Colorado Corn Pancakes with Cheddar-Onion Sauce

Here’s another pancake that works both at home and outdoors and as a complement for any meal.  Pancakes don’t have to be a sweet breakfast food.  We’re fascinated with savory pancakes.  It’s a great, quick way to get bread with a meal without heating up the oven.

Again, unusual pancakes make great camping food—solid, stick-to-your-ribs food without a lot of fuss.  Use your imagination when making pancakes but we like this combination of corn and cheese in a bread.
