Featured Recipe: Banana-Pecan Upside-Down Pancake
When your business is breakfast, you’re bound to have some pretty amazing ideas. So when I needed a fantastic Christmas breakfast dish, I asked my new friends, Doug and Margi Erikson, owners of The CW Worth House Bed and Breakfast in Historic Downtown Wilmington, N.C. if they had one they’d be willing to share.
I tend to be drawn to savory breakfast dishes, and Margi and Doug have plenty of those, too, but what I really wanted was a sweet breakfast treat to feed the whole family. Doug says, “This is ‘hands down’ our guests’ favorite dish in the morning. [All you need is] a large old fashioned cast iron skillet to make it.”
Cast iron skillet in hand, I got to work to see if this was as easy as Doug promised. The result was beautiful, flavorful and ultimately very easy. I hope you’ll try this taste treat for your special holiday breakfast or when you need an impressive but easy breakfast dish. In the meantime if you’d like to visit the C.W. Worth House in person or virtually, check out their website a www.worthhouse.com or call for reservations 800-340-8559.

My husband grew up in Michigan and his mother was originally from the hills of Kentucky. I first had Chocolate Gravy one winter when she was visiting. Growing up in the South, too, I was surprised that I had never had it nor even heard about it. Anyway it was rich and delicious and she served it over hot, flaky biscuits.
My husband told me that when he and his cousin were running cross country in high school, before each Saturday race, his mother would make them biscuits and chocolate gravy. Now thanks to Cheap. Fast. Good! I am preparing your version of biscuits and chocolate gravy. Except now instead of heading to a cross country race we will be headed to our son's swim meet. Thanks for helping me carry on a family tradition.
