Savory Swiss Cheese Pancakes with Mixed Berry Compote

Let's just say that this past weekend, I went pancake crazy.

After Saturday's cottage cheese pancakes, I got the desire to make a savory pancake with cheese.

My original plan was a pancake, egg, veggie sausage breakfast sandwich, but at the last moment, I decided to use up the slightly greenish potatoes before they turned bad. I made them into potato pancakes [not fried green potato pancakes].

Cheesy pancakes are good, and even better with a mixed berry compote. You want to know what else is good - boot camp. I can't wait for tomorrows class!

Savory Swiss Cheese Pancake Recipe (serves 4)

1 cup flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 egg
3 tbsp melted butter
3/4 cup milk
1 cup grated Swiss cheese

1. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. Make a hole in the centre of the flour and pour in the egg, milk, and butter. Mix until combined. Next, stir in the Swiss cheese. Cook pancakes on a griddle or frying pan, on medium heat, until tiny bubbles form. Then flip the pancake and cook until slightly brown.
