Savory Pancake Recipes That Are Great Anytime

savory pancake recipes

I have mentioned many times that I just love breakfast for dinner. After all, a hearty breakfast is not only filling and tasty but very economical. And while many people choose to cook big breakfasts in the morning I rarely do. We keep breakfast and lunches simple around here and plan something bigger for dinner. And these savory breakfast pancake recipes make a great beakfast for dinner (aka brinner).

Below are a few savory pancake recipes that are so worth trying. Some may sound a bit odd but the taste unbelievable.

These recipes also give me an excuse to pull out my trusty electric griddle more often.

odd to me, but they remind me of the corn fritters that my aunt used to make when I was a child. I don’t remember exactly how she made them but I just loved them topped with butter and maple syrup.

Now that I have this recipe it will be a regular part of my menu rotation. These are tasty and filling as is but I like to serve with a side of scrambled eggs and applesauce for a tasty, yet frugal dinner.

Don’t you love those recipes where you have all the ingredients on hand? This egg and cheese pancake recipe calls for plenty of staple ingredients and you can use whatever cheese you happen to have on hand.

The pancakes do call for fresh thyme but I am sure dried will do in a pinch. Or if you are like me, you can experiment with other herbs that you have on hand.

Amanda from Crafty Cooking Mama suggests serving these with a dollop of sour cream.

I just love this all in one meal idea. Each person gets their own stack of pancakes that is garnished with spinach and topped with a fried egg.

These pancakes also feature sun dried tomatoes as well as other simple ingredients such as sour cream.

The spinach is squeezed with a little lemon to make it the perfect companion to complete the meal.
