Dish Up a Full Plate of Tradition This Thanksgiving

thanksgivingTradition is delicious at Thanksgiving. With so many recipes to choose from, where do you start? We’ve got you covered with Thanksgiving classics –check out our collection of the top traditional Thanksgiving dishes you can make at home from main course, sides to dessert.

Turkey with Stuffing—

A delicious, golden brown, roasted turkey is sure to please any family member. Roast your turkey with all the stuffing fixings (celery, Challah bread, green pepper, mushrooms, pecans, etc) for about 60 to 75 minutes at least. Try basting the turkey in its own drippings for added flavor and to inject extra moisture into the bird. Pair with home-made giblet gravy for a classic meal ready to eat. It also makes delicious leftover turkey sandwiches. We find Alton Brown’s classic Turkey with Stuffing recipe a win-win!

Mashed Potatoes—

Nothing compliments tender turkey better than creamy, buttery mashed potatoes. Boil Yukon or baby red potatoes for about 15 to 20 minutes in hot water. Mash softened potatoes together with a little cream, butter, salt, pepper and a touch of olive oil (try a flavored olive oil for an added flavor dimension) thoroughly. An electronic hand mixer or even food mill works well to cream the potatoes to the desired consistency.  

Cranberry Sauce

Looking to top your tender turkey with a sweet sauce? Start by boiling fresh cranberries together in water with sugar and then simmering with a cinnamon stick, allspice and nutmeg. Once the berries are tender, some will have burst, add in a little orange zest and orange juice and let cool.

Green Bean Casserole—

This creamy yet crispy side dish is a classic component to any Thanksgiving meal. Add boiled, fresh green beans to a creamy mushroom and shallot sauce and place in a baking dish. Top with torn pieces of rosemary, olive oil, parmesan coated Italian bread and bake for about 20-25 minutes until bubbly and the bread topping is crispy and golden brown. Talk about a flavor explosion in your mouth!

Glazed Carrots—

One of the simplest dishes to make: cook julienned carrots with coconut oil until tender and browned on the outside. Toss in a water, honey, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper glaze for a sweet and slightly savory side sure to put a smile on all faces.

Pumpkin Pie

Last but certainly not least, it isn’t a traditional Thanksgiving meal without pumpkin pie! A gingersnap and brown sugar crust envelops creamy, spicy pumpkin puree mixture. Process gingersnap cookies, dark brown sugar and ground ginger in a food processor and drizzle unsalted butter into the crumb mixture. Pulse until combined and press into a glass pie dish. Bring pumpkin puree to a simmer over medium heat in a saucepan and add in half and half, nutmeg and salt. Set aside to cool. Whisk brown sugar, eggs, and yolk until smooth into a large bowl and combine into pumpkin mixture thoroughly. Pour into pie crust and bake about 50 minutes. Not too sweet, not too savory, pumpkin pie is the perfect sending to a traditional Thanksgiving feast.

Spooktacular Halloween Food and Traditions

halloweenWith Halloween just around the corner, we wanted to share some spooktacular Halloween food traditions and customs associated with the frightful holiday.

Bobbing for Apples -

The tradition of bobbing for apples has been associated with Halloween for a long time. The Celts believed in the goddess Pomona and the apple was representative of her entity because when sliced open, the seeds formed a pentagram shape. Thus, the apple became an integral tool to determine marriages that occurred in the fall. Young, unmarried couples would bob for apples and the first to bite into one and retrieve it from the floating water or hanging from a string would be deemed the next to marry. Today, bobbing for apples carries a much different meaning and is often played at Halloween parties and other social gatherings. If you’re not up for a game of bobbing for apples, simply stop by one of our two Denver restaurants and experience our delicious Apple Pancake made with oven baked granny smith apples and cinnamon glaze. All the deliciousness without the work!

Pumpkin Carving

We use pumpkin in our popular Sara’s Pumpkin Pancakes but the yummy, round, orange squash wasn’t always used in cooking and certainly not for carving and Halloween decor. Historically, the Jack-O’-Lantern has an interesting past…and it all starts with a man named Jack. Legend has it, Jack tricked the Devil to win money to live a rich and pleasurable life. However, the Devil sought revenge on Jack for tricking him and after Jack’s death, the Devil sentenced him to walk the Earth forever armed with only a lantern made from a carved turnip. The practice of carving root vegetables eventually found its way to carving pumpkins and the snaggle-toothed Halloween Jack-O’-Lantern was born.


