You can freeze them and have it for another Sunday breakfast

When my kids were young, I always intentionally made extra pancakes for a weekend breakfast, then froze them, 2-3 together, depending on their size, for weekday breakfasts. You don't even need to defrost - you can nuke them in the microwave right from the freezer.

We regularly have a pancake or two leftover on Sundays. We put them by the bird feeder and enjoy watching the birds feast on them the rest of the day.

Use them as the bread part of a breakfast strata. Include some breakfast sausage and/or bacon, maple syrup, obviously egg, etc. Sort of a continental breakfast all in one...?

I agree to just freeze them. Or two pancakes make good layers for some scrambled egg or fried egg - a nice, messy sandwich. Just cut in half. Even with some melted cheese on the eggs.

You could make dorayaki. They'll probably be bigger than normal dorayaki, but they'll still be delicious. I'm assuming these are plain pancakes, without inclusions like blueberries, or ricotta cheese or anything.

Use them like tortillas to made Quesadillas, with cheese and ham. See http://food52.com/recipes...

I usually freeze them as well, but sometimes I save some in the fridge to make something like a peanut butter sandwich.

I like to thin any leftover batter and make crepes - they're really just thin pancakes, right? It works with sourdough pancake batter and Swedish pancake batter.
