I expected Denny’s to come up with some outrageous holiday fare. After all, they’ve been hitting some gluttonous home runs this year with their Baconalia and cheese crazy menus. However, after looking at the new items on their Taste of the Holidays Menu, I’m disappointed.
The new items include: Red Velvet Pancake Puppies with Cream Cheese, Arthur’s Milk & Cookies Shake, and Arthur’s Christmas Cookie Pancakes. I don’t know about you, but when I look at that list, I think nothing stands out. Having reindeer meat as a Grand Slam option would’ve been sufficient.
The Red Velvet Pancake Puppies consists of six bite-sized pieces made with white chocolate chips, sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with a side of cream cheese icing for dipping. Arthur’s Milk & Cookies Shake is a blend of vanilla ice cream and sugar cookies. It’s also topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with sugar cookie bits. Finally, Arthur’s Christmas Cookie Pancakes are three silver dollar pancakes with sugar cookies baked in. They’re topped with whipped cream and sugar cookie bits. The dish also comes with your choice of two bacon strips or two sausage links, one egg cooked to order and a side of syrup
