We’ve all heard breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But one dad is trying to show that it doesn’t have to be a chore.

Nathan Shields, an illustrator and math teacher who lives in Washington state, posted a YouTube video of a flute he made out of a pancake.

Using a plastic squeeze bottle, he squirts the batter onto the pan in a square shape, leaving three holes in the middle, to make a pancake that he can roll up to make the body of the flute. Then he adds a mouthpiece (not edible) to one end.

Once his son and daughter get a hold of a whisk and a spatula, he’s got a whole band set up in the kitchen.

Bon appétit!
