This is a far reaching idea I know. I was approached by Mandarano to try out their Balsamic Glaze and Sauce and come up with a recipe using it to share with all of you. I was really excited and honored for them to contact me to highlight their product. To be honest I have never really cooked with a sauce like this before. I have of course seen plenty of recipes that used this type of ingredient and was very happy to try it out. Although I know there are many tried and true delicious ways to use it that I have ordered in restaurants or seen on TV I was determined to think of something unique.
I searched for inspirations and then I decided on the recipe you see here. I have to admit I was a little nervous and the hubby was totally not a believer but it actually turned out really well. The real test was when my four year old started attacking the pancake pile after the photos and kept saying over and over “Thank you Mami, thank you for these delicious pancakes!” Slam Dunk in my book! 😉
As for the glaze it really is SO good! I cannot wait to make more things with it. I even drizzled some on my grilled cheese to experiment and it was delicious. I highly recommend giving this sauce a try. The contact I have had with the company has been wonderful and the product is of excellent quality.
