Savoury pancakes

Start by making the pancake batter from eggs, flour and milk. Beat together vigorously until there are no lumps. Leave to one side. Some chemical reaction takes place when you leave the batter mix for a while. You will then need an assortment of chopped veggies for the filling and some leftover tomato sauce from dinner a few days ago.
Chop up the veggies and fry in a little oil until soft and then add the tomato sauce and leave to simmer whilst you cook the pancakes. (Notice Frugal Queen modelling her brand new second hand top from the British Heart Foundation shop – £2.50! to charity and a lovely new top for me)
Don’t worry what the pancakes look like and try to make them as thin as possible.
After making a pile of pancakes, depending on the size of your family; it is time to make the cheese sauce. You will need 4oz flour and 4 oz of grated mature cheddar (or any tasty cheese if you have any lurking in the fridge) and about a pint of milk (The reason I’m making this is because we filled the freezer up with 7pm Morrisons’ milk which was going for 9p for two pints) I always just mix up the cheese sauce ingredients and blast in the microwaves and keep taking it out and stirring it until it is thick enough and without lumps.
Then start to assemble your veggie savoury pancakes. Put a good dollop of the mixture inside each pancake and roll up and place into a buttered dish.
We’re having three each tonight and we won’t have anything with them as they’re full of healthy veg, the protein comes from the eggs and milk and it’s a really balanced healthy supper. Pour the cheese sauce over the pancakes and bake in a hot oven for around 30 minutes. Enjoy your frugal food.

  1. Hi getting stuff done – we have a £40 a week budget and that includes everything, this week I saved some and bought myself a top at the BHF shop and I use that £40 a week for clothing, all food, the pets, cleaning stuff – everything I stretch everything and make a lot out of a little. I spent £28 in Aldi this week and have plenty for well over a week
