Somehow I just got into an argument with my wife about this. What's your preference? I'm talking straight up French toast and pancakes.  Not any of this cinnamon raisin stuffed with whatever you want option. It's either a pancake or a piece of French toast.

I generally order pancakes when I’m out because they are harder to make. If I’m at home and I want a big breakfast, it’s easy to make some French toast.

You too?

 

I’m firmly on french toast as my grandmother used to make it for me often. These days.....just a banana and skim milk.

Waffles.

 

Seriously though, this is always a big decision for me. Typically I make french toast at home, because it's just easier (for me) to make for one person, and I make killer french toast. So when I go out, I might be more inclined to order pancakes (at a place known to have great pancakes) or waffles, because I rarely eat waffles and they're pretty damn good.

 

The real key is the syrup/topping. A nice mixture of butter, vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar, real maple syrup, some fruit (bananas/berries). Toss in some high proof rum/brandy/bourbon and flambe!

 

Hey if I'm going to the trouble to make french toast or pancakes, I might as well go all the way.

Only time I have preferred pancakes even in restaurants was when it was special like chocolate chip pancakes or apple cinnamon pancakes so french toast.

If a man speaks and no woman is there to hear him, is he still wrong?

Oh and I made pancakes for dinner because my wife was tired. Potato pancakes and both my wife and fussy daughter liked them.

I’ll ask my wife when she gets home. Get back to you later with an answer.

There's damn waffle option. I like a waffle, but this is a French toast/ pancake battle. Waffles have no place here.

Waffles in the toaster we a good vehicle for the sugar that is syrup. I think I’d still like it, but I’m too old and wise to try. (I know, some will argue I’m not too....old.)

We have pancakes every weekend because the kids like them and they are so easy to make, my ten year old cooks now.

 

But good French toast is hard to beat.  Waffles are a close second.  I just need a waffle maker that’s easier to clean.

 

Most importantly, bacon with any of them.

Is it possible that our wives are sisters from a different mother?

I'm coming to the conclusion that despite outward differences,  they all all the same at the core.

A true story that I retell whenever possible, most recently right now.  Wifey and I were having a heated 'discussion' one evening and it turned into:

 

Me: You disagree with everything I say.

Her: No I don't.

Anything she is making ... Two frying pans, this woman is a keeper.

 

I'll have to vote French Toast because I love my wife's drunken French toast.

I like them both. It depends on what mood that I am in. French toast needs more attention though.

I had a friend who was dating an Italian girl from a big, loud family. 

I asked him, “Would you actually marry an Italian girl?”

His answer, “After you marry them, they all become Italian.”
