I had some leftover green pancake mix and I was trying to figure out something to do with it.
Turtles? Nah, already made one.
Insects? Gross. Wait, what about a ‘cute’ insect?
The trick is to make the legs pretty short so that they can hold the weight of his body. I cooked all the legs first (let them get a little crispy on one side for strength) then I made the body. You don’t flip the body for this one, you just let it cook all the way through on one side. Having a low griddle temp is a good idea. Right before the batter is cooked all the way, stick the legs on and they’ll cook together.
Let the whole thing sit on the griddle for a bit to make sure it’s fully cooked, then do your best to flip him without breaking into 3 pieces (this is version 2.0 for me). Add some chocolate chips for eyes and enjoy!
