Stuffed Pancake Bites

Believe it or not, Back-to-School time is almost here, and you know what that means. School supply runs, carpools, early mornings, and, of course, quick breakfasts!

Yes, it seems like school season always brings on the simple, yet un-flavorful, easy breakfast dishes such as burnt toast, cold cereal, and stale microwavable waffles. Believe me, I get it. There just isn’t enough time in the morning for a warm, home-cooked meal. Plus, nothing’s easier than grabbing a toaster pastry on the way out the door, right?
