What to Put in Savory Pancakes?
My veggie pancakes are made with diced colorful garden-fresh peppers. But you can add any savory item of your choice. Try one of the following:
- Freshly chopped herbs such as basil, parsley, or chives.
- An assortment of peppers – jalapeno, bell, sweet, poblano, serrano, or habanero, just to name a few.
- Sautéed meats such as bacon, sausage, ham, or seafood.
- A little sprinkle of Pico De Gallo.
- Small pieces of broccoli crowns.

What is Bisquick Pancake Mix?
Bisquick is a baking pancake mix that can be found in your local grocery store. Bisquick baking and pancake mix has evolved over the years and now comes in different styles.
There is Bisquick Heart Smart Pancake and Baking Mix, Bisquick Original Pancake & Baking Mix (which is what this recipe uses), Bisquick Gluten Free Pancakes & Baking Mix, and a Bisquick Protein Pancakes & Baking Mix.
My savory pancake is a simple recipe that is used with a mix so there is no need to add baking powder, baking soda, melted butter, wheat flour, all-purpose flour, eggs, or sugar.
How to Make Savory Pancakes?
Preheat the Blackstone Griddle to medium heat. If you don’t have a griddle, then you can use a non-stick pan.
Gather all the ingredient to make your savory pancakes recipe. Dice your desired vegetables in small pieces.
Prepare your favorite basic pancake batter. I like to use Bisquick pancake mix.
Measure the desired pancake mix into a large bowl, add the egg, and milk to the bowl. Use a whisk to combine all the ingredients so that you have a smooth pancake batter.
If the batter is too thick, add a splash of milk until you reach the right consistency. If the batter is too runny, add a little bit more of the pancake mix.
Savory Pancakes – Two Ways
You can make your savory pancakes two ways.
1) If you don’t like crunchy vegetables in your finished pancakes, you will want to sauté them up first before adding them to the pancake batter. Add a little oil to the hot griddle and lightly sauté your vegetable.
Lightly grease the Blackstone Griddle with cooking spray or your favorite oil. When the vegetables are tender crisp, pour the pancake batter onto the hot flat top griddle in the desired size that you would like.
While the top is still doughy, carefully sprinkle some of the sautéed vegetables on top of the pancake. You do not want clumps of vegetables.
Just so there is a piece of vegetable here and there. When the bottom side of the pancake is golden brown, use the griddle spatula, and flip them over.
Cook the second side till it is golden brown. Make sure the center of the pancake is cooked and not doughy.
2) If you like crunchy vegetables in your finished pancakes, then pour the pancake batter onto the hot greased griddle in the desired size.
Sprinkle a few pieces of the diced vegetables onto the doughy pancake batter. With a griddle spatula, flip the pancakes over when they are nice and golden brown.
When the second side is golden brown, remove from the griddle. Make sure the pancakes are fully cooked.
Keep warm until ready to serve. Top with your favorite sweet or savory toppings.

Veggie Pancake Troubleshooting
If the pancakes are thin and limp when cooked up, add more pancake mix to make your batter thicker.
My pancakes are done on the outside, but they are not done on the inside. If this is happening to you then the griddle is too hot. Turned down the heat on your griddle and cook the pancakes at a slower pace. That way you give it time for the pancakes to cook all the way through.
If the pancakes are clumpy and super thick, you are going to need to add more milk to the batter. Use a whisk to help thin the pancake mix so that it is not too runny and not too thick.
My vegetables are raw after making the pancakes. If you don’t like uncooked vegetables, then sauté them until they are tender crisp on the hot griddle right before making the pancakes.
Don’t want to use regular milk in this recipe? You can substitute almond milk, or soy milk.

Savory Pancakes – FAQ
You don’t always have to put syrup on your pancakes. Try topping your savory pancakes with a dollop of sour cream or crème fresh. Add a scoop of Pico De Gallo or slices of fresh garden tomatoes. Sprinkle on your favorite shredded cheese, bacon crumbles, or dice scallions.
Add smoked paprika or cayenne or even sliced jalapeños. And if you are really adventurous, shake a few drizzles of hot sauce over your savory pancakes. Drizzle your fluffy pancakes with some maple syrup.
Savory Pancakes Recipe
For the full recipe and nutrition calories, click below for the recipe card.
- Bisquick Pancake Mix 2 cups
- Milk 1 cup
- Eggs 2 eggs
- Peppers, Sweet, Small Diced 1/4 cup
- Onion, Sweet, Small Diced 2 Tablespoons
- Gather all your ingredients to make the savory pancakes.
- Combine the Bisquick pancake mix, milk and eggs in a mixing bowl. With a whisk, mix together to make a smooth batter.
- Pre-heat the Blackstone Griddle (gas - set on low to medium heat) (electric - set on 300°F). Lightly grease the griddle with cooking spray or a light coating of oil. When the griddle is hot, use a #40 or #20 portion scooper, Blackstone Pancake Dispenser, or pour some of the pancake batter to form a round pancake.
- Quickly sprinkle the diced vegetables on the top of the pancake batter.
- Let the veggie pancakes cook until the bubbles start to come up threw the pancake which is about 2 minutes per side. Flip the savory pancake over and cook on the second side until it's golden-brown.
- Remove the fully cooked pancakes from the griddle and stack on a serving platter. Serve hot with your favorite toppings.
- Slow and low – Make sure to cook the savory pancakes at a low temperature so that they do not burn.
- If you don't have a Blackstone Griddle, that's ok! Combine the pancake batter as normal. Use a non-stick skillet pan on the stove over low-medium heat and cook like you would on a griddle. Work in several batches until all the pancakes are cooked
- Use a griddle spatula with a good edge on it so that you can get under the veggy pancakes easily to flip it over. There's nothing worse than having a awesome looking pancake, but it gets ruined when trying to
flip it over on the hot griddle.
- If using a # 40 scooper you will get about 18, 3-inch savory pancakes. When using a # 20 scooper, you will get about 12, 4 to 5-inch cooked pancakes.
- After the Bisquick pancake batter has been combined in the bowl with a whisk, let the batter rest for a couple minutes and then check for thickness. If the pancake batter is too thick, add more milk. If it's too thin, add more pancake mix.
- Don't over beat the homemade pancake batter.
- If you have any pancake batter leftover, place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 1 day.
