If you’ve never been to the Gatlinburg – Pigeon Forge area of Tennessee, it is inundated with places to sleep and places to eat. I can’t imagine how many there are or how many serve breakfast but they have about run out of words to put with Pancake House - Log Cabin Pancake House, Little House of Pancakes, Aunt B's Pancake House & Grill, Smoky Mountain Pancake House, Pancake Pantry, Red Rooster Pancake House, Flapjacks Pancake Cabin, just to name a few. Many restaurants, chain and local, have a place in each town as well as Sevierville.
Most serve the traditional Southern fare with country ham being a big seller on most breakfast menus and since I know Allen Benton ships to a lot of restaurants here, I assume many are serving his. Here are a couple of menu listings with most serving pancakes rather than toast or biscuits.:
“Country Ham at its finest, a delicious center cut served with two eggs and a stack of homemade buttermilk pancakes $7.59” (Smoky Mountain Pancake House)
“Country Ham & Eggs: 2 eggs, slice of delicious country ham served with 3 buttermilk pancakes - $8.95” (Red Rooster Pancake House)
Since we were heading over to Cherokee, NC to make our annual donation to the Cherokee Nation at their Harrah’s Casino and it would be a two-meal day, I decided to stock up with a thin center slice of Benton’s country ham, two sunny-side-up eggs, and 2 slices of toast for dipping (works better for this task than pancakes).
It was delicious, I didn’t have to leave our Gatlinburg timeshare on a cold morning, and I only had a few bucks invested in it – a definite winner in my book.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
