I have to admit I was a skeptic on this one, but I tried a recipe I saw online for this and since I had both leftover from our Thanksgiving feast, I decided to give it a try. This is not a recipe for someone who loves their sweet breakfast pancakes and waffles, rather it is for the more savory food lover. The person who tolerates breakfast while they are waiting for lunch or who would rather order a BLT or a chicken biscuit for their first meal of the day.
The original recipe that I used called for less maple syrup in the syrup and to appease the sweet breakfast folks in my house I simply added more. The original recipe also called for processing the cranberries down with an emulsion blender, I prefer the berries as a mix of chunky and whole and therefor left them that way when I made the syrup.
Whichever way you choose to go on this recipe, it is a true winner for something innovative to do with Thanksgiving leftovers, It passes the taste test, it is frugal, and easy to make.
