Classic Pancake Bake

Who doesn’t love pancakes for breakfast? I’ll tell you who – the person who’s cooking them!  They’re always the last to sit down and actually be able to enjoy said pancakes – and by then, let’s be honest, they’re cold. Enter Stephanie from Sweet Savory and Steph‘s Classic Pancake Bake.  Not only is this a great way for the whole family to sit down to a nice warm pancake breakfast at the same time, but it is – obviously – easy meal prep!  Mix up a few ingredients, throw it in the oven, and in less than an hour you’ve got breakfast for the week.  Scroll down to listen to our full conversation about why a holiday week is NOT the week to throw in the towel when it comes to meal prepping.  All the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is the reason WHY you SHOULD be meal prepping…just get this done!  As Stephanie says, “You’ll never be sorry you meal prepped.”  Find her full Pancake Bake recipe HERE!

Our Favorite Thanksgiving Side!

Our Favorite Thanksgiving Side!

Jamie and our meal prep expert, Stephanie from Sweet, Savory, and Steph, have both been making the same side dish for years for Thanksgiving. It is SO easy, crazy delicious, and you only need five ingredients! Get ready to impress with Paula Deen’s Corn Casserole.

Ingredient List:
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can cream-style corn
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup melted butter
1 8oz package corn muffin mix (like Jiffy)

Mix it all together, throw it into the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, and that’s it! You could even melt some shredded cheese on top to finish it off.  If you do make it, let me know how it comes out!  Email me at jamie@kjoy.com.
