Fun, right? Every summer we head up to Michigan for a family vacation and my dad always takes us to one of his favorite breakfast places. My son saw “Pigs in a Blanket” on the menu and HAD to have it…I think the exact comment was “Mom, they actually wrap the sausage in a pancake!” He thought it was the coolest thing ever. The first time he had Pancake Pigs in a Blanket was about 2 years ago. How many times has he had it since then? Twice. He orders it when we go up to Michigan. I have never made it home, nor I have ever thought about it. Until now.
