Loudoun’s Low Carb Cheesy Flapjacks

Low carb pancakes may not sound like much fun, but cheesy flapjacks? Sign me up!

During the American Revolution, Loudoun County was known as America’s Bed Basket, as the ultra fertile soil produced the grains that fueled America’s first defenders. Fast-forward to the present day and the incredibly rich soil remains, covered in Western Loudoun by much smaller, efficient farms.

According to the most recent USDA Ag Census, the average size of a Loudoun farm is approximately 100 acres. In reality, a few large farms hold up that average, which is typically less than 50 acres for the median farm. For most farms, that isn’t enough space to run a profitable grain operation, so Loudoun-grown flour is a rarity.

Soft cheese and eggs are perfectly sourced from Loudoun Farms, so enjoy making a new take on a timeless classic: cheesy flapjacks!
