ventured out of my comfort zone

Breakfast is a meal my husband and I don’t change up much.  My husband normally cooks breakfast and it’s always wonderful.  He makes the best cheese eggs!  We have our favorite breakfast casserole, biscuits and gravy, ham and eggs and the Bradford Inn waffles w/fruit syrup I recently blogged about.  Well, today I ventured our of our comfort zone and made something new and it was amazing.  My husband and I have added it to our list of breakfast favorites.  These amazing Oatmeal Pancakes with Banana-Walnut Syrup comes to you via the Betty Crocker BEST Bisquick RECIPES cookbook.
