@blue_dolphin – I’m really loving the idea of putting breakfast inside those pancakes.  I just added a packet to my TJ’s list.

Thanks for the tip on them - only $2.49 for a packet of 5. I was thinking to make my own, but at that price, it’s hardly worth it. Depending on your personal preferences, I recommend letting them get nice and crispy on the outside. I’ve been cooking them in a well-seasoned cast iron skillet and skipping the small amount of oil. Only downside is they have to be cooked one at a time so not great for feeding a crowd. 
For yesterday’s breakfast, I cooked one, added a smear of tomato chili jam, a sprinkle of cheese and what my grandmother called a 'pancake egg'  then rolled it all up. 
For today's breakfast, I cooked another scallion pancake, cut it into wedges and made little open-face tuna salad bites.

This morning:

When I was a little girl, the cereal commercials always showed their cereal being served with a side of toast, which even then I thought odd.  If you had cereal, why did you need toast?  And vice versa.  I suspect it was required by their attorneys and says something sinister about the cereal.  But, it was what appealed to me today.  Besides we have Wheat Chex and I adore them😁.

@Kim Shook, toast goes with everything!

 

Another TJ's Taiwanese scallion pancake idea from Double Awesome Chinese Food.  Pulled pork with cranberry:

The book has a recipe for a cranberry sweet & sour sauce which I'll try one of these days but I already had a cranberry sauce flavored with orange, kaffir lime and cinnamon so I reduced some down to thicken it a bit. This combo of cranberry & scallion pancake would be really good with a smear of brie or other creamy, funky cheese.

Before they opened their restaurant Mei Mei, the sisters who wrote that cookbook had a food truck that used to come and park outside the building I worked in.  I would get the Double Awesome sandwich for lunch sometimes.  I am pretty sure the recipe is in that cookbook.  It would make a terrific breakfast.  You should try it if you have not already.  It really is delicious, but fair warning it is dangerous calorie wise.  There is a reason that I have lost 30 pounds since I stopped working!  🤣

@Kim Shook, your toast and cereal breakfast is what my husband eats every day: several pieces of toast, then a large bowl of boxed cereal + added home made granola + banana slices and berries. The only time he doesn't eat cereal is when he makes pancakes. We are not typically variety eaters at breakfast, although now he is baking biscuits once a week. Otherwise, Have Bread Will Toast.

This one was totally inspired by the Double Awesome in the book except I used Little Green Dress instead of pesto, Parm instead of Cheddar and only one egg.  I will surely try the real thing one of these days!

@blue_dolphin 

 

what section of TJ's has those pancakes ?

 

Fz ?  Refrigerated ?

 

I hope to remember to try to find them

 

next visit.

They are in the frozen case and were near the potstickers and other Asian foods. 
Here's the package:

I wish it were re-sealable but it’s easy enough to slide the open pack into a gallon ziplock.

You need a supply of these!

Very similar.  In the book, They use shredded sharp cheddar instead of sliced and use the greens to make a pesto with garlic, rice vinegar and oil.

Edited to add that I love that was from Yankee magazine - a blast from the past as it was a regular during my growing up years!

I do indeed have a bunch of Grip Stics at the ready - I think I bought them after seeing you or @Kerry Beal had snagged a bargain purchase of them on one of your ventures- I'm a big fan!

I will have to see if I can open this particular package in a different way because when I cut off the fused end, there's not enough bag left to make a fold that the stic can grip!

That sounds delicious to me!  His cereal concoction sounds like the most perfect bedtime snack ever!

At the food truck (and then later at their mostly takeaway restaurant a few blocks away) the eggs were soft poached and then deep fried to make the edges all lacy and the outside crispy while the yolk stayed runny.  The unfortunate side effect of this technique was that sometimes the whites remained a little underdone but I would just scrape away those parts and eat the rest.  Eating one of those sandwiches for lunch guaranteed a sleepy and decidedly unproductive afternoon at the office 🤣

I'm not in Tibet. (That was in March 2006)

Tomato sauce, passata consistency. There's a tortilla underneath, which is completely soggy but it's probably supposed to be like that. First meal after 22 hours straight without sleep and 2 flights.

With melted cheese on top. Sauce has clear taste of tamarind. Quite refreshing.

Some Oaxacan dishes have no chance of winning a beauty contest.
"Coloradito" is just a liiiitle spicy.

Enfrijoladas contains black beans in the sauce/mole

Chocolate, chillies and cheese every day. I love my temporary Oaxacan life! 100% without sugar for myself, con leche for travelling companion. *Pan de casa* this time. Has the same lightness as *pan de yema* but more eggy taste and sweeter.

Moe loves scrambled egg and roast beef with gravy

Well that’s different. But why not? I like gravy on my salad when nobody’s looking.
