Sanders’ great idea. This was originally intended to be eaten in taco form, but we are simply too refined here…*cough*
In all reality this was an unexpectedly wonderful combination of flavors:
Pancakes (Vanilla, cinnamon, oats, normal pancake shiz)
Scrambled eggs (Basil, garlic powder, salt, pepper)
Red bell peppers and onions (Thyme, oil)
Topped with mexican blend cheese and drizzled honey (forgot syrup…)
I know what you’re thinking: this is a stretch. That’s what we were thinking too, hunched over the stove with every burner aflame, stirring and tossing and flipping furiously to ensure each element finished at the same time…but there was no turning back. With all this hype, we’re gonna eat it. And even if we don’t like it, damn it, we’re gonna like it.
Turns out it was a beautiful disaster. The basil and thyme gave the eggs and vegetables a slightly sweet, natural taste, which coincided perfectly with the earthy heartiness of the oats and cinnamon in the pancakes. The best part, though, was that the honey was pure sweet and the cheese was pure savory…yet somehow these two flavors conceded rather than clashed.
So, we ate the reconciled flavor pairing and started the day off right. I’m not sure if we’ll ever be able to pull this off again, but at least we’ll always have it in our dreams…….
