Annie was the cook on the Krug Ranch before she married Charles in 1900. Her old recipes inspire our ranchhand breakfasts. Like Annie, we bake from scratch for breakfast -- bread, scones, sourdough English muffins. We were lucky to have access to her cookbooks and now use some of her old recipes. Even today's cowboys enjoy:
Drain canned hominy; reserve liquid.
Toast hominy in butter in frying pan.
Mash, mix in liquid.
Mix with equal amount of prepared pancake mix.
Cook on oiled griddle; serve with apple butter or homemade chokecherry syrup.
