Bacon, spinach and cream cheese stuffed pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 glove garlic, chopped
  • 4 rashers bacon
  • 1 bag spinach
  • 90g cream cheese
  • Lemon * Seasoning
  • Pancake
  • 50g plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 150ml milk
  • cheese

Method

  • Turn oven on to 200oC to warm
  • Finely chop onion and soften in a pan
  • Add garlic and cook out for a couple of minutes
  • Chop rashes of bacon. Add to the onions with a small nob of butter. Turn the heat up a little and let bacon cook and crisp up a little
  • Add the cream cheese, a squeeze of lemon and a splash of water
  • Let the mix cook together for 5 minutes
  • In the meantime heat a frying pan for the pancakes
  • Make 2 large pancakes as normal- the batter may seem a little thin but you want this as thick pancakes make a stodgy bake! The bigger your pan the better
  • Once you have 2 pancakes spoon the mixture into the middle of both in a line, roll like a burrito with the ends wrapped in on each other
  • Place in a baking dish. A tight fit is better to avoid any unrolling and spillage
  • Grate cheese on top (a mix of parmesan and cheddar is great but most work)
  • Pop under the grill for 5 minutes until the top of the pancakes are crisping up and the cheese bubbling
  • Eat with a bit of rocket or salad to lighten it up a bit! Or don’t…
