unPancakes

This is what you’ll need:

banana pancakes 1

Two large eggs per overripe banana. You can add a dash of cinnamon or vanilla, or even a teaspoon of peanut butter but this is essentially all you need. No milk, no flour, just eggs and a banana. Trust me.

Now smash up the banana and add the eggs. Beat it all together with a fork. (Or a whisk, whatever):

Now spray a hot skillet with some cooking oil and pour in your batter. Smaller is more manageable, because the pancakes will be a bit delicate. When they start to brown on the bottom, flip carefully:

Since you’re already eating two eggs and a serving of fruit, serve with your favorite breakfast meat:

You have to enjoy the flavor of bananas, obviously, but there you go – a perfectly satisfying pancake experience with no wheat, no grain, and very low carbs. These were so naturally sweet that we felt they didn’t need any added sugar or syrup but you do you, man. I won’t judge.

Squirrel Report – 172

We’re officially a call in show again.
(We had real live callers this time)

SQRPT is the only live streamed call in show in the podcast world (as far as I know) and it’s not easy! People like podcasts because they don’t HAVE to listen to it in real time. That makes doing a live call in show a little problematic. So if you haven’t called in, and you’re not busy around SQRPT time (8:00 PM Central, Thursday) give us a call. We’d love to talk to you.

Email address for listener feedback. sqrpt at sqrpt dot com.

We’d like to hear from people who don’t listen live.

Dem bones

bones

Despite the fact that it’s trendy right now and there are scores of hipsters walking around NYC sipping their overpriced cups of bone broth, there is truth in its goodness. Bone broth is one of those foods that has been nourishing human beings almost as long as we’ve been cooking. And it really couldn’t be simpler.

You’ll need:

  • Bones
  • Water

You might need:

  • Vinegar
  • Aromatics like garlic, onion, peppercorns, or herbs
  • Salt (but only added after)

Layer your bones in a big slow cooker. They can be whatever you prefer – beef, lamb, pork, chicken, or even a mixture. They also can be cooked or raw. Add your aromatics if you like (Leave them out if you’re making broth to supplement a pet’s diet – and absolutely no onion if you’re making bone broth for your cats!) Adding a splash of vinegar will help the bones to release their nutrients, but isn’t necessary. Now pour water over the bones until it covers by about an inch. Put the lid on your slow cooker and turn it on low for at least 24 hours.

Contrary to what Jay believes, your house will not burn down.

After a day or so, strain the bones from the broth. Try to crumble the bones between your fingers, because that’s kind of fun. Chill the broth to separate out the fat, which you can then skim off the top and discard.

To serve, try it with warmed in a cup with some sea salt for sipping. Or use it to make soup. Or gravy. Or mashed potatoes. Or rice. Etc.

Enjoy!

A recipe from way back when Breda was blogging.

(Remember to line the inside of your broiler pan with foil or you’ll be sorry!)
