Settle a minor major! disagreement please.

Is it acceptable to have pancakes only as the main meal tomorrow night or should it be a main meal then pancakes as dessert?

Whichever has the most votes for we will do I am cooking and will do whatever I want anyway grin

I personally wouldn't have pancakes for dinner, it would either be breakfast or dessert. No idea why though

Pancakes with bacon for main...then pancakes with berries and chocolate sauce for dessert. We just do a massive pile of pancakes and everyone just stuffs there faces with whatever they want.

Breakfast or goûter (around 16:00)

Savoury pancakes (chicken at our house) and then sweet pancakes for dessert.

Also are you forgetting breakfast and lunch are also pancakes confused

It's pancake day!!!!

I do them for supper all the time with things like cream cheese and wilted spinach, or homemade tomato sauce and grated cheddar. Then for pudding we have lemon and sugar/maple syrup or Nutella & banana ones.

We usually have savoury pancakes for main (last year was turkey, bacon and cabbage) then sweet for pudding.

Why not make a big batch then put out a variety of savoury and sweet toppings? I’ve done that with the DC before. Then they just made their own.

A couple of years ago we did a full American breakfast (pancakes, bacon, sausage, egg, maple syrup) as our main meal on pancake day. It was bloody lovely. Won’t be doing it again this year though, stupid diet angry

My mum is very much of the pancakes are for pudding persuasion, but I'm not cooking dinner and pancakes on a school night, so pancakes for dinner here.

Plus who has room for dinner followed by pancakes? Even the DC don't want them if they've had a meal first.

Pancakes for tea! Anything else is try-hard nutritionally and Not In The Spirit. IMHO grin

(Scrambled egg etc & savoury stuff for breakfast just to redress the day’s balance, though!)

Both! Savpity with melted cheese, ham and crumbled walnuts for main then with a choice of different sweet things for pudding. 😋

Dds bf is coming round and this year I am just doing pancakes. Lots and lots of pancakes.

Lalliella Mon 12-Feb-18 19:37:24

Main meal. It’s pancake day!

DH always has pancakes for his dinner on pancake day, and lots of them. I don't know how he doesn't make himself feel sick.

I don't. I have my normal dinner, then one, maybe two if I'm being really greedy pancakes as a dessert. I also give DS his normal dinner followed by a pancake for pud. He is not yet two though.

So it's a split in this house! Sorry not much help to you.

misskatamari Mon 12-Feb-18 19:38:24

Main and pudding here. Bacon and cheese etc for the main, then Nutella, fruit and squirt cream for pudding!

ItsNachoCheese Mon 12-Feb-18 19:38:25

We will have pancakes with butter and some with nutella for breakfast tomorrow

OutyMcOutface Mon 12-Feb-18 19:38:30

Pancakes are only acceptable for breakfast/brunch. Crepes are good for both dinner and pudding depoending ok the filling/topping.

demirose87 Mon 12-Feb-18 19:38:37

More of a pudding, but my kids have them for tea as they don't eat a lot, I make them with chocolate spread and some with syrup. The younger kids have Scotch pancakes.

pastabest Mon 12-Feb-18 19:38:39

We usually have them for the main meal, they are surprisingly filling.

I use delia's recipe.

I actually forgot it was Shrove Tuesday tomorrow though but by happy coincidence tomorrow we were already meal planned to have duck so it will now be chinese duck pancakes.

minipie Mon 12-Feb-18 19:39:38

I'm never organised enough to have loads of savoury toppings in so it's generally pancakes for pudding (the "main course" is something pretty small in recognition of this)

ChristmasAccountant Mon 12-Feb-18 19:39:46

Pancakes should only ever be sweet!

Idontdowindows Mon 12-Feb-18 19:39:55

Pancakes are always a main meal in our house.
