The sauerkraut in this recipe can also be substituted with jarred kim chi if you like. Or you can add a diced chili pepper to make it spicy.

Serves: 4


  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 scallions, minced
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup sauerkraut
  • 1 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄3 cup rice flour
  • 1 1⁄2 cups water
  • 1 small potato, peeled and shredded
  • 1 small onion, skinned and shredded
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1⁄2 cup mustard or dipping sauce


  • Combine, sour cream, Dijon mustard, scallions, and 1 Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours before serving.
  • Place the sauerkraut in a small strainer and let it sit over a bowl for 30 minutes. Squeeze it regularly to remove as much of the moisture as possible. Combine the flours in a medium bowl. Slowly stir in the water until it is thoroughly mixed. Add the drained sauerkraut, potato, onion, and bacon to the batter. Stir until it is combined.
  • Place the griddle over medium-high heat. Add half of the oil to the pan and swirl so it is evenly coated.
  • Pour one-quarter of the batter slowly onto the griddle. Cook for 3 minutes, or until the bottom is golden and bubbles have risen to the top. Flip it over, press against the pancake with the back of your spatula, and cook for 3 minutes. Press firmly. If batter comes through on the top, flip and cook for 1 minute before pressing to make sure the center is cooked. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
  • Transfer to a serving platter and serve with mustard dipping sauce.
