Breakfast just got a kicked up a notch with these Avocado Corn Cakes

they are so delicious, they are enjoyed with syrup or sour cream appealing to both

the sweet and savory breakfast lovers…

these are great for brinner too…you know breakfast at dinner time,

Not going to lie here….I couldn’t stop eating them, neither could anyone else.

Mix up the batter and place three tablespoon size scoops of batter into a heated skillet on medium, they will be ready to turn when they get firm on the edges. I placed a lid on them for minute to trap in some steam and help them cook quickly, flip them over then cook for another minute on the other side.

I like mine with sour cream, that’s how I like potato pancakes too.

I’m always looking for savory breakfast items and this, this is my new favorite.

Do you have a favorite topping for savory pancakes?  Maybe it’ll be good on these too.

I served the avocado corn cake with eggs and fruit. I love that California Avocados go so well with breakfast and can’t wait to make some more creative recipes with them. Replacing avocados for some other breakfast choices like cream cheese, peanut butter or butter will not only save you calories and saturated fats  it will give you added nutrition too.

I am going to go out on a limb here, but these can go way beyond the breakfast table, and well I think they would go with fried chicken really well,

ok….I’m am actually starving right now and that all sounds super-delicious to me!

If you want to spice up these a bit, add some diced jalapeños and cilantro is also good in these, I’m thinking pepper jack cheese could be the way to go here….that I will try next time.

The guys put Cholula hot sauce on them and loved it, so spice them up if you like!

    These look delicious! I make a corn cake but with masa. I think I’m going to try this recipe but switch out the flour for masa. :)

      I have’t tried freezing them, they get eaten up pretty fast around here. I do think they would freeze and thaw well though. I’d heat them in a pan after thawing for a better result than microwaving.
