Cheesy Macaroni Pancakes

This Mac and Cheese Pancakes Recipe Will Win Any Brinner Throwdown

— October 14, 2013 — Lifestyle
If you were looking for a way to spruce up your breakfast food, these mac and cheese pancakes might do the trick. The Misc. Kitchen recipe was inspired by a menu item from Shopsin's on Manhattan's Lower East Side's Essex Street Market. These are ideal for brinner enthusiasts (breakfast for dinner) or for those who enjoy a heartier meal to start their day.

While adding maple syrup may or may not be a good idea, the mac and cheese pancakes would go perfectly with a side of bacon. That being said, everything could be improved with a side of bacon. The recipe is intended to have emotional healing powers. This might be from combining two class comfort foods. This could also make a wonderful hangover meal.
