Blueberry Protein Breakfast
Add Protein to Pancakes
Kick up the protein from simply adding an egg and/or sausage to pancakes prepared from a box mix. The protein from a pancakes box mix serving amounts to about 4 grams. Add an egg with another 6 grams. Add another 3 grams by including half a sausage patty. The protein in the pancake foldover will then equal approximately 13 grams. One cup of blueberries for the whole recipe only amounts to 1.1 grams.
Pancakes and syrup always go together. The foldover tastes great without the syrup. But if the extra dip-in-the-syrup sweetness seems better to you, go for it. I tried the foldover both ways but prefer it with no syrup.
Four options for the Blueberry Pancake, Egg, and Sausage Foldover are:
- make it with only the egg
- make it with only the sausage
- make it plain without blueberries
- serve it plain with blueberries on the side
This recipe was a fun and tasty creation. It made me think of a funny story my daughter told me about my toddler granddaughter. She LOVES pancakes. One morning my daughter made her some special ones cooked with blueberries. My granddaughter looked down at the plate and started crying. She didn’t like the berries in her pancakes. When I was visiting, I made some pancakes one day and added blueberries to some of them but made sure she had her share with no berries. She really wanted another pancake after she finished all of hers so she tried one with the blueberries and did not like it.
