Pancake Soup

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

I think this is unique! It uses leftover pancakes from "Bavarian Pancakes" to make a delicious soup. Grandma used to make this for the grandkids (including me!) all the time. One grandchild nicknamed her "Soup Grandma". :) The ingredients for the Bavarian Pancakes below are for a half batch, which makes about 4 pancakes. Use 3-4 pancakes in the recipe.

This was a really interesting soup. I'm not used to cutting pancakes into thin strips, and I have a tendency to make my pancakes thick, so the pancakes strips came out thick in the soup. I added some carrots, parsnips, and butternut squash to the soup, so it turned out more filling.
