Buttermilk Syrup is perfect on pancakes, waffles and french toast. It is so delicious may just want to drink it straight!
I have to admit as a child, I was not a breakfast fan. Growing up, my breakfast repertoire consisted of one thing, Chocolate Carnation Instant Breakfast, every morning. My sister ate Pop-tarts every morning. O.K., so we weren’t much into nutrition in the 60’s and 70’s! (my entire senior year of high school all I ate for lunch every day was a package of Cheetos and a carton of chocolate milk, please don’t tell my mom!)
Then I married a man whose mother would get up every morning (no matter what the time) and fix him a nice, hot breakfast before he would go to school or off to move pipe in the potato fields of Idaho. Well, he learned really quickly that I didn’t do that. As a result, my husband has become a great breakfast cook. Most of the time, if there is a hot breakfast to be found at our house, dad has fixed it.
My kids learned how to pour a bowl of cold cereal in the morning or grab a bagel and cream cheese. Now, lest you think I am a terrible mother, I did cook a nice breakfast on Sunday mornings, birthdays, holidays or for the occasional dinner. I do like breakfast for dinner and I love brunch,and I have to admit I have learned to appreciate a good breakfast as I’ve gotten older.
I do enjoy breakfast a lot more though if I’m eating out. When my boys were in Utah at college, one of our favorite things to do was to go to breakfast at a local restaurant called Maglebys. To be honest, I went for the syrup! Whether you order the french toast or the pancakes, the buttermilk syrup is the best part. I would have pancakes just so I could have buttermilk syrup. Honestly, you are going to want to drink this stuff!!
