Sausage & Cheese Savoury Pancakes


Love pancakes to death, but I just can't have only sweets for breakfast...but pan frying eggs, bacon and all the savoury frills would be too troublesome for my lazy ass. My lazy solution is...to throw savoury bits in and make savoury pancakes ^_^

These may look like ordinary sweet pancakes...

Wait 'til you get to see what's inside...

Recipe
- 1 cup self raising flour
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp chicken stock powder
- 1 tsp dry mixed herbs (thyme, rosemary, oregano, sage)
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil (or melted butter)
- 1/2 cup chopped sausages (I used Maid brand cheese cocktail sausages)
- 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl, wet in another. Make a well in the middle of dry ingredients, add wet ingredients, mix well, add chopped sausages and grated cheddar cheese. Heat up a non stick pan to medium heat, pour a ladleful of batter, (butter/oil isn't necessary for non stick pan) pan fry until you see bubbles and the edges dried out a little, flip, let cook for a bit and transfer to a plate. Repeat until all the batter's done. Serve with butter and if you like sweet-savoury flavor combo, maple syrup ^_^

Fluffy pancakes with savoury bits...


My kinda weekend breakfast ^_^

The sausage pieces are only visible from the butt of the pancakes :D

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Did you put maple syrup on them! Because that to me would be the ultimate. Sweet and salty.

yummy! I would love savory pancakes for a change too.

I'm the exact opposite...can't NOT have something sweet :P

Have you heard of the McGriddles? This reminds me of that, except obviously yours would be a thousand times better, being homemade and with REAL ingredients and stuff.

And if you like the combo of salty/sweet, there's this place in Kowloon City that does satay beef in HK style French toast which is soooo decadent!

I just discovered savoury french toast and now it is savoury pancakes! I recognize that tin of maple syrup in the background.

Yummy! We love pancakes made with Kamut Khorasan Wheat flour since it is full of so many vitamins and minerals. Besides that, they have an amazing flavor and texture! Thanks for sharing this!

That's one lucky bun! I didn't get that kind of breakfast when i was a bun. At least i don't think so. :P
