Brinner, it’s what’s for dinner.

I’m declaring it.

Loud and clear.

Have you ever met someone who immediately rolls their eyeballs after you say, “I have no idea what to make for dinner tonight. How about we make a delicious sweet potato & salami hash with fried eggs or a stack of Easy Churro Pancakes with Sweet Potato Chip Streusel?” No one that’s who. Because everyone loves breakfast for dinner.

I swear half of the recipes on this blog could be converted to brinner type dishes. Throw an egg on top of some enchiladas, brinner. Add cornflakes and nutella to French toast, brinner + dessert! But I have to say, throwing sweet potato chips into a streusel mixture and putting it on top of pancakes makes brinner the ultimate winner.

These easy churro pancakes are fun to make during the week, brunch, or for a special occasion. Take your basic flapjack recipe and then dip the pancake into a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. Top the pancake with sweet potato chip streusel and smother the entire darn stack with maple syrup.

You could be super naughty and add an egg on top of these pancakes. But that’s for an entirely different post all together.

Brinner, it’s what’s for dinner.

Spread the streusel mixture onto the baking sheet and place into the oven for about 7 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove baking sheet from oven and using a spoon lightly fluff the streusel.
