In and With a "Jiffy"

There are times when fixing breakfast "in a jiffy" on the weekend works great!  On Saturday AM, it was also with a Jiffy - with a box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix!  Watching the Boston College basketball game at noon on NESN really sped things up quite a bit here.  Hearty, tasty and easy was needed for breakfast, so we could do some errands and also be ready to watch that noon time start.  :)

Jiffy Corn Muffins are a family fave here, so I usually have a box or two of the mix in my pantry.  Growing up these muffins were a staple, but we never tasted the pancakes.  However, located on the side of the box are the directions.  For many years I never glanced at them and I really don't know why.  Now, I do prepare these pancakes, but always substitute Olive Oil, 2 Egg Whites and Soy Milk when whipping them up.  For a great tasting cornmeal pancake I also add in 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg to the batter.  In the above photo the light colored pancakes have little bubbles and are ready to flip over. 

The extras (shown below) are now in my freezer for another quick breakfast this week.  

The game was great!
Breakfast was Yummy!
We enjoyed both!

We love Jiffy Muffins, too, and never thought to make pancakes, they look so good! Have to try this, great idea, thanks!

These looks so good; perfect pancakes. I have never heard of this brand; will look and see it they sell this up here.

Carol- Quick & easy works great! :)

Rita- Other brands of packaged corn muffin mixes might have pancake directions, also.
