I like pancakes and waffles. Problem is that making them usually requires some form of self-rising flour. Self-rising flour is flour mixed with baking soda (sodium bicarbonate). The soda reacts with water when heat is applied (baking) and makes air bubbles in the batter. The result is a light, fluffy texture -- and 150-300mg of sodium in each pancake. *sigh*

I got a George Foreman G5 grille last week, the one with the five plates including the waffle iron plates. This prompted an experiment: cut "complete" (just add water) pancake mix with potato flakes. I've tried a couple of different variations and this one came out best (at least better than the others):

1/3 cup "complete" pancake mix
1/3 cup potato flakes
1 large egg
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp canola oil

Mix all those together in a bowl and let sit for a few minutes while the grille pre-heats. Pour the batter onto the grille, half on each side, and close the grille. Cook for ~5 minutes. Makes 2 large waffles.
