Savoury Pancakes

You could probably add anything and everything into a savoury pancake such as potatoes, Quorn pieces, sweet corn, peppers, onions, cheese, mushrooms, courgette…and the list can continue.

I sautéed potatoes, quorn pieces, sweet corn, onions and green peppers until cooked. Add a ladle of american pancake batter, spoon on savoury filling and spoon on another ladle of batter.
