Stuffing pancake tacos with a traditional scrambled egg and bacon combination is higher in protein and another great option. This combination is similar to our Sausage, Egg and Cheese Casserole, but it entices kids to wake up and have breakfast better.

Why This Recipe Works

  • Pancake tacos help mix up the breakfast routine with a quick and easy recipe.
  • Why use butter and syrup when you can make a basic pancake look and taste so much better!
  • It can be tough to get elementary aged kids motivated to get up and eat, so we like fun food that helps get the day started easier.
  • Frozen pancakes that are heated in the microwave save time and taste just as good as homemade pancakes or these fun mini pancakes.
  • This copycat Cracker Barrel and iHop recipe also makes a great after school snack.
  • Using pancakes is like a crepe but with a better ratio of the outside wrapper to the filling

Ingredients Needed:

  • Pancakes – Buying prepared pancakes saves the most time, but making your own is fine too. We use pancakes that are roughly 4″ across.
  • Cream Cheese – makes the filling rich and creamy.
  • Sugar – sweetens the filling a bit.
  • Whipped Topping – lightens the filling and makes it easy to squirt out of a baggie.
  • Fruit – we like a combination of berries and bananas.
  • Drizzle – chocolate syrup, melted peanut butter or maple syrup finish off meal nicely.
Ingredients to make Pancake tacos are pancakes, cream cheese, Cool Whip, sugar, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries on a wooden counter top.

Pancake Taco Topping Ideas

  • Chocolate syrup or Nutella
  • Peanut butter for more protein – melts easily in the microwave to drizzle on top
  • Mini chocolate chips or sprinkles for a birthday celebration
  • Sliced fruit like strawberries and bananas
  • Whole blueberries, blackberries and raspberries
  • Can also use the basic eggs and bacon or sausage

How to Make Pancake Tacos

Wash berries and let dry. Chop if needed.

Soften the cream cheese and stir or beat until smooth.

Add sugar and mix well.

Cream cheese and sugar beat together in a white mixing bowl.

Use a spatula to fold in whipped topping.

Cool whip folded into a cream cheese mixture in a white mixing bowl.

Place the bag in your hand and use a spatula in the other hand to help fill the bag. Try to push the filling as close to the opening in the corner as possible. This should also help fill the palm of your hand to make squeezing the filling into the tacos easier.

I typically use about half of the filling at a time.

Cut the corner off of a baggie to be the size that you want the filling to come out. We like to use about a one inch opening.
