I’m certain you know how important breakfast is…how it’s the most important meal of the day…how it helps children do better in school and sets the precedent for healthy eating habits. Breakfast is also my favorite meal of the day. Most days I eat a bowl of cereal or oatmeal due to time constraints. But on weekends, we have pancakes and eggs and orange juice.
Growing up, my mom made pancakes using Bisquick. Today we still use Bisquick, albeit the Heart Smart version, for pancakes. I like my pancakes on the thick and fluffy side, which is just how they turn out with Bisquick. Plus, when I want a quick breakfast, I can make these with ease.
Have you ever been to a pancake breakfast? Many non-profit organizations host pancake breakfasts as a fund-raising opportunity in their community. Bisquick developed Bisquick Pancake Nation as a national effort “to inspire pancake lovers to unite through pancake breakfasts.” The site offers a variety of tools that will help you plan your event including invitations, placemats, signage, and more. You can also apply for a $250 grant from Bisquick to help cover your supply costs (through May 31), locate a nearby pancake fundraiser, and post photos of your fundraiser.
Win It! One of you will win a Bisquick Pancake Nation prize pack that includes a box of Bisquick mix, a Lodge Cast Iron Griddle, a Cuisipro Deluxe Batter Bowl, and a Cuisipro Pancake Turner to create your own pancake breakfast at home. Simply leave me a comment with the name of a local organization you’d like to help coordinate a pancake breakfast fundraiser with. Comments will close on March 21, 2010 at 11:59 PM PST. One comment per person, please (unless you do the extra credit). US residents only. Duplicates and comments not including the above information will be disqualified. Comments are moderated.
