my  mother always threw away the first pancake and the 
first palachinta (sp)pancake (really crepe, now i know 
better).  they were always too greasy.  and i don't think 
she knew too much about napoleon.

i still throw away the first palachinta pancake on the 
rare occasions i make them.  hmmm.... maybe this weekend.

I don't have a cat but the first pancake usually goes to the smallest
Child who will be having it cut up for him anyway. What I find is that the
first one very often sticks outrageously to the pan. Maybe I don't have the
temperature quite right. But the subsequent ones are usually fine, even if
the first stuck one has left some residue on the pan.

Non-stick pans are just wrong :-P
