Mac & Cheese + Pancakes = ???


Mac&CheesePancakes - M


O – M – G.  I was very suspicious of this recipe at first.  I thought it was a totally weird idea, like Caroline’s PB and Pickles sandwich, but if you know me at all, you know that I LOVE macaroni and cheese and I LOVE pancakes…

 Side note: I went through a phase when I was seven years old where I would eat my Annie’s Mac and Cheese one shell at a time.  Ya know, so it would last longer.   Patty was really concerned about me during that phase.  That was the beginning of my addiction.  She actually got mad at me and said I would be grounded if I didn’t eat it normally.  (I could be embellishing the story but that’s how I remember it.)

Anyways, when I saw this recipe I thought I MUST try it.  My two favorite foods come together in one dish!  They were incredible.  It was definitely an amazing experience.  They wouldn’t be my normal go to brunch recipe, but it was something fun to try!

Here is the recipe…
