Two of my favorite breakfast treats in Albuquerque are the blue corn pancakes from Sophia’s Place, and the red chile-honey glazed bacon from Gold Street Caffe. When you make them at home, you can have both together! Add a few pinon nuts and a dab of local raspberry jam, and this is a spectacular breakfast.
I got some great blue cornmeal from the Corrales Chile Company at the farmers’ market a few weeks ago, but you can often find it in local grocery stores. The pancakes are adapted from a Cook’s Illustrated recipe for multigrain pancakes made with ground muesli, and I just substituted the blue cornmeal.
