Not so vegan "eggie cakes"
So this one is a total throwback to my childhood. I have been told that my grandfather used to make it for my dad and then my parents made it for me. I like it because its warm and sweet and has all the memories of being a kid wrapped up in it. Also I love real maple syrup on breakfast.
Basically you make pancake batter (however you like it). Then you are put it in a hot greased pan (we grease with coconut oil these days for pancakes). The secret is leaving a hole in the middle for the egg to be placed into. You let the pancake cook for a few minutes and then add the egg when the pancake is almost ready to be flipped. This gives the egg just enough time to settle and you don't burn the pancake. Then you flip the egg and cook for another two or three minutes, depending on how brown you like your eggie cakes.
Add earth balance and maple syrup and watch your family and yourself smile!
On this lovely day I was feeling extra inspired and I also made home-fries. For these I typically boil the potatoes for about 10 minutes. Then I chop them into bite sizes and add them to a pan of caramelized onions. They cook for about 15 minutes more and then are served hot with ketchup!
