with a big spoonful of batter and another side by side
Cook until lightly browned and flip,
again cook until lightly browned
This recipe should make you 6 medium size light and fluffy pancakes
In Taos I purchased the Smokey Tasso Ham at Manzanita Market, (Cid’s Grocery Store also carries this product), Pomegranates are seasonal, the Maple Syrup was purchased in LeClaire, Iowa from a small producer who turns up at the local farmer’s market there from time to time. This combination of the sweet, smokey and acidic trio here were a perfect compliment and a lovely way to begin any day, especially this Thanks-Living (Thanksgiving) Holiday.
PS: As some of you may know my niece is a Food Writer, her writing is under the pseudonym Top With Cinnamon, follow her online at her Website, Facebook and Instagram feeds, she is currently working on her second cookbook. We recently visited London where she took us to a restaurant called Duck Soup, there I had pancakes of Polenta with Honey and Ricotta on top. This recipe is inspired by that breakfast. Thanks Izy and family.
