Holiday confusion.

Please explain to me this pancake day thing. Where I come from pancakes are thick and flat and served as a breakfast item only. I figured since I didn't have pancakes for breakfast today, I missed out. (Thin ones are called "crepes" and as they are fancy French food you are allowed to eat them for any meal.) What is pancake day about (other than Shrove Tuesday, which is something I also don't do or get)? How do you "celebrate" it? Are these pancakes or crepes, and are you supposed to roll them and/or fill them?

Me, favorite pancakes are blueberry with real maple syrup. Yum!

English pancakes (crepes with more egg, pretty much) are usually eaten for breakfast on weekends (especially if djm4 is in the vicinity), either with lemon juice and granulated sugar, or jam (or Other Non-Trad Stuff), but on Pancake Day often appear for pudding (US: dessert) or dinner. Savoury stuffed pancakes seem to not be in fashion in pubs etc atm.

Oh, I love savoury pancakes. I think the abomination that is Findus Crispy Pancakes was the nail in their culinary coffin, though.

I like to fill pancakes with a mixture of tomato, mushrooms and bacon, cover with a cheese sauce and breadcrumbs and bake in a hot oven until they're all golden and delicious. Mmmm. Sort of like canneloni, I suppose.
