    LOVE this – and so does monsieur le frog – I have just showed him – he prefers sweet to savoury, so suggested we could leave out the chilli, parmesan and rosemary and drizzle them with honey instead?
    Pumpkins are not in full swing here yet, but I think that my veggie daughters will love this recipe as part of a Halloween supper when I go to see them in two weeks (and counting!)
    Happy Sunday x

      Of course, you can make sweet pancakes, they are pretty tasty too! But sweet is sweet, and most of the time I prefer to eat something savory for my breakfast! 🙂
      Actually, we don’t celebrate Halloween, but I love how it does in other countries; here just funny things for children are sold in stores and parties in clubs are held (for adults of course), where you can wear whatever your imagination can create. 😀
      Have a funny Halloween!

    I’ve never had savory pancakes before, but I’ve actually been toying with an idea similar to this for a while. These sound so unique, and the photos are truly lovely!

    Your pumpkin pancakes look so delicious that it is making me hungry! I love the fact that it is the savory kind. I don’t like to eat too much sweet stuff for breakfast. Happy weekend.

    Those pancakes look absolutely delicious and I like the fact that they are savory for a change. I’m a fan of Jamie Oliver too. There is something sexy about him:)

  5. I absolutely adore this whole concept! I over-purchased pumpkin puree and admittedly, do much prefer it prepared in a savory dish than sweet. You’ve just solved both problems in one delicious recipe. 🙂

    I’m totally wowed by the simple shift that makes these savory! I am so used to sweet pumpkin treats this time of year that this was nice and refreshing, while no less cozy! ❤

    Your savoury pancakes look delicious, I love the idea of the sweetness of the pumpkin contrasting with the saltiness of the parmesan, perfect combination. Thanks for sharing 🙂
