Eating Pancakes Saudi Style!

Mixing the foods of East and West is always an interesting experience. I continue to enjoy being exposed to traditional Saudi dishes and in turn like introducing my Saudi family to typical Western dishes too. While they have had old fashioned pancakes before served lavishly with pads of melted butter and maple syrup, today they decided to teach me how to enjoy pancakes “Saudi style.”

I made the pancakes in the usual way and served them up hot on a platter. My family members each put a hot pancake on their plate. But instead of first spreading butter on the pancake, they instead covered it with small slices of sharp white cheddar cheese. Next they dotted the cheese slices with honey. Once enough honey was placed over the cheese, they then proceeded to wrap up the pancake and eat it!
