Any football fans out there?

It’s that time of year again! I was going to make a 49ers  or Cowboys football helmet, but I decided to be a little more team neutral until I hear what your favorite teams are :) I also wanted to make something that you can play with before you eat, so a mini football field complete with goal posts seemed like a good solution.

Let me know who your favorite team is, and maybe we can make a few more football pancakes this season.

Here’s a few tips  to make a football field:

1. To create the team names in the end zones, be sure to write them backwards on the griddle so that they are right-side-up when you flip it. The “good” side will always be the face down side when you start to draw with the batter.

2. Cocoa powder works great to make brown for the football. It adds a nice flavor too.

3. Cook the goal posts for a little longer than usual so that they won’t flop over when you try to stand them up. After they are cooked, I make a little puddle of green batter on the griddle and stick the goal post in the middle. Let the green puddle cook all the way through and you’ll have a goal post that can stand on it’s own.

Allie gives this one a thumbs up!

    I’ll have to get practising now to perfect a hockey rink… and the Canucks logo ;)

    This is a such a neat idea for a big prep breakfast for a kid’s soccer/baseball/football [etc] tournament too!
