Top sweet corn pancakes with tangy sour cream or fold crisp bacon into the batter. Fry carrot scallion pancakes in duck fat for a light umami taste for your evening pancake dinner

Potato Pancakes With Wheat Germ

Kretschmer's potato pancakes aren’t just for special occasions. Make them as a side dish at dinner or for brunch on the weekend. Try serving them with smoked salmon and Greek yogurt for a savory dish, or go more traditional, pairing them with yogurt, apple sauce, or even some maple syrup.

Mung Bean Pancakes

Mung beans may not be a familiar ingredient to many cooks here, but these legumes are popular throughout much of Asia, and are becoming easier to find here. They can range in color from green to yellow to black, taste a little sugary, and are sold whole, split, or hulled. Opt for the hulled variety, which means you can skip the soak.

In India, they are commonly used in curries like moong dal. Here, they are utilized in a popular and traditional Korean dish, often served at Seollal, the Lunar New Year. — Will Budiaman

Pulled Pork Pancakes

There’s a supremely popular restaurant in Vancouver that specializes in brunch. I generally don’t mind a bit of a wait for good food, but lines out the door and wait times of over an hour and a half are a bit much, even for me. Sometimes, though, waiting is worth it when you come across that genius restaurant dish that seems easy enough to make at home. After tasting pulled pork pancakes myself, I tried my hand at making my own, and once I figured out the recipe, there was no looking back. — Stephanie Le, author of Easy Gourmet

Summer Corn Pancakes

“When fresh corn is abundant during the summer months, it seems I am always gratefully decobbing and making these tasty pancakes. I chop half of the corn kernels because they are a great contrast to the whole corn kernels. Bacon and fried green tomatoes are delicious accompaniments.” — Kerry Dunnington, author of This Book Cooks

Feta and sweet potato pair beautifully in this dinnertime pancake recipe, which is the ultimate marriage of sweet and savory. The best part? You don't even need to roast the sweet potatoes; you just grate them right into a bowl and mix them up with the other ingredients. These pancakes taste great with some thick Greek yogurt. — Ashley Fahr
