Savoury Pancake Meal Ideas for Small Kiddos
Cooking up a storm at home? Its hard to get the smallies to eat a “normal” dinner when they know pancakes are shortly on offer, why not make lunch/dinner into a pancake meal of sorts for the small kiddos!
Make your pancake batter as normal, and before frying add in 2 complementary savoury ingredients … corn and grated cheddar, peas with pancetta/ham, diced pepper and finely chopped spinach..
Choose ingredients that are already cooked or that won’t suffer by being cooked in the short amount of time each pancake is touching the skillet. Serve with a side of greek yogurt for dipping with mixed berries. Voila – meal time accomplished!
