For the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—though we love to try new dishes, your post doesn’t have to be a recipe. We’re pretty relaxed over here, and stories and photos are as welcome as menus and recipes. When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the button to include with your post. It ties us together visually. Then fill in the boxes of this linky tool to join the fun! [edited: the link tool is no longer functional, so it was removed in 2021]
Food on Fridays with Ann
I made a little too much gluten-free spaghetti the other day. Even after heating up leftovers, I still have a portion to work with.
That’s when I remembered the spaghetti pancake.
I’ll be making one for lunch tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s the recipe:
BASIC SPAGHETTI PANCAKE
- 3 cups cooked spaghetti
- 4 eggs, beaten
- salt and pepper (to taste)
- butter or oil for frying
- Add-in ideas (experiment with combo that suits you): chopped fresh herbs, diced tomatoes, prosciutto or bacon, cheese, small diced vegetables such as zucchini (dice very small so it will cook through or saute slightly in a separate pan), minced onion or garlic.
Beat the eggs. Add the cooked spaghetti to the eggs (or add eggs to the spaghetti) and mix until coated. Mix in the salt and pepper and any add-ins. Heat the oil or butter in a large frying pan (it should be well oiled). Pour the noodle mixture into the pan and allow to set on the bottom. Run spatula around the side of the pancake, to prevent sticking. Peer under the bottom until the pancake begins to brown. Turn over by sliding it onto a plate and putting the fry pan on top and flipping over. Cook until slightly brown on both sides and the center has firmed. Turn out onto a plate and cut into wedges.
This is another one of those foolproof recipes that frees me to be creative with little risk of failure. Recipe originally found at Tea and Cookies.

What a great idea! Simple to make and I’ll bet it is really delicious. I’m always up for pasta.

I almost always make too much spaghetti by mistake, so I love the idea of spaghetti pancake. What a great way to use up leftovers! I’ve shared a quick bread made from sweet potatoes this week. Thank you for hosting!

I am trying to imagine that the spaghetti must take the place of the flour for a pancake, and the veggies and cheese are an added delight as you would to make an omelet. All in one for a tasty and healthy meal.
