16 Savory Pancakes and Waffles to Eat for Breakfast (or Dinner)

September 14, 2015

Breakfast for dinner is one of our all-time favorite treats: Waffles, omelets, and pancakes are all special on their own, but somehow it really feels like we're getting away with something when we get to wash down a short stack with a glass of red.

But waffles and pancakes need not be sweet only! There are mean zucchini pancakes, socca waffles, and endless fritters to be had—and they're just as good for breakfast as they are for dinner. Here are 16 ways to make a savory stack:
