Eyeball Pancakes

This is such a simple, yet delicious sandwich that goes great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or whatever occasion you want it. It takes the usual peanut butter sandwich up a notch by incorporating sliced apples and cinnamon and then grilling it. The apples are warm, the peanut butter is all melty, and the bread gets crisp and delicious. 

Peanut Butter and Apple Grilled Sandwiches
serves 3
1 apple
6 slices sandwich bread
½ cup peanut butter
ground cinnamon, to taste

Core and peel the apple. Slice it into 1 mm thick slices. Layer them on top of 3 of the slices of bread. Spread 2-3 tbsp of peanut butter onto each of the remaining pieces of bread. Sprinkle cinnamon on top and place the peanut butter covered bread over the apple slices. Preheat a grill pan or Panini press to medium heat. Cook both sided until golden. (I did about 4 minutes per side on my grill pan.) Enjoy!DSC_0004[1]

Here is a doll's skirt that I made to fit an 18" doll. It turned out to be a little too narrow in the waist region, so I am thinking about making a little sock doll to fit in it. Once I get the proportions right, I will attempt to draw up a pattern to share. It really was simple.


The title for this post is "Eyeball Pancakes". You may think I come up with some pretty crazy concoctions sometimes, but eyeballs in pancakes? That just sounds gross. Don't worry. There are no actual eyeballs in these pancakes. It's just fruit. (If you want to know what eyeballs really taste like, ask my dad. He ate some guinea pig ones in Peru last year.)  I think these pancakes would be great for a Halloween party or something. (Maybe a Halloween sleepover breakfast?) I'll just get on with the recipe.

Pancake Eyeballs
¾ cup milk
¾ cup flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 egg
½ tsp baking powder
dash of salt
1 apple, cored and slices into 1/8” thick slices

Mix the first six ingredients together. Preheat a nonstick pancake pan to medium heat. Place the apple slice on it and then scoop out 3-4 tbsp of the pancake batter on top. Cook each side until lightly browned. Pop out the center of the apple slice and stick a cherry inside.
