A neighbor of mine recently gave me a bunch of green onions. And by bunch, I don’t mean a few stalks banded together. I mean, a bunch. So many that I have been struggling to use them all. I mean, yes, you can add them to just about anything, but a little goes a long way, and adding to many can get too onion-y for my liking.

So I’ve been trying to find recipes that use them up, but that aren’t baked potatoes and stir-fries. This easy pancake recipe fit the bill perfectly. While the majority of the flavor in these pancakes definitely comes from scallions, I added some Everything Bagel seasoning, which gives them an unexpected kick. The Everything Bagel seasoning came in my Ava Jane’s Kitchen spice club membership, and it might be one of my favorites. Loaded with garlic, onion, and sesame seeds, it’s a great way to add flavor to just about anything.

Once you’ve made the batter, these are cooked in Ava Jane’s Kitchen Avocado Oil. I topped mine with sour cream, but they are delicious plain, and make a great unique side dish to your favorite meal. Or make them as an easy appetizer the next time you’re having a party. I guarantee, they will disappear faster than you can make them!
