Quick discard starter pancake

Left over rye starter discard combined with a big pinch of baking soda, a sprinkle of salt and pepper and one egg (which in my case doubled the batter volume.)  Mix with a fork and pour into a cold pan. Turn up the temp to medium high and sprinkle the flattening pancakebread with green onions ringlets. Flip when pancake sets to toast onions.  :)

Happy New Year!

... because it looks sooooo good! I'm new to baking, and have been getting my proverbial feet wet by starting with yeast breads. I'm finally mentally ready to start swimming into a little deeper waters, and am registered for a beginner sourdough class 3 weeks from now. One thing I figured out is internet videos etc can only get you so far when it comes to how things feel. I'm hoping the class will shorten my learning curve and cut a few flops out of my education, lol. Looking forward to having discard to have fun with, as bonus material to sourdough breads!!

and I suggest serving it hot on a warm plate giving everyone a set of chopsticks to tear off pieces at the table.  Watered down soy sauce or fish sauce makes a fast dip.
