Happy Shrove Tuesday – How to make a main meal with pancakes

I love Shrove Tuesday and every year I say to myself, “why don’t I eat more pancakes all year round?” I love them and can easily eat a dozen on pancake day – I’ve already had a couple for lunch today! But pancakes can get a bit boring with just lemon and sugar (although I will definitely be eating this combo later for my pudding!) and I’ve been thinking about ways to make pancakes into a suitable base for a main meal. And this is my favourite: Roast beef Yorkshire wraps. The combo of sliced beef rolled inside a thick pancake gives the taste of roast beef and yorkshire pudding, and can easily be made  into a main meal with chips or roast potatoes, peas and lashings of thick gravy.

Batter ingredients: 250ml semi-skimmed milk, 2 large eggs, 7 oz flour, salt and pepper seasoning

Whisk up the ingredients for the batter and fry a 2 pancakes per person using a decent amount of batter in a small non-stick frying pan (I use Fry Light so that the pancakes/wraps aren’t too oily). The batter recipe is basically the same as you’d make for pancakes but with a little extra flour to make a thicker, more yorkshire-puddingy pancake. Next warm through your ready-sliced beef in the oven and lay the slices on your pancakes and roll up to make 2 yorkie wraps per person. If you fancy a little horseradish or mustard, spread a thin layer onto the pancakes before adding your beef slices for a little extra zing!

Serve with yummy chips or roast potatoes, using Fry Light again for a low-calorie version, gravy and peas/veg of your choice. Delicious! Let me know if you try this recipe today and what you think of it! And please get in touch if you have any other savoury recipes for pancakes 🙂 yum!
