      This a wonderful twist on traditional pancakes, instead of a sweet and butterypancake, lets make them savory and perfect for a quick dinner.

      Basic pancake recipe

      1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

      2 tablespoons sugar- eliminate this ingredient for this recipe

      1 teaspoon baking powder

      1/2 teaspoon baking soda

      pinch of salt

      2 eggs

      1 1/2 cup buttermilk

      Mix above together, minus the sugar and add:

      1 cup grated cheese

      Set aside the batter and get together the following:

      1 cup diced ham

      1 cup frozen or canned English peas

      1. In a non stick skillet, over medium high heat pour your pancake batter intoskillet (I use a little butter or cooking spray to make sure they don"tstick). In the middle of pancake (before you flip them) add a little ham andpeas, sprinkle the ham and peas around the pancake to{}get a little inevery bite.2. Cook till bottom of pancake is brown, 1 or 2 minutes{}and flip thepancake over. Cook till that side{}is brown, keep warm till all pancakesare cooked and top with a sour cream and chives.

      Note: you can use a variety of vegetables or meats in this recipe, justwhatever you and your family likes. You can also use Bisquick or a pre-mixedpancake to make it easier.
