Last night, I was at a loss for dinner ideas. Kendall desperately wanted pancakes. I bought an apple pancake mix from the The Apple Barn in Sevierville, TN last weekend, and he’s been begging me to make him some ever since I stepped off the plane.
Really, they were a “gift” for Scott. He makes the pancakes around here… on weekend mornings with the kids while I sleep in.
What? One time he gave me a panini grill for Christmas, okay? We’re not even remotely close to even yet.
But Scott was working late and the kids were famished. Even though I had zero other ideas, I wasn’t too excited, personally, about pancakes for dinner. I fried some eggs to add to our plates for a little protein… then thought, hmmmm, maybe I’ll just turn mine into a sandwich.
But I can’t have a sandwich without some sort of cheese on it, and I thought I really should add some sort of produce to this meal, even if just some sliced apples on the side….
Or on the sandwich! With goat cheese!
You want this, folks. You want it in your mouth now.
I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, some sort of culinary genius, but I was raised by a mother who has the ability to make SOMETHING out of nothing when it comes to food.
She was creative out of necessity in the kitchen when I was growing up, a single mom who worked several jobs at once. Every now and then ( not too often), a little bit of her creativity with meals comes through in me. Thanks, mom.
To recap, ingredients (makes one sandwich):
2 pancakes (I made apple pancakes from a mix. You could opt to use apple sauce in regular pancake mix.)
1 fried egg
1-2 tablespoons of crumbled goat cheese (If you’re not a fan of the cheese of goats, I think a sharp cheddar would be nice, too.)
2-3 slices of apple (I used a honey crisp.)
Smoosh and nom.
