Staffordshire Oatcakes are a great alternative to bread if you can actually get them because they’re pretty niche to Staffordshire in the UK, but you can find them in other areas such as North England and Wales.
If you’ve never had one, they’re very much like an oaty savory pancake which are often filled with cheese or breakfast items such as sausage or bacon. They’re also really nice on their own spread with butter.
However you like them, if you’re wondering about weights and calories so you can work out how many are in your serving, I’ve put together this article to help you to find out what you need to know.
