Roasted Acorn Squash Pancakes

Mooooore pancakes! (but you have to say it like, “Heeeeeeere’s Johnny!”)

Not the Shining one. The Johnny Carson one.

OMG, speaking OF: now that it’s October, Aaron and I are starting to put together a scary movie list to go through this month leading up to Halloween. It’s our annual Weidner tradition. No one can stop us. Not even Jack Torrance. (read: except for Jack Torrance)

What should we add to the list this year? What are your all-time favorite scary movies ever ever ever? Old and classic, new and weird, anything goes.

Wait. You don’t think my scared and frazzled nerves will transmit to the babies, do you? Should we skip it this year? Will I turn them into little nervous nilly willy hoodlums tearing the streets apart by the time they’re five? Well, I mean like, even more hoodlumy?

I’m sure it’s fine. Right? Great. Now I’m worried. I’m sure this isn’t helping either. UGH.

What was I saying?

Oh yeah! MOOOOOORE PANCAKES. (the Johnny Carson one)

Except these are actually savory. With sautéed shallots in them. And roasted acorn squash. And a little cinnamon and nutmeg. And whipped cream on top because pregnancy.

Make it happen because I cried a lake when I ate these. A frickin’ lake. All over my very important black tank top that’s embarrassingly too tight now.

Roasted. Acorn. Squash. Pancakes. You. Guys.

(If the link doesn’t work, I’m sorry. They were undergoing some maintenance yesterday and I still seem to be having trouble. Maybe it will work for you. Maybe it won’t. Maybe Jack Torrance is behind this whole thing.)

    I hope you did what any smart pregnant woman would do and ate this whole thing. Oh... so scary movies. I'm not big into the newer slasher films... have no desire to see some of the things they show. But I do love The Shining. And The Exorcist. And The Others. And Session 9. And Zodiac (does that count???). And Shadow of the Vampire. And Let The Right One In.

    Oh man, I have acorn squash on the brain today! It was my post today too (well not pancakes!), but then the blog crashed and all hell broke lose. Ugh, HATE tech stuff. Anyway I totally dig the pancakes. They are kind of awesome!

    This is so creative, I would never think to put acorn squash in pancakes. Yum!

    Children of the Corn, an oldie but so creepy. That movie is why children absolutely terrify me sometimes, especially when singing in unison. Kind of want to watch that movie now though, and eat these pancakes.

    I don't know if it's out yet, but The Conjuring was fantastic!

    Event Horizon is Sci-Fi and pretty scary. It's one of my favorite scary movies, anyway!

    These are so festive! I just love Autumn recipes.

    The first horror film I ever watched was Carrie (remake comes out this month!). I was maybe 6 (I remember being 5, but wow that seems young) and scarred forever. The same night I saw A Nightmare on Elm Street. Johnny Depp tied down with tongues on his bed still haunts me, though there are worse things than Johnny Depp in your dreams. Off to get pancakes!

    The link works for me. Also, your brain is a crazy, genius place. Shallots and whipped cream? Squash and cinnamon? Omg.

    I hate scary movies. The only two I have ever really watched messed me up forever. The Blair Witch and The excorcism of Emily rose. Seriously messed me up. Like I am still scared. On a nice note- love the pancakes!

    Roasted. Acorn. Squash. Pancakes. What is this sorcery!??
  14. Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie October 2, 2013 at 11:00 am #
    I've had sweet potato pancakes and pumpkin pancakes, but never acorn squash. I don't think I've even cooked with acorn squash before. I think I am missing out.

    What a great way to use that yummy acorn squash - savory pancakes !!!! This looks great, Bev!!!

    Pancakes are the perfect comfort food to eat before a scary movie marathon, right? Every October I make my husband watch the 3 scariest movies of all time (in my opinion)-- The Shining, Night Of The Living Dead, & Freaks (1932). He tends to be less fond of me this month. Maybe I should make him more pancakes.

    Beautiful pancakes! Hocus Pocus. Done. I'm one of those ninnies who FREAKS THE FRICK OUT during "The 6th Sense," so I'm unfortunately not much help in the "scary movies" department. So "Sixth Sense" too!

    What gorgeous pancakes, Bev!

    Gosh these look so fantastic! I would love to have a stack of these right now!

    Get those babies ready for scary movies. They rock, and so do these pancakes.
  21. Millie October 2, 2013 at 1:28 pm #
    My mind is official blown!!! Sounds like the perfect thing for brinner!!

    I'm having a love affair with savory pancakes lately. These need to be in my belly. As far as scary movies. Amityville horror Horror and Skeleton Key are my newer faves. I'm scared every time. Except when Ryan Reynolds takes his shirt off...that's not scary at all.

    These pancakes sound really good!
  24. Lauren @ Climbing Grier Mountain October 2, 2013 at 3:57 pm #
    Dude, major crushin' on these savory pancakes. And you should totally watch Shaun of the Dead. Best horror comedy around!

    Savory pancakes ROCK. MY. WORLD. These are going on the "must-make" list ... for realz.
  26. Meagan @ A Zesty Bite October 2, 2013 at 8:48 pm #
    These pancakes are AWESOME! I can't help you on the scary movie list because I am like the worlds biggest chicken and I get nightmares when I watch stuff like that.

    Savory pancakes are SO my jam! GIMMMME!
  28. Mary-Clay @ Cooking with the King October 2, 2013 at 10:07 pm #
    You are a crazy foodie genius. I need this in my life pronto. That's all.
  29. Stephie @ eat your heart out October 2, 2013 at 11:31 pm #
    These might be just the recipe I need. Boyfriend doesn't like sweets or baked goods much (WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIM), and he considers pancakes to fall into that category. But a savory pancake? That might just turn him to the right side of things.
  30. Brandon @ Kitchen Konfidence October 3, 2013 at 11:43 am #
    Such a beautiful stack!! I could just dive in right now!
  31. aida mollenkamp October 4, 2013 at 9:41 am #
    Seriously! I'm trying to be good right now and then you post these dreamy deals!
  32. Nutmeg Nanny October 4, 2013 at 7:20 pm #
    I am dying to get a bite of these gorgeous pancakes!! OH goodness, does this recipe sound delicious!

    Yummy in the tummy. Love savory pancakes and these look delicious.

    O.M.Geeeeeeeeee! My guy and I also have a 'count down' to Halloween tradition every year where we watch Halloween/scary movies (almost) every night from October 1 to Halloween! I love zombie movies/shows so 28 Days and 28 Weeks Later are a must as well as the "Halloween" series. I also like classics like The Birds, Psycho, etc. And we always throw in some fun kiddie Halloween movies like Hocus Pocus and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. What are some of y'all's favorite scary/Halloween movies?

    Looks, yummy. I now have two favorite blogs "Cooking With Mr. C." and yours. Keep up the great work. Didi

    Hey Bev, We stumbled across your blog and liked this Roasted Acorn Squash Pancake recipe of yours, so much, in fact, that we mentioned it on our latest blog post. We wanted to make sure you saw it too. Thanks for sharing!!

    I made these pancakes for breakfast this morning and they are amazing! I loved them so much that after my fiance and I ate I hid the rest from my son and his friend because I want to eat the leftovers with the chicken I'm making for dinner tonight. Now I need to buy about 12 more acorn squash so I can eat more :)