A Halloween highlight for the young and young-at-heart is trick-or-treating - what could be better than dressing up and going door-to-door to receive sweet treats?! However, the practice of trick-or-treating didn’t always have a happy ending. The custom is actually two-fold. The act of dressing up originates from the Celtic tradition that celebrates the end of the year, where it was thought the dead and living would overlap on Halloween. Dressing up like evil entities was thought to defend individuals against the ghosts that would roam the earth on Halloween night.  According to the Smithsonian magazine, the act of requesting food door-to-door is recorded as far back as the November 4, 1927 issue of the Backie, Alberta Canda Herald. The practice stemmed from children who were poor who would go door-to-door begging for food, money, or other items and if the residents refused to give them anything, they would find themselves victim to a prank from the begging children—hence the phrase “trick-or-treat.” If you’re looking for a treat without the tricks, we would love to invite you in for a great Denver breakfast. Treat yourself to a delicious Dutch Baby Pancake or Bacon Belgian Waffle in honor of National Pork Month!

Simple sweet trick-or-treats for Halloween

Creating treats for your next family fun Halloween event doesn’t need to be scary. There are several sweet and simple trick-or-treat options that take minimal time to prep and make, and are sure to impress and delight.

White Chocolate Covered Strawberries with Ghost Faces

These healthy sweet treats are very simple.

  • Start off with a 12 oz. package of white chocolate chips in a bowl.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of shortening.
  • Microwave at 50 percent power for 1 minute and stir until chips are melted and the texture is smooth.
  • Hold the strawberries by the tip and dip the entire berry into the melted chocolate. Place berries on a tray covered with wax paper so the berries don’t stick to the tray.
  • Refrigerate until the coating is firm, about 30 minutes.
  • Melt 1 cup of dark chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of shortening in the microwave, spoon into a piping bag (plastic bags work well too).
  • Cut a small tip at the end of the piping bag and pipe on ghastly ghost faces on the strawberries.
  • Refrigerate until the face coating is firm.

Wicked Easy Trail Mix

You can purchase pre-made trail mix from the store or purchase special nuts and dried fruits for your own special mix. Simply select your favorite cereal, peanuts, yogurt-covered raisins, and banana chips and combine for a tasty treat. You can also add in candy corn for extra Halloween attitude. Place trail mix in Halloween-themed cupcake liners for easy-to-serve portion sizes.

Spooky Sandwiches

Conjure some welcome spirits with a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Make a standard PB&J using your favorite nut butter and jelly or jam. Then, use a Halloween cookie cutter to cut out ghosts, pumpkins, and witches hat-shaped sandwiches. Add on fun accessories like raisins for eyes and feed lots of hungry ghouls.

Pretzel Fingers

The perfect eerie party buffet option, pretzel fingers.

  • Melt white chocolate chips in the microwave (see instructions above) until the texture is smooth.
  • Using large pretzel sticks, dip the sticks ¾ of the way into the melted chocolate and set on a tray lined with wax paper.
  • While the chocolate is still wet, add one slivered almond slice at the end of the chocolate covered stick to represent the “fingernail.” You can display these frightening phalanges in a mason jar covered with an old shirt cuff to really give your guests a creep effect.

Of course, if these spooky snacks give you the creepers, why not take yourself out for a Halloween breakfast in Denver? At the Original Pancake House, we are happy to serve all walks of life, from little ghostly goblins to Frankenstein and his family.

Apple Pancake

Comfy Cozy Fall Ingredients to Use in Recipes

Apple PancakeWith the onset of fall upon us, it’s time to break out the sweaters and pounce in a pile of leaves. It’s also a great time to cook utilizing some of the best bounties nature has to offer. As you plan your autumn meals with family and friends, we’ve got a few must-have fall ingredients to use in your dishes.


So many varieties, so many recipe possibilities! While the pumpkin may get all the attention this fall season, other squash varietals like acorn squash and butternut squash can be made into both sweet and savory dishes.

Try roasting a halved, pitted acorn squash with a little butter and brown sugar in the oven for 45 minutes at 400 degrees until the edges ripple and the flesh is soft. Take it out to cool for a few minutes and enjoy a yummy squash bowl with a touch of sweetness. If pumpkin is still your favorite squash, stop by for our Pumpkin Pancakes made with rich pumpkin, molasses and pie spices.

Dried Cranberries

Not just for Thanksgiving, these little red gems are perfect on a fall salad with pumpkin seeds and a mustard vinaigrette or in a kale and brussel sprout couscous side dish. They add a chewy texture and touch of sweetness needed to bump up the flavor profile of any fall dish.

