Pancakes, Waffles and Maple Syrup

Here is a little change from the traditional roasts that you can prepare for Sunday Dinner.  
Pancakes or waffles topped with a couple of sausages of your choice.  Then add 
butter with real Canadian Maple syrup.  It will be a pleasant change and quite easy to make
with great appeal for teenagers' picky appetites.
