Breakfast Tacos

February 18, 2011

The thought of ground meat at breakfast makes my stomach churn, but tacos stuffed with pancake batter? My kinda thing!

I invented pancake tacos way by when blurry photos were the cool thing to post ;) Crazy that I haven’t made them since 2008!!

All you do is flip them halfway over instead of all the way. Use a mix like Kodiak cakes that doesn’t have raw egg if you’re concerned about batter. And by the way, if you love batter, you’ll want to make these immediately!

I stirred about 1/4 a cup of pumpkin into the Kodiak cakes mix (used 1/2 a cup of mix for each of us). Toppings included banana, Nuts About Granola, chia seed sprinkles and Naturally Nutty Vanilla Almond Butter. Sweet!

I am VERY excited about today. It feels like a Friday in college because of the warm weather. Don’t know why! I’m hoping to take a half day and peel myself away from the computer after lunch to play with my husband around town.

Friday dance for sure!

When did you start? It’s amazing how far you’ve come in just 2 years really…only 10 comments at that time ;). Did it take a lot of time for your blog to really develop?

Breakfast tacos sound great — I love gooey batter. Too bad I never feel full from pancakes — I need eggs or oatmeal to keep me satisfied!

Go ahead and take the 1/2 day — I’m thinking of doing that too!

To feel full from pancakes, try adding some protein powder to your pancake batter and/or topping pancakes with nut butter and other fixins’.

I’ve been reading since then too! Sure doesn’t seem that long.

I have been feeling the same way. Even yesterday I kept feeling like it was that Friday afternoon springtime freedom!

I’m the exact opposite most days! Savory food sounds awesome to me in the morning. I could totally eat a hamburger for breakfast — and have! lol Tacos? Sure, why not!! :D

Whoa. Those look a awesome! I might be able to make them if they don’t include eggs!

Breakfast Tacos?! Those seriously look incredible! I want one!! :) I am so happy that’s Friday and it’s going to be warm out! It’s going to be torture sitting at my desk all day.

16 Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg February 18, 2011 at 10:44 am

These look so tasty– I’m a total batter lover, so I would be ALL about these.

Do you know I actually kind of remember the original pancake taco post? Kind of scary.

aw, i like seeing your blurry photos. reminds me of where you’ve come from and where you can go :).

18 Johanna B February 18, 2011 at 10:51 am

I, too, remember the original pancake taco post. They look good but I have a serious aversion to raw batter – even with no eggs. Hope to still be reading you for another few years.

19 Rachel ~ Dressed to Dish February 18, 2011 at 11:00 am

Wow those look amazing for breakfast! I can’t wait to try this…as I am one of those people who loves the batter! :)

20 Michelle @ Turning Over a New Leaf February 18, 2011 at 11:00 am

Wow, it’s amazing how people are different. May also be a regional thing, but I’ll take breakfast burritos with bacon, egg, and cheese (or chorizo, egg, and cheese…. or sausage, egg, and cheese) over pancakes any day. There’s a little burrito shop down the street from where I work and each amazing burrito made with fresh hand-made tortillas is 1.25. Love!

Isn’t it funny how you feel like you are in a certain time with temperatures and smells. It feels like 7th grade to me again with this weather. That’s when I moved to Georgia so I guess it was a pretty important time. Enjoy your day!

Pancake tacos are a cute idea! I really love breakfast tacos with egg, avacado, black beans and salsa. No meat necessary!

24 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat February 18, 2011 at 11:15 am

It’s warm here too but unfortunately I’m stuck in my window-less office! These breakfast tacos look amazing, especially with the colourful table mats!

25 Melissa @ HerGreenLife February 18, 2011 at 11:23 am

Friday dance for sure! Sounds like a great afternoon for some biking or hiking adventures. Now that I’m to my day off, it’s 20 degrees colder than the last two days when I was stuck in an office :( Still, 50 degrees and sunny is not bad for mid-February; I’ll definitely be out and about!

26 Ann @ Day By Day February 18, 2011 at 11:31 am

I love it- “It feels like a Friday in college.” It feels awesome here too- T-shirt weather! It’s a Friday in college for me and I need to enjoy it since this will be my last year to experience “Fridays in college.” Breakfast tacos look awesome and since I LOVE batter, I’m thinking I need to buy Kodiak mix when I’m home this weekend.

Those look amazing. I might make them for dinner….

Confession: I eat raw pancake batter. I know I know…BUT HOW CAN YOU NOT?

When I was younger I used to make pancake “burritos”! I’d take the eggs and bacon, put them in the middle of the pancake, roll it up and eat it…ok who am I kidding, I still do that :) yummo.

Oh, and I just wanted to add (again) that I’m LOVING all of the KERF redesign. I doubt you want to do this, but I bet you’d have a list of clients that would pay for you to revamp their blogs (me included).

Knowing how much time and effort you put into your blog makes me want to read KERF even more. It’s really neat to watch KERF evolve.

Have a wonderful, sunny weekend :)

42 KathEats February 18, 2011 at 3:08 pm

Thanks Hilary! I’d love to do more design stuff – if only I didn’t have the bakery looming on my horizons! But also, I’m really no expert. Just trial and error! I’d probably break other people’s blogs :)

This morning has felt like a spring quarter day in school – or a February thaw day from when I was back in school. I can almost feel the breeze in my hair climbing up the hill behind Ellis Hall, or walking outside Donkey Coffee with an iced coffee..

I love tacos and would love breakfast tacos like you made too. It’s like dinner for breakfast right. I often have breakfast for dinner so why not switch it up!

I love favorite recipes that originate from a supposed ‘mistake’ – those pancake tacos look delicious.

I haven’t yet! there are so many different kinds. Somestimes I get sick of sweet ones and move to salty then to crunchy then roasted then back to sweet!
