  • Interesting. I can see it being used as a filler. I bet it tastes good though. I might give this one a try! Do you know how to make Scallion Pancake? I use to order out at my favorite Chinese restaurant and they always had Scallion pancakes on the menu. They taste soooooo good. But then I moved and I can’t find anyone that knows how to make them. I was addicted to it. LOL
