A perfectly simple and delicious Savory Egg & Cheese Pancake.
Chickens!!! We finally got our small flock! Our whole family is so excited and we absolutely adore our chickie poos! They’ve all become happy and adjusted. The first morning we awoke to find that our girls left us eggs was so exciting – like Christmas morning.
These chickies have it made! My husband went above and beyond the normal chicken coop – he built these girls the high rise penthouse of chicken houses! Much attention, thought and love is put into the care of our chickens.
With the chickens come eggs. These are no ordinary eggs. These are our chickens eggs! These girls eat good – lots of fresh herbs, fruits and veggies with their feed. So what does that mean for you? You can expect to see a lot more egg recipes : )
This is the first recipe I made with our hens eggs. I’ve been making these egg and cheese pancakes forever now. It’s a very basic recipe focusing on simply the eggs and cheese. That being said – use the freshest eggs you can get your hands on and your favorite good quality cheese. These pancakes are quick and easy to make and use average, on hand ingredients. I make them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I serve it along side some fresh fruit, fried potatoes, bacon, sausage or even a bowl of grits.
I fry these egg and cheese pancakes up on an electric griddle. Just like a regular pancake, I wait for the edges to start to bubble and flip them. Both sides should be nicely golden browned. Serve these hot, right off the griddle. Top with a small dollop of sour cream or eat as is.
That’s it. Quick, easy and delicious. This has always been a family favorite and I’m sure we’ll be eating it a lot more frequently with the flux of eggs we’ll have. You can season these pancakes up however you like, add some fresh herbs, finely diced veggies or perhaps some crumbled bacon – this is a wonderful recipe to get creative with!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I do hope you enjoy this recipe and I’d love to hear all about it! Happy Cooking!
