Breakfast at Pappy's

This morning, my dad blessed us with a marvelous brunch. One of his favorite new kitchen hobbies is ebelskivers, or filled pancakes. What before I only heard described via Skype, I've now experienced. And wow! Are they yummy! We had our choice between strawberry jam-filled and apple-filled. Of course, I had both. I'm really thankful, too, that we left our stash of Vermont maple syrup with my parents, although I opted for agave nectar on mine.

The males in our family were especially pleased to have both bacon AND sausage with our brunch, as well as Pappy's perfect scrambled eggs. I added kefir to my ensemble, and a good time was had by all.

After refusing to follow my advice about using the Bosch to magically whip up the egg whites, Daddy called on me to finish fluffing them with the hand mixer. (sigh) He knows now. Anyway, after folding them in, the batter foretold of tasty times ahead.

Daddy whipped up this apple filling.

The anticipation was killing us!

I love my dad. And I love his love of working in the kitchen.


  1. These look so good!! I don't know if I can hang with you... you are turning me into a foodie!! I told you about my big girl tendencies... I would like to hire Pap to be my personal chef... Is he available??:)

  2. Wow! Those look amazing. I think you should definitely open an eatery of some sort together. =-)

  3. Yum!!! I'm going to look for a gluten free recipe and see if I can duplicate these! You are SO lucky your dad loves to cook...and is so GOOD at it!

  4. Ashley puts sausage into her ebelskivers and then sprinkles them with powder sugar and drizzles warm syrup on top! I would just love to kiss the man who invented the ebelskiver (and epidurals)(probably not the same man)!

  5. Oh, wow, those look delish! I've never heard of them before, but I can't wait to try making some!
