Made as written for the FYC tag game & this was such a treat! Siggi & his brother walk together on Sat morning & have a tradition that the walk ends w/brunch. They are esp fond of brunch because breakfast just ends, but a brunch ends w/dessert! Today they had a sml serving of yummy oatmeal thx to Mia, a sausage & a split bagel half w/these pancakes. I doubt I can match the new std they've set for brunch dessert. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
