How to Serve these Beauties

Now that you’re ready to plate your beautiful creations, here are some ideas! For regular breakfast service, we love dousing each lemon ricotta pancake with strawberry compote and topping it with confectioners sugar and fresh strawberries. Then, we send it out for delivery with organic chicken apple sausage, homemade granola, and fruit!lemon ricotta pancakes lemon ricotta pancakes
