I am a breakfast-for-dinner kind of guy. One of my favorite boozy splurges is silver dollar pancakes with maple bourbon syrup made in Mom’s cast iron skillet. There is something about the warm syrup oozing over the small disc that screams, “EAT ME!” Anytime that I can incorporate bourbon into a meal, I am in. Add in that it is breakfast food, then I am doubly in.
