Bobby Flay stars as himself tonight on Portlandia‘s Brunch Special, attempting to make the perfect marionberry pancakes for Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein and show director Jonathan Krisel (pictured above). We don’t know if he’ll pull it off and, since we’ll be watching Bobby on Iron Chef America on Cooking Channel during the same time slot, we may never know*.
That’s okay though, because we do know the secret to scoring a Bobby Flay brunch any time we want — follow his recipes from Brunch @ Bobby’s and make it at home. You don’t have to wait in any lines to enjoy his easy Silver Dollar Buttermilk-Pecan Pancakes with Bourbon Butter, or his Carrot Cake Pancakes with Maple-Cream Cheese Drizzle or his thirty-minute Orange Ricotta Pancakes with Caramelized Fig and Pistachio Compote. Just top one of his pancake recipes with marionberries and you’ll be living like Fred Armisen for a meal. S’cool with us.
Check out a clip from Portlandia’s Brunch Special — a Hearts of Darkness-type documentary about the making of their season finale — after the jump.
*Okay, we’ll DVR it. Both air at 11pm ET.
