“This tasty(if unhealthy)recipe is one I've used during Stampede Breakfasts for years. These are real "stick to the ribs" western flap-jacks that will wreck any diet in seconds. I've always had a large electric or very large gas griddle to use, but one that will cook 4 at a time will do as well. Can be eaten with your hands, but not with syrup!!”
