Friday night, as I was laying in bed wide awake trying desperately to fall asleep, visions of IKEA’s Swedish Pancakes sprang to mind, and I decided then and there that I was dragging everyone to IKEA for breakfast Saturday morning. Besides the fact that the food is surprisingly good, considering it’s a restaurant in a furniture store, you can’t beat a 99-cent breakfast. This IKEA isn’t open on Sundays (that pesky blue law), so it gets a little crazy-busy on Saturdays. I wanted to be there right when they opened. I was the only one in the Sweetnicks family who has had their breakfast before, and the rest of the gang was a little dubious about the whole thing.
For a mere $12.47 we got breakfast for four … potatoes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, french toast sticks, Swedish pancakes and drinks. Can’t beat that deal with a stick. I don’t know what they do to their scrambled eggs, but they’re the creamiest I’ve ever had. And the potatoes? Not a speck of grease to be found, and crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.
The last time I went to IKEA for breakfast, I was inspired to find a recipe for Swedish Pancakes so I could make them at home. I did, and after having IKEA’s again this weekend, I have to say, the home version is oodles better and a snap to make. Hope you try it.
