Course Breakfast
Cuisine Vegetarian
Time 10 minutes
Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 2 mid-sized pancakes
Calories 438kcal

Ingredients

  • ½ tbsp butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/5 cup cream cheese (3/5 cup = 2.5oz)

Instructions

  • Add some butter to a pan and stick it on medium heat.
  • Throw the cream cheese and eggs into a bowl and mix with a fork until creamy. If you’re planning to, now is the time to add some extras. But be careful! The batter is quite runny, so I wouldn’t add things like nuts.
  • Alternatively you can use a blender, but remember to let the batter sit for a minute or two! It’ll cook better then.
  • Off it goes into the pan. I usually make just one big pancake, but two medium-sized ones would also work perfectly fine.
  • Enjoy!

  1. Thank you for including my recipe among so much beautiful food!

  2. Thanks for including my recipe Howie! Love all the low-carb options! what a great roundup! Will share.

  3. Some interesting and delicious-looking vegan options like Mini Avocado & Hummus Quesadilla. Really happy I’ve stumbled upon this roundup, thank you for sharing!

  4. My daughter is vegetarian, has been for about 3 years, and the rest of our household is not. I struggle to find dishes to make for her that aren’t carb loaded and dishes the rest of our family will eat also. I’m tired of making separate dinners so I think a lot of these would be great for all!

  5. The link for the green bean recipe no longer takes you to a recipe. Maybe see about that. But these are awesome and I will be using many of them! Thanks!

    Being a vegetarian really doesn’t stop you from having a wide spectrum of dishes to choose from and these low carb dishes are a real delight to enjoy.
