Default Ployes

IMO, there's no point in going up to the county if you have no intention of at least trying them! Once I got beyond the name of them, I had to try them. Then they became part of our regular breakfast regimen at Long Lake Motor Inn while snowmobiling each morning. Good, hardy, stick to your ribs (and thighs) breakfast side dish. They aren't just for breakfast either! good stuff!

I have heard them described like crepes and on this thread as muffins and I had thought they were like griddle cakes. Is there a traditional form, thickness and presentation: rolled or stacked?

I am familiar with "kasha" or "groats" which is a middle european roasted buckwheat dish that resembles cous-cous.

When I was a kid in Northeast PA we used to go to a pancake supper at a local church. The pancakes were buckwheat and crepe like. I loved them then. These sound similar. I'm going to have to try them.

I promise to never flip off a ploye.

Is there a singular and a plural form of the word ploye? Do you have ployes for breakfast or just a lot of ploye?

If someone takes your last ploye.......are you de-ployed? or perhaps un-employed or are you, ex-ploye-ted?

Abby, we brought home several packages when we were up last. Of course, I froze some, but my husband loves them so they are all gone now. I like them better as well. He brought home some Moxie as well and only has one once in a while. I think he just now is down to less than 12 pack and that was from last September.
