A stack of pancakes topped with pancake gravy and a pad of butter with sausage links on the side.

Pancakes are a breakfast food, but I think any time is pancake time. When you are working late, or you have many things to do in one day pancakes are a good choice. It is a food that can be put together in no time and your family will love them and they will love you for making them.

I know that most people enjoy their pancakes with gravy and there are many different kinds offered at the supermarket. There is Maple, Blueberry, Strawberry, and Butter Pecan, but did you ever think about gravy.

Our family has always used a simple gravy on pancakes, but I have never seen this combination offered in any restaurant. It is truly a combination that pairs well and is simple to make. Hope you try it.
