Thrive Pancakes or Aebleskiver?

I love breakfast foods! Of all kinds and at anytime of the day.  Some days, after I get home from work, and haven't planned anything ahead of time I'll ask my guys if they want Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner? Then I'll make a meal that you might normally have during that time frame.  Last night was BREAKFAST.

Since we love pancakes and I love kitchen gadgets it was Aebleskiver night.  These can be sweet or savory.  Using Thrive 6 Grain Pancake Mix makes it even better.  The 6 grains consists of red wheat flakes, white wheat flakes, barley flakes, rye flakes, rolled oats, sunflower seeds. This is not your typical thick hard to eat "just because it's good for you" grain pancake mix, this is actually very good.  Vary reasonable priced as well! 

I use this mix and add whipped egg whites to give it some more lightness when I'm doing a sweet version, and I don't bother if it is a savory filling. The egg whites are not necessary. Do what you like best.

Thrive Aebleskivers

3 Cups Thrive 6 Grain Pancake Mix
2 1/2 Cups Water
1 T Baking Powder (I learned this from Misty Marsh)
2 Egg Whites, whipped to soft peak stage

Blend the Mix and Baking Powder, then add the water mixing very well with a whisk or fork. Leave the batter to sit for 10 min while you whip the egg whites and organize whatever you would like to use for fillings.

After batter has rested carefully fold in the egg whites.

 Make sure your Aebleskiver pan it medium hot.  A few drops of oil or a dab of butter should be added to each well for each batch.  I use butter for the sweet fillings.

Fill each well almost to the top with batter. 

Then drop in a small amount of filling, usually about a teaspoon full.

Tonight I used Blackberry Jam (pictured right), Nutella, Thrive Ham Dices (hydrated) & Thrive Cheddar Cheese (hydrated). Noooo not all at the same time! You can use what ever your heart desires and you don't mind eating in the middle of a pancake puff. 

Once they are done they can are ready to eat or you can dust them with powdered sugar, drizzle with syrup (maple, caramel, chocolate) or ??? Use your own creativity and enjoy!

Just a reminder .. anytime you buy Thrive Food buy the case (6 cans of the same product) you save an additional 5%! Makes breakfast night an even better deal.

If you don't have an Aebleskiver pan I don't see any reason you can't still make it fun!

The more we can save money, feed our families nutritious food, prepare ourselves and our friends and neighbors the better off we ALL are.
