Cheesy Green Onion Pancakes

"A savoury pancake that can be topped with salsa or pasta sauce, dipped in ketchup, or spread with anything cheesy, salty, and savoury!"

Ready In:
7-8 pancakes


  • 1 bunch green onion, chopped
  • 1 cup grated cheese (soy-cheese can be substituted)
  • pancake mix (see directions)


  • Make your favourite recipe or pancake mix without adding the liquids. I used two cups of dry mix from a box.
  • Add the cheese and onions.
  • Add the liquids, using slightly more liquid than is required (about 1/4 cup more milk/water), and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Be sure to scrape the bottom as you mix or there will more than likely be dry stuff not mixed in - if you wait to find out and stir after, you risk the pancakes being dense from overstirring, which causes gluten to form. This should make enough batter for 7-8 pancakes (about 3-4 cups total). The mixture will be thick and lumpy, but this is a good thing!
  • Scoop about 1/3 cup at a time into a non-stick or oiled frying pan set on medium-low heat.
  • Cook pancakes, flipping over every few minutes. A good way to tell when a pancake is ready to flip is by the appearance of bubbles towards the middle of the batter. With this mix, the batter is too thick to wait that long and the pancakes should be flipped at the appearance of a few bubbles. It never hurts to do an "edge" check by lifting up the side of a pancake with a spatula to check the colour. A golden-brown signals that the cake can be flipped!
  • Garnish with your favourite savoury topping and enjoy!

  1. Very tasty! Will definitely be having these again. I think I will use more cheese next time, though.
