Pancakes and French Toast for September Morn Breakfast

The most important meal of the day inspires two questions: 1. What’s for breakfast? 2. Again?

 

But fear not. Off in the distance we can see the approach of September — the official Better Breakfast Month. Let’s pre-celebrate. Here are two recipes — supplied by Carrington Farms and Viki’s Foods — that use better ingredients and reward us with better taste. And guess what?  It's okay to also  prepare these  in other months while everyone else is having ordinary breakfast.
