Breakfast for Supper!

Growing up, we had breakfast for supper often -- we loved it! I think my main motivation was getting to have cheese grits, and NOT having vegetables. :) I fix breakfast for supper for my family now for lots of reasons. It's easy, cheap, everybody likes it, it's healthy ... the list goes on. I've made the pancake recipe in this post a few times and everybody loves them. Tonight, Joe ate his own along with scrambled eggs, plus one of my pancakes, then one of Daddy's leftover pancakes!

Yummy Oat Pancakes

1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
1 egg
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons melted butter

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients and pecans if desired. In a small bowl, beat the egg, buttermilk, applesauce and butter; stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup half full to pour batter onto a lightly greased hot griddle; turn when bubbles form on top. Cook until second side is golden brown. Yield: 4 servings
