Savory Pancakes in a Skillet

Not many know that you can have pancakes as a savory dish since they are usually enjoyed as a sweet breakfast. Try this savory pancake recipe to switch up your morning routine, or to satisfy those without a sweet tooth. It’s filled with bacon, cheese and delicious green bell peppers for a flavorful start of the day. 

I love this skillet pancakes with bacon recipe because it’s an breakfast with tons of yummy variations. It’s a simple baked pancake which is so much easier than flipping! A savory pancake is also a great side dish in place of dinner rolls.

Ingredients Needed

  • Bacon: 4 slices of bacon and diced small to cook evenly
  • Green bell pepper: sliced into cubes
  • Onion: medium onion and diced
  • Pancake mix: I’m using Krusteaz Protein Pancake Mix but you can use any kind you like
  • Milk: to mix in the pancake mix
  • Egg: one large egg to bind the pancake together
  • Cheese: the star of the recipe. Use any cheese you like.

Be sure to see the recipe card below for full ingredients & instructions!

Expert tips

  • Bake this in a skillet for ease and less cleaning, but make sure your skillet is oven safe.
  • Don’t have an oven safe skillet? Just pour the mixture into a 9×13-inch pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  • I love the sweet and salty combo of syrup with bacon pancakes, but you can also serve them with butter.
