February is National Hot Breakfast Month!! *Wootwoot!* So to celebrate, Krusteaz is encouraging us to have breakfast for dinner once a week. We all know how putting dinner on the table every night can be stressful, so one way to ease this challenge is to serve up breakfast for dinner once a week.
To to help you celebrate National Hot Breakfast Month, Krusteaz is giving away a Breakfast Night Give-Away to one reader! You can find out more at the end of the recipe how!
The Breakfast Night Kit includes:
- 2 boxes of each the following breakfast mixes:
- Kitchen items including a whisk, a tote bag, and pancake batter pen
- A selfie stick, to help capture the fun!
Now that is a super, super great give-away, don’t you think?
I probably don’t even to twist your arm, besides breakfast for dinner has been popular ever since I can remember. I remember my mom said her mom would often make breakfast for dinner. She had 14 brothers and sisters, which is like whoa!! Right?
My mom would make pancakes for dinner as a special treat when dad would go out of town for business trips. She made the most amazing, vanilla simple syrup–that was too die for. It soaked the pancakes and with the most amazing vanilla flavor and it is my absolute favorite way to eat them.
You can not go wrong with good old-fashioned buttermilk pancakes, so I made those for our ‘breakfast for dinner’ and I also had an intense, hankering for some peanut butter pancakes.
I made those by adding in some peanut butter and vanilla extract to the pancake batter. The peanut butter adds a subtle nutty flavor to them, BUT…
To make it even more peanut buttery…I made a super easy 2-ingredient peanut butter maple syrup and if you’re feeling a little daring, add some chocolate chips, raspberry or strawberry preserves, chocolate syrup and/or whipped cream! These are great with just maple syrup too.
The pancakes were so light and fluffy, just the way you would expect. 🙂 Soo good! They are great for refrigerating and freezing for later and I always make extra for this reason.
Btw..I want to mention that I used a a non-stick T-fal Fry Pan that was provided to use with the Krusteaz products. It rocked! You can stock up by purchasing at your nearest Target and target.com from Feb 27th – March 3rd in honor of Pancake Day!
