Pancake Tuesday recipe III. and IV.

Another pancakey dinner! :) But be warned, it's really heavy and filling!
 Meaty-mushroomy pancake bake
2-3 tbsp oil or a generous knob of butter
1 packet (250g) mushrooms, chopped
salt, pepper
100-120g smoked meat, chopped
large bunch pasrsley, chopped
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1 cup grated Cheddar
1 egg yolk
3-4 tbsp soured cream
1 pinch nutmeg
10-12 pancakes
 Sautee the mushrooms in a large frying pan, adding salt and pepper.
 Add the smoked meat, eggs, parsley and stir.
 Spread the filling on a pancake and top with another pancake.
 Roll up the double pancake.
 Cut it in 3 pieces and stand them up in a greased ovenproof dish.
 Mix the yolks, nutmeg, soured cream and half cup of cheese and spread on top. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Cook in a pre-heated (200 C) oven for about 20-30 mins or until top is golden.
 I whisked the remaining egg yolk and mixed it with some salt and cheese, poured over and put back in the oven for another 15 mins. Just didn't want to waste the white ;)
And for the desert:
Triple layered cottage cheese pancake bake
I love pancakes filled with cottage cheese! As my Grandma used to make it - a tub of cottage cheese, 1 egg yolk, sugar (I added 3 tsp) some raisins and lemon zest. (These are best cooked in the oven afterwards, but if you eat them raw do so straight away and use only the freshest eggs!)
 As my friend's Mum used to make it - 1 tub cottage cheese, 3 tsp sugar, 3 tsp soured cream, raisins, lemon zest.

Or as I make them when I'm in a hurry (you know, kids screaming for more pancakes, you are tossing them with one hand and spreading the filling with the other while making more cottage cheese filling with the third...) - cottage cheese, sugar, lemon zest. 

I thought, it would be nice to eat them all together :) So. I made 9 pancakes. Filled three with first variety, 3 with second, 2 with third (ran out of cottage cheese :O ) and a final one with Nutella :D
Then mixed 1-2 egg yolks, 100 ml cream, 3 tbsp warmed honey and a generous tsp cinnamon.
 Then I put the pancakes in layers in a loaf tin. Poured some sauce over each layer and tossed a handful of walnuts on toop.
Put it in the oven at 200 C for 15 mins and slice & serve. It's even better when cooled!
