“This is my MIL's recipe that she has made for years. My whole family loves it. DH even loves putting jam and a sprinkle of sugar on the pancakes. He rolls them up and will eat them for breakfast. They are like a crepe. Some people like to just put the broth over the cut pancakes others like it with the veggies.”
