Don't get me wrong, I love a sweet treat. One of my favourite pancake memories from childhood is my dad making crepe style pancakes and filling them with cherry pie filling. As an adult, I might have to recreate that with a slug of amaretto.... But it's easy to forget that pancakes- whether you prefer american style or crepe style don't have to be sweet. I got in on the pancake action over the weekend and decided to try out a post-run brunch of savoury protein pancakes. I wasn't entirely sure how it would work out, but it all came good on the plate!
We used MyProtein unflavoured pancake mix (1 50g serving made 3 pancakes which we split between 2 of us) mixed with 1 teaspoon of dijon mustard and about 150ml of milk and cooked per instructions.
To top, yes, that is a a decadent portion of smoked salmon, avocado tossed in lemon juice & poached eggs, all finished off with a light drizzle of sriracha sauce.
Let me know if you give savoury pancakes a go, I'd love some more ideas to temper all the sweet recipes about.
