the only day of the week that we cook breakfast. Preferring savory to sweet I only make pancakes or french toast 2-3 times a year.

    This morning we had lamb sausage, biscuits and gravy.

    Sausage strata or cheese toast, grits and bacon are other favorites.

    This lamb sausage came from a CSA operation we just discovered and it was really good. Can't wait to make a strata with some more of it.

    1. It's always a debate at our house between pancakes and thick cut bacon or sausage gravy and biscuits on Sunday mornings:-)

      1. Biscuits, Smoked Sausage, Steen's Cane Syrup, Homemade pear preserves. Home squeezed mator juice...Coffee

            That sounds delicious magiesmom. I went with the German Pancake!

        2. All of those pancakes sound delicious! I'll have to look into the Roumanian pancake. Since we are using up left over ham, it has been ham, eggs, toast with butter and homemade peach jam. Today we splurged with biscuits and gravy. I usually like French Toast for a lazy Sunday AM breakfast. The Huz prefers pancakes.

            Roumanian pancakes are my family heritage. They are tender crepes with the shredded cheese inside, all melty, then rolled up with the confectioners sugar on top. Seriously addictive!

          2. This morning 'twas a very restrained mushroom omelette with a slice of bread.

            I do enjoy a fuller breakfast - sausage, eggs, bacon, black pudding, mushrooms, fried bread - but that's taxing my cooking skills so it's only for the rare occasions when I have breakfast out. The greasier the greasy spoon place, the better.

              I love mushroom omelette, especially with cheese! What is black pudding?

                A sausage made from pigs blood, oatmeal, pork fat and seasoning.

                They're sold already cooked so only need warming through (simmered if eating whole, fried if in slices or chunks).
