Scallion pancakes are the croissants of China. Made with spring onions or chives, They’re aromatic, flaky, satisfying and breakfast of champions.
I couldn’t find stories on the origin of scallion pancakes, but mostly likely it was a northern Chinese creation. The weather there is like that of North Dakota, far away from water and fairly cold temperatures throughout a year. Not many vegetables could grow happily there, but scallions are survivors. They thrive in that climate.
