    I saw where Rachael Ray did a 30 minute dinner using dry pancake for fritters. Can't remember what she put in them, but they looked great!!

    Sorry I don't have the recipe, but the men's group at church use pancake
    mix to dredge the meat for a delicious swiss steak!

    I love to make Banana or Pineapple fritters for breakfast. Make a pancake batter as usual, slice a banana in half lengthwise then in 2" lengths. Heat oil in skillet & dip each piece of banana in batter & quickly put in hot oil. Fry until golden, remove & drain on paper towels. Serve while hot topped with some powdered sugar. Yummy!
    Can do the pineapple slice the same way but cut rings in half first.

    there are a number of muffin recipes that use pancake mix.

    Wow, thanks so much for your help. I have never made fritters before but they sound great!! Will definitely try them and thanks also for the website.. Wonderful! Had never thought of using it for muffins or swiss steak either but that sounds good too. Very Interesting!!
    Much appreciated!

    just use it exactly like Bisquick or Jiffy baking mix.

    We have used it to make a beer batter for coating chicken, fish, vegetables, etc.

    2 or 3 hours before you plan to use:
    mix together equal parts of each the pancake mix and the beer (say 1 cup)
    depending on how much batter you think you'll use.
    Mix together well. Cover the bowl with a towel, magazine - whatever is handy. Leave out on counter. Right before using stir in a teaspoon of salt. Dip the food and fry in oil.

    DH will often add up to a tablespoon of "specialized" seasonings for what he's going to fry, like poultry seasonining, fish, pork rub, Creole, Cajun, etc.

    We have saved surplus batter, covered and refrigerated, up to 3 days when we thought we'd use it on another batch of whatever.

    Wow, thanks Ringmaster.... That sounds really good, have to try that as my husband LOVES that kind of food, especially fish and chicken!
    Have a great week! DeeDeeBird

    So much for the Recipe Finder...

    I've been making this recipe for years; it is tried (over and over and over again) & true! Personally, I make homemade buttermilk pancakes every weekend, but I DO keep a box of pancake mix on hand just for this recipe. It comes from the June/July '94 TOH, submitted by Vicki Raatz. It did NOT come up with the recipe search feature, so I ran home to get it for you... Try it, you will like it!!!

    Cheddary Chicken Potpie

    1 can (10-3/4 oz) cream of chicken soup, undiluted
    1 c. milk, divided
    1/2 c. chopped onion
    1 pkg. (3 oz.) cream cheese, softened
    1/4 c. chopped celery
    1/4 c. shredded carrots
    1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
    1/2 tsp. salt
    3 c. cubed, cooked chicken
    1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped broccoli, cooked & drained
    1 egg
    1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
    1 c. buttermilk complete pancake mix
    1 c. (4 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
    1/4 c. sliced almonds, optional

    In a large saucepan, combine soup, 1/2 c. milk, onion, cream cheese, celery, carrots, Parmesan cheese, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium-low heat until mixture is hot and cream cheese is melted. Stir in chicken and broccoli. Pour into an ungreased 2 qt. casserole dish.

    In a medium bowl, combine egg, oil, and remaining 1/2 c. milk; mix well. Add pancake mix and cheese; stir to combine. Spoon over chicken mixture and spread smooth. Sprinkle with almonds, if desired (I never use the almonds and it is still delicious!).

    Bake, uncovered, at 375* for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

    I've got a pan of this in the oven right now. Looks pretty good and uses a whole cup of the mix. I'll let you know how it turns out. :)
