Fabio's Perfect Savory Pancakes

Fabio whips up a super-simple and perfect breakfast, his blueberry and ricotta pancakes.


  • Pancakes are the comfort food of the world, great anytime of day. Blending the blueberries into the batter early makes a beautiful pancake. Adding ricotta at the end gives the pancake a perfect richness.

  • The key to fluffy pancakes is to let the batter get thick but not too thick, it needs to be just a touch runny. Use an extra hot griddle and pour the batter in one easy motion.

  • Fabio makes his a savory pancake so top it before serving with olive oil instead of syrup.
