Free Breakfast At Denny’s and Leftover Pancakes

Did you catch the Superbowl last night? As my husband always says, you really only have to watch the last few minutes of the game to get all of the excitement. If you did only watch the last few minutes, you might have missed a commercial for Denny’s. They are offering a great deal.
Tomorrow if you get to Denny’s restaurant anytime from 6 am until 2 pm, they will give you a free Grand Slam breakfast. That is a great deal for the whole family if you can make it in. Imagine a huge breakfast out for free! Danny’s also offers free dinner meals for kids on Tuesday nights. Make sure to check with your local Denny’s before you head out to make sure they are participating in the promotion.
Don’t worry if you can’t eat all of it at one sitting. You can take it home with you for leftovers. That reminds me of how great pancakes are for saving money. You can easily make up a batch of pancakes from scratch for less than the cost of box mixes, let alone cereal or other ready-made breakfast food. Pancakes can be frozen and then reheated individually in a microwave or toaster oven.
I confess that I have even used pancakes in an emergency to substitute for bread. My son loved taking a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on pancakes for lunch, and I didn’t have to run out to the store at the last minute or have him spend money on a school lunch.
Alton Brown, one of my favorite personalities from the Food Network has a very easy instant pancake mix recipe. You can find it here.
If you don’t want to bother with the buttermilk or even mixing up flour, try this simple recipe from Betty Crocker that uses Bisquick. It will cost a little more than pancakes made completely from scratch, but it will still save you money. Go here for the recipe.
