Mac and Cheese Pancakes | The Blonde Buckeye

Sooo, ya, I did make some Mac and Cheese Pancakes. But first, a backstory…

It all started a few months ago when my husband was in NYC for a business trip. He randomly stumbled across a restaurant called Shopsin’s, the type of place that you can get kicked out of for not following the rules.
