Halloween Party Breakfast
30 October 2011
Jack-o-Latern Pumpkin Pancake. We used a whole wheat pancake mix (Hodgson Mill). To the mix we added 1/2 can of pumpkin, 1 t. pumpkin pie spice, 1 T sugar, and 1/2 t. vanilla. You can do the same with your favorite pancake mix. We have also subbed whole wheat for white in multiple pancake recipes- it works fine but you will likely need to use less flour than called for. We also added extra milk to get a thinner consistency.
To make the Jack-o-Lantern we (and when I say "we" I mean my husband) used a technique that we learned from Jim from Jim's Pancakes when he was on the Rachel Ray Show. You can see the clip here.
My husband put the batter into a ketchup bottle. He drew the outside shape, stem and face first. After it cooked for about 20 seconds, he then filled in the rest of the pumpkin with more batter.
Turkey Sausage Mummys We cooked the sausage first and then cut strips of crescent rolls which we wrapped around the sausage. Finally, we added two crescent roll balls as eyes. We cooked them at 350 for about 10 minutes.
Scrambled eggs with cheese, spinach, and red peppers.
