What Is Pancake Spaghetti?
Many people consider breakfast the most important meal of the day, and the latest viral food trend, “pancake spaghetti,” is guaranteed to flip your lid. On September 29, TikToker Briana Archuleta shared with the world how her husband, Steven Archuleta—who calls them “squiggle cakes”—created the pancake spaghetti idea by buttering a hot griddle, and placing the pancake batter in long, striped spaghetti-like lines until they were golden and crispy, then piled them high in a bowl and topped them with powdered sugar. Briana, in a recent interview with Today, affirmatively stated “It was delicious.” In their follow-up tutorial video on TikTok, Steven Archuleta recommends finishing the pancakes with toppings such as blueberries, strawberries, or bananas. For Briana’s dish, he upped the spaghetti-like look of the pancakes by topping them with sausage in the shape of meatballs, along with a little maple syrup. With over 10 million views on their viral post, it’s evident that this sweet mouth-watering dish is a huge hit, and everyone is trying it out for themselves.

What makes this trend flippin’ fantastic?
Better Health states that eating breakfast boosts your energy after going 12 long hours without eating, and restores glycogen levels to keep your metabolism up and ready for the day. Hence, pancake spaghetti is not only a pleasure to make, it is also a healthy and beneficial way to start your day. In addition, the fun part about this hack, according to recipe developer Amanda Neal, is that you can use any pancake batter to make it—chocolate, red velvet, banana—you name it!
Even vegans can join in the fun. If you're someone who likes easy tasks, you can use any of your preferred ready-to-go vegan pancake mix—just add water. If you prefer making your pancake mix from scratch, you can use non-dairy milk, and for an egg substitute, you can use mashed bananas, pumpkin puree, or even unsweetened applesauce. As for toppings, you can use apple and maple sausage as a substitute for regular sausage.

French Toast Nutella Roll Ups
French toast is good, but french toast roll-ups are even better! (This goes for most foods that you can turn into a spiralized version!) Just take white bread, spread some Nutella on top, roll it up, dunk it in a bowl filled with a mixture of half and half, eggs, honey, and salt , fry it in pan of melted butter, roll them up and roll in some sugar while they are still warm, and you will have delicious french toast Nutella roll-ups! What’s so special about this is that it’s not just for breakfast—you can serve it as a decadent dessert or even for lunch.
