Keep your house cool on summer days and enjoy a toasty hot pancake breakfast! The secret is cooking them right on the grill in your backyard. These aren't your average heavy pancakes, either. Like popovers, they're airy, crispy on the outside, and tender in the middle: the perfect vessel for seasonal berries and a dusting of powdered sugar.

  • 4 Nellie's Free Range Eggs
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) Nellie's Free Range Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 dash nutmeg
  • 2 handfuls of your favorite berries
  • Powdered sugar for sprinkling


  • Preheat grill to 425F. Divide melted butter evenly between 2 aluminum pie tins and swirl around to coat the tins well.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together milk, flour, eggs, and nutmeg, leaving batter slightly lumpy.
  • Divide batter evenly between the 2 greased pie tins, then place each pie tin on the grill. Grill uncovered for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown and fluffy.
  • Carefully remove pie tins from grill and slide pancakes onto two plates. Top with berries and powdered sugar and serve immediately.

Cooked this this morning according to directions and they did nothing until I closed the cover on the grill. Should the receipe say cook covered?? Thank you


Hi Ed, sorry to hear this recipe gave you some trouble at first. We appreciate your feedback and will definitely keep this in mind. We usually are able to cook these uncovered but can see where these might be stubborn if the air temp is so low it cools the inside of the grill down too much. In that case, we'd definitely want you to do what works best.
