Suzanne's famous pancakes are already listed in the kitchen area here on the site, so <a href="http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=88704click[/url] here to see them!">click here</a> to see them!

TIP! Use unsalted butter for the syrup and also for the pancakes (though it's not as big a deal) if you make this sweet version. You can leave the sugar and cinnamon out and put in chopped green onions, crumbled bacon or sausage, diced peppers etc and savory seasonings if you want a new slant on these. They are fantastic cold or reheated as a snack later on in the day and work great as sandwich "bread" especially for breakfast type sandwiches with eggs, cheese or meat.

I like to have the sweet ones with a sprinkling of cinnamon/Splenda, made just like cinnamon sugar. Hubby prefers them with SF maple syrup.
