Number 92: Apple pancake from the Original Pancake House
Right, I know the Original Pancake House is a chain (25 states and counting), but you know what? I don't give a chicken's ass, because along with fat and beautifully fluffy six-egg omelets, plate-spanning blueberry flapjacks and some of the best corned beef hash ever, this friendly breakfast barn plies me with my favorite brunch rush -- the apple pancake -- a big-as-your-face, four inch-thick eggy, bread pudding-y brute that's slapped with a million slices of Granny Smith apples soaked in butter, glazed with sugar and powdered with cinnamon.
This, people, is the breakfast of champions.
