Ham-Stuffed Pancake "Cupcakes"

Peering into the deep pits of my empty tin foil-wrapped paper plate o' leftovers, I have been forced to come to the realization that my adventures with ham have come to an end. I wanted to do so much more with the ham leftovers, but in a way am glad it has run out. I mean, how much ham can one person eat in a week? No more lying in bed pondering over the possibilities ham will bring. No more choosing between ham for dinner or ham for dinner. I can finally get back to normal; well, until I finish these delicious Syrupy Ham-Stuffed Pancake Muffins, of course.

After this, I am turning vegetarian for the week.

Serving Size: 6 Muffins

2 1/2 Cups Flour

    I was delivered 3 of these last night...there is one left...and all I can think about is the fact that I want more!


    No more ham? What about the calzones?

  2. hahaha This is Awesome. The fact that your handle is "The Foodgitive's BF" is funny as hell. Thanks for the comment.

    We'll have calzones.

    Listen up people- I will post a recipe this week for calzones but without ham- I will probably make it with Ricotta and Spinach

  3. Oh my...I could probably eat 18 of these. What a creative, delicious idea!
