Breakfast Pancake Roll

My mom is in town for Easter and I wanted to make a fun breakfast. I saw this recipe in Sandra Lee's March/April issue of her magazine. I thought it looked fancy, which I always like when I have people over. It was really fast and easy to make. The original recipe called to use Egg Beaters for the eggs, but we used just regular eggs and scrambled them. I also decided to use diced ham in the eggs instead of bacon. I think next time I will use the bottom side of the pancake for the outside because it is a little browner. I think the presentation would be better with a browned outside. It was really good though. A nice way to get a whole plate into one dish. You could always switch it up to and make it spicier by adding peppers and onions in the eggs. Although I was not 100 percent happy with the presentation I did like the dish nonetheless.
