What’s for Dinner Sunday: CSA Korean Pancakes

CSA Korean PancakeYes, Tiffany did an awesome version of these. My version is based off of this one, which has a slightly different makeup. My mom is visiting, and she also has a CSA in California so she also has lots of “kitchen sink” recipes. We’ve been trying hers (to be blogged soon), but we are both in love with the Tamago Yoko  from local restaurant Snack Bar.

The Korean version seems simpler and more adaptable, so that’s what we started from, but we add a ton of other stuff. About double the veggies from the original and one extra egg. So this is kind of a blend of the original recipe and our imitation of the Japanese version. Basically, you can shred and shove whatever veggies you have into this. It would probably work well with lots of the winter veggies, like beets, turnips, and greens.

They came out fantastic – we’re having the leftovers for breakfast tomorrow with fried eggs on top.
