Pancakes are not only for breakfast ! These Mushroom and Beef Filled Pancakes are perfect for dinner and I make them often.

Mushroom and Beef Filled Pancakes

 

In South-Africa the most basic pancake version, is most definitely pancakes, sprinkled with Cinnamon sugar and rolled up.

These an be found at almost 100% of any church bazaars, fetes, sport events and wherever else you expect a food vendor to be.

I remember my late Mom used to make something similar, also a pancake filled with a ground beef filling, but unfortunately can not remember exactly what/how her recipe was.

The savory filling options are also endless !  As long as the filling is not too saucy, it will be fine to fill the pancakes with.

Do remember however that these pancakes are thinner (almost like a crepe) as well as bigger than the usual breakfast pancakes.

I make them the size of a standard skillet bottom, which is just the right size to fill and fold. Add filling to one pancake first (about 3 heaped dessert spoonfuls), fold and see if your measurements are correct.

How to make savory filled pancakes:

Make the Pancakes and prepare the Filling as per the recipe below – place seam side facing down.

Absolutely delicious – serve warm or cold with a side salad or vegetables.

Another favorite is a Spinach and cream cheese filling, if you want to go for a vegetarian filled pancake. But, really the filling is up to you.

My favorite is and will probably always be the Mushroom and Beef filling.
