Cream Cheese Pancake

This recipe came about because I had been eating hard boiled eggs for breakfast for roughly two months. I knew this was tempting fate, but I wanted to keep my breakfast low carb because of my eating habits for the rest of the day. Eventually the inevitable happened… I took a bite of an egg… and it instantly grossed me out. It’s a hard feeling to explain… but it always happens if I have too many eggs. I have the same issue with hotdogs.

Anyway, I was looking up low carb breakfast ideas and I came across this recipeĀ . It sounded delicious enough, but when I tried to make it I found it unfilling and nearly impossible to flip the pancakes.. in fact.. I ended up with some fancy scrambled eggs the first couple tries. So I decided to make this recipe my own! By adding flaxseed meal and a little flour this cream cheese pancake idea becomes a heartier breakfast with some extra protein.. and it tastes pretty good too, if I may say so myself.
