So this is the culmination of a couple different ideas I have come by the past couple of months. We first saw the Batter Blaster pancake batter on a website in January and found out that our local Costco carried it. So we picked some up. The batter basically dispenses out of a whipped cream can. It is fairly decent as far as pre-made pancake batter goes, nothing fancy, just the basics, but saves time when you have a pack of (3) hungry kids and a mommy and daddy to feed in a hurry.

Then last month I saw an episode of Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" show where Guy Fieri interviewed this Diner owner who made his "Birdie in a Basket" (and egg fried in the center of a piece of bread) in pancake batter instead! It looked awesome!

Here is my attempt to recreate that!

Birdie a la Batter Blaster!

Step 1: Heat skillet and set to medium.

Step 2: Make a ring in the skillet with the batter.

Step 3: Butter flavored cooking spray in center of the batter ring.

Step 4: Gently crack egg into center of batter ring. If you leave the yolk intact you end up with it over medium. Or you can break the yolk for a fried egg, but where's the fun in that?

Step 5: Salt and pepper the egg if you like, but try not to get any in the batter.
Wait till the bottom side of the pancake is done, as usual, look for the bubbles.
Use the biggest spatula you have and flip it!

Step 6: Continue cooking till the other side is all done. Transfer to a plate.

Step 7: This is crucial here. Bust the yolk and spread the LOVE!

Well, I hope you get a chance to enjoy your own. My only regret was that I didn't have any bacon to go with it. But I will next time...

Comments/critique welcome.

 Cheesy I had no idea pancake batter came like that! I will have to investigate about finding it. I too love watching diners, drive ins, and dives. I love making the original (egg in a hole, as my family calls it) with just bread, but pancake batter sounds awesome! Thanks for the idea.

I am cracking up at "Batter Blaster"! But your post reminded me of when I was little, my Dad would make pancakes on Saturday mornings. We could request shapes and he would pour our pancakes in the shapes we asked for. Aw, good times.

I"ve never seen the can either, but my husband would LOVE this, he won't eat pancakes without egg yolk on them and then syrup on top, do you put syrup on top of yours?