Try throwing a few into your next bowl of oatmeal with a dash of cinnamon for the ultimate fall breakfast delight or swing by for our Old Fashioned Oatmeal with raisins (the cousin to the cranberry).


Crisp just like the autumn air, crunchy and red like the leaves on the ground, apples are a main staple for the fall season. Apple-picking season begins in late August to early September and lasts through November. From apple pies to apple cider, this sweet fruit is a great ingredient enjoyed by many. According to the U.S. Apple Association, there are more than 100 varietals of apples! The top ten apple varieties grown in the United States are:

• Red Delicious
• Gala
• Golden Delicious
• Fuji
• Granny Smith
• McIntosh
• Honeycrisp
• Rome
• Empire
• Cripps Pink

Don’t forget to come in and try our popular Apple Pancake oven baked with fresh Granny Smith apples and pure Sinkiang cinnamon glaze.

What are your favorite fall ingredients to use in cooking? The possibilities for these three ingredients are endless and engage all our senses. Fall into relaxation by stopping by to see us and enjoy the best breakfast in Denver to kick off the fall season.



Top Breakfast Foods in America

eggsBreakfast is many things to many people. It’s a time to fuel your body for the active day ahead and a time to gather with friends or family. While there are many ingredients and dishes that are staples for breakfast in Denver, there are a few favorites that make their way into our homes every year. What are they you may ask? Below, check out our list of the top breakfast foods in America in honor of National Breakfast Month.


A classic staple in any family pantry, cereal is a quick and easy way to pack in the needed fiber and whole grains needed for the day. Whether you lean on the healthier side or splurge for the Captain Crunch now and then, cereal has become a popular treat for kids and adults alike. In fact, 2.7 boxes of cereal are sold in the U.S. each year with 92% of American households purchasing it at least once a year (source: NPD Group). Celebrate our love for cereal this month by enjoying a bowl at home or come by and visit us for a bowl of our homemade granola, cream of wheat or dry cereal.


This delectable delight has been a main stay in American homes since the domestication of chickens. Eggs possess an impressive macronutrient composition unmatched by its fellow breakfast ingredients that contributes to its powerhouse of nutrition including the ingredient we all need in the morning: Vitamin D. From scrambled to sunny-side up, eggs can take on practically any form and shape we desire. With such versatility and demand for eggs, at our two Denver restaurants alone we serve more than 25,900 little white bundles a week!


You can’t talk about eggs without mentioning their trusty partner-in-tastiness: bacon. This savory, salty snack is as American as apple pie. From the irresistible smell, to the sizzle on the skillet, to the smoky flavor, bacon is one of the few breakfast foods that ignites and awakens all of our senses in the morning. According to AllTech, “Americans on average eat around 18 lbs. of bacon each year. That’s about 5,608,654,506 lbs. for the entire U.S., which is equal to 7.68 Empire State buildings.”  Today, we’re finding many creative uses for the classic strip – no longer just a side, try our bacon pancakes or bacon Belgian waffles – breakfast staples made even better with real bits of bacon baked right in!


What many consider a healthier option to cereal, oatmeal is another quick and easy way to fuel up and keep you full throughout the day. What makes oatmeal fun to eat is the many ways to spice it up. From adding slices of banana and a dash of cinnamon to incorporating it into pancakes for oatmeal pancakes, oatmeal is no longer the “barbarian” food it was once called. We serve our old fashioned oatmeal with warm skim milk, brown sugars and raisin – yum!

So whether you prefer one of the above or all five, these top breakfast foods have made their way into our hearts and stomachs for years. Their future culinary possibilities look bright and their extinction nowhere in sight. At Original Pancake House in Denver, let us fuel you up for the day ahead and offer you one of the best Denver breakfasts in town. We’re open every day from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. so swing by and celebrate National Breakfast Month with us!

Labor Day Traditions

"Grapes" by The Q Speaks is licensed under CC BY 2.0

Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1894 and since then it has signaled the end of summer. Although we’re sad to see summer leave us, there is still much fun to be had over the long weekend in Denver to wrap up the summer memories and create a few more memories.

Host BBQs and Picnics

What honors the summer season more than a good ol’ BBQ or picnic? Gather up your friends and family and fire up the grill for one last outdoor hurrah with this tasty on-the-grill recipe:

Grilled Grapes: Marinate halved grapes in ½ cup olive oil, 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 1 teaspoon crushed red-chili flakes, 2 crushed garlic cloves for 10 minutes. Place grapes in a grill basket and pop on medium heat to grill for no more than 2 minutes. Eat as is for a Denver brunch or place atop some toasted bread with brie for a sophisticated, quick and creamy sweet appetizer at dinner.


