Bake something inexpensive and different for breakfast!
This is based on a recipe from Erin Chase at $5 Dinners (she has a cookbook out called "The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook that is filled with $5 dinners) that she got from the Carnation Holiday baking book and went over very well and there were no leftovers. I can't say it is really a pancake - the consistency is somewhere between a quiche or flan and a pancake with a pear custard sort of flavor that was delicious.
