I like prep ahead breakfast ideas because of that chaos. Now, I am sure this has been done 100 times before but, I just looked at the new pans I bought and thought to myself, “Let’s see what I can dome up with.” This is a completely versatile recipe and you can put whatever you want in it. This is how I made it and it was absolutely mouth-watering.

I am a little late getting this Potato Pancake recipe post up. When I posted my photo to Instagram, it should have gone up the next day. Sadly, I became sick and did not do much else other than sleep. I apologize for making you wait but trust me, it was worth it!
Leftovers are not usually a thing in our home. I already seem to cook for an army of boys and they don’t leave anything behind. I always seem to make way more mashed potatoes than I need, for 6 people. While I am not a big fan of regular pancakes, I love potato pancakes but, I have never tried to make them before. Wait, probably because there are never any left over. Well, I lucked out. The boys graciously left me a ton so, my attempt at it was born.
I am so glad that I decided to go ahead and do these. They are absolutely delicious. The chives are an amazing flavor in these. If you love baked potatoes, you will love these Potato Pancakes. It is a quick and easy breakfast to throw together. I don’t recommend making these in advance. They are best served fresh and slightly crispy. If left in the fridge over night, they lose the crisp. If you don’t mind that, by all means, cook ahead!
The kids can definitely get involved making these too. Royal loves to flip the breakfast. Whether it’s pancakes or french toast, he always gets in there and wants to do it. Hopefully he will grow up to have the same love for cooking, and baking, as I do.

I am not much of a breakfast eater, except French Toast. I know that is a bad thing but, I just can’t eat at 6:30 in the morning. The kids however, can eat allllllll daaaaay long. Finding things to make in big batches can be a Pinterest scavenger hunt. Pancakes take forever for 6 people and I am not really a pancake fan. French toast, on the other hand, I can eat until I explode.
In an effort to fry less food, and still make it delicious, I have turned to baking a lot of things. I also look for new ways to trick the kids into thinking they are eating more when in fact, they are eating a normal sized portion. I made regular french toast awhile back. The older boys ate 8 slices and the younger boys ate 6. That is a little much in my book. I can barely eat 4.
Since the baked whole pieces worked so well, I decided to make French Toast Sticks for a little trickery. The only thing that I am changing about the recipe is the bread. I used regular white bread, and this is fine but, several pieces fell apart. I recommend using Texas Toast bread. It will hold up much better when you have to flip them over. read the rest of this entry »
Growing up in Texas, there are some things you learn at a young age: which snakes are poisonous, what to do in case of a tornado, and that canned chili is like salsa from New York City – it’s just not done! With this thought in mind, you can imagine how my family reacted when I told them I was using Wolf Brand Chili instead of homemade for the first Frito Pie of Fall. For those who don’t know Frito Pie, it’s pretty much like it sounds: a base of corn chips and chili with whatever toppings sound good that day. We generally stick with the basics of onions, cheese and sour cream, but have been known to add salsa, corn, or anything else that happens to be in the refrigerator.