The weather is still nice enough to take one (or two) last dives in the pool or lake. It’s also a great time for a boating or fishing trip. Soak up the summer rays and spend time on or in the water! Anyone up for a little Marco Polo?

Last Day to Wear White

Fashionistas say not to wear white clothing after Labor Day given the cooler weather coming in and historical fashion rules. But old habits die hard, so for many of you, this weekend is your last chance to sparkle in white before perusing your closet for those warmer fall colors.


A somewhat atypical way to spend Labor Day - but how often do you get a three day weekend, eh? Many find it the perfect time to travel around. Enjoy the beauty of Colorado by escaping to the mountains or enjoying all that the Mile High city has to offer. See the sights and sounds

of a new environment and maybe do some shopping, restaurant-hopping, and outdoor activities with the family.

Community Festivals—

Colorado is packed full of festivals this time of year offering food, music and lots of excitement. Some popular events sure to satisfy your inner foodie, sports fan and artsy side include:

When thinking about the literal meaning of Labor Day, it doesn’t sound all that appealing but knowing these traditions are celebrated across the country makes celebrating the value of work by taking time off, a little more enjoyable, don’t you think? So whether you’re spending time around the pool or maybe enjoying a yummy Denver breakfast with us at the Original Pancake House Denver Tech Center restaurant or Cherry Hills Village restaurant, we hope you enjoy it!


End of Summer Family Bucket List

Happy Family Vacation

With the start of a new school year fast approaching, consider heading out for a family fun day before the end of vacation.  To make the day special, start with a hearty breakfast in Denver at Original Pancake House. With menu favorites such as Chocolate Chip Pancakes or OPH Smiley Cakes for the kids, and a plethora of egg dishes and more for the parents, everyone will leave full, happy, and ready to enjoy a day of adventure.  Read on to learn about a few of our favorite local spots to spend the day with the family.


Dinosaur Ridge

A part of the Morrison Fossil Area National Park, Dinosaur Ridge is a great place for families to see actual dinosaur footprints sealed by time. Dinosaur Ridge is famous for its Exhibit Hall and summer camps where young people can learn more about paleontology.


Cherry Creek State Park

A perfect spot for nature lovers, Cherry Creek State Park offers families a relaxing spot to spend the day. Enjoy hiking, biking, or horseback riding on the many trails throughout the park.  If it is a hot day, rent a canoe or kayak from the marina and picnic on the sandy beaches surrounding the reservoir.  Cherry Creek Park even offers an “airstrip” for flying model airplanes and a family shooting range.


Elitch Gardens

Summer vacation isn’t complete until you spend a day at Elitch Gardens.  Ride the slides to cool off in the water park and then test your adventurous spirit on the roller coasters and thrill rides.  There are attractions, rides, concerts and entertainment for kids ages 4 -100 which means the whole family will enjoy the day.


Tiny Town

Open to the public since 1920, Tiny Town, is a miniature collection of houses, buildings, and railroads to entertain kids of all ages. With more than 90 buildings on display, visitors enjoy stepping back in time with a ride on the railroad and marveling at all of the creations. Located close to Morrison, you get the added bonus of enjoying mountain surroundings on this trip!


The Children’s Museum

If you have younger children, Denver’s Children’s Museum is the place to go to “learn through play.”  With interactive exhibits, educational programs, and play areas, the kids will enjoy explorative play with everything from rockets, to bubbles, nature, and painting.


We hope you enjoy these last few weeks of summer, Denver!

Fiesta Bowl

Cool Breakfast Treats to Beat the Summer Heat!

Fiesta BowlEvery year in Denver we have a few weeks that are just plain hot.  When the thermometer has already reached 80 degrees before breakfast, sometimes you need a cool treat to start your day off on the right note.  Here are a few ideas for a refreshing morning meal!

Frozen Nutty Banana:

Cut one firm (but ripe) banana in half and un-peal. Arrange on a small baking sheet or freezer-safe plate, and spread each half evenly with 1 tablespoon of nut butter. Next add toppings such as granola, chia seeds, or flax seeds and cinnamon. Insert a popsicle stick or skewer into the cut end of each half, and freeze until solid (at least 2-3 hours).


Breakfast Parfait:

Grab a large glass or ice cream bowl andadd a scoop of your favorite yogurt, fruit and granola.  Continue adding layers until the glass or bowl is full.  Enjoy!


Breakfast Smoothie:

Blend one cup of milk, almond milk, or soy milk with ice and one cup of frozen or fresh fruit.  Berries and bananas work best!  For a thicker shake and extra calcium, add a little yogurt to your blender.  For an alternative to the classic fruit smoothie, replace the fruit and yogurt with a banana and 2 tablespoons of peanut or almond butter and blend until smooth.


Nutty Apple:

Select a large apple and slice in half.  Remove the core, plus a little additional apple flesh to create a large hole in the center of each half.  Fill each hole with peanut or sunflower butter and granola and reassemble apple.  Wrap the apple in aluminum foil or plastic wrap and enjoy on the run!


If you are dining out for breakfast in Denver, visit the Original Pancake House! We have several cool treats on our menu including the Fiesta Bowl, a healthy breakfast of non-fat yogurt and our Homemade Granola topped with fresh fruit. Or try our Homemade Granola, a healthy, delectable dish made from thick oats, pecans, raisins, and coconut seasoned with cinnamon and nutmeg, and served with skim milk.    Enjoy the summer!

World Cup Soccer

A World Cup breakfast – what do professional soccer players eat?

World Cup SoccerThe World Cup captured our attention this summer as we watched teams from all corners of the globe compete in the quest for futbol glory. As World Cup players are endurance athletes – the average player runs six to eight miles per match – they require up to 4,000 calories per day to keep their bodies strong and performing at max ability. In order to keep players healthy and full, many teams travel with their own set of nutritionists and chefs to monitor each player’s intake of calories, vitamins and minerals. In addition, the team nutritionist must prepare food that the players will eat and enjoy and as a result, many teams brought their own food supplies to ensure a “taste of home.” For example, the Italian team brought pasta, parmesan cheese, and wine to Brazil, while the Mexican team traveled with pozole, and the U.S. team brought peanut butter, jelly, Cheerios, and A1 Steak Sauce.

So what do the soccer players eat for breakfast? According to the U.S. Team Chef Bryson Billapando, breakfast chicken enchiladas were the most popular morning meal offering for the U.S. team. Instead of breakfast pancakes, he creates enchiladas filled with slow-roasted tomatoes, bell peppers, onions and garlic, shredded chicken, eggs, and homemade enchilada sauce. As the players require a carb-heavy diet, mixed with high quality proteins and healthy fats (no butter!), they also often enjoy rice and beans, or even pasta with their morning meals to fuel up for the day.

To ensure players are getting their required intake of vitamins and minerals, Chef Billapando requires each individual to fill his plate with at least two varieties of vegetables and multiple servings of fruit. According to team staff, the U.S. players eat an entire case, or 25 lbs., of avocados each day!

The next time you are enjoying a pancake breakfast in Denver (smothered in butter and syrup!); think of the World Cup players and their morning plate of rice and beans. We’re glad we get to enjoy pancakes and waffles!

Summer Road Trips

Summer Road Trips in Colorado

Great Sand Dunes
Great Sand Dunes

With the kids out of school, summer is the perfect time to explore the magnificent state of Colorado.  Our state offers nearly unlimited adventures for the family, but here are a few of our favorite places to visit during the summer months.


Glenwood Springs

An easy three-hour drive from Denver, Glenwood Springs is home to the world’s largest hot springs pool.  The whole family will enjoy playing in the water on a hot summer’s day.  Glenwood Springs also offers opportunities for hiking, whitewater rafting, fishing, and horseback riding, all nestled within a spectacular canyon of the Colorado River.


Colorado National Monument

Just past Grand Junction, the Colorado National Monument is a beautiful park with interesting red rock formations, cool hikes, and westward views as far as the eye can see. Be sure to stop in Palisade on your way and visit the orchards and vineyards for a taste of farm fresh Colorado peaches and cherries!


Great Sand Dunes National Park

Near the sleepy town of Alamosa, Colorado, the Great Sand Dunes rise out of the plateau forming a truly unique natural wonder.  Like a bit of the Sahara in the middle of our state, these dunes provide ample opportunity for exploration and family fun.  Many folks bring snowboards and skis to slide down the immense slopes.


Mesa Verde National Park

Near the mountain town of Durango, Mesa Verde National Park is one of only twenty World Heritage sites in the United States. Tour the ancient cliff dwellings, check out petroglyphs and enjoy the natural beauty of this special area.  Afterwards, pack a lunch and take a ride on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway.


Each of these destinations offers a unique adventure within an easy drive of Denver. So collect the kids, pack up the car, and head out on a summer road trip!  Just be sure to fuel up with a nice big pancake breakfast in Denver before you hit the highway.
