Cheesy Mushroom Pancake Bake

Mushroom Pancake Bake

With Shrove Tuesday fast approaching most of us will be rushing out to buy lovely sweet fillings for our pancakes - my favourite being the simple lemon and sugar combo, with the kids preferring golden syrup or mars bar sauce on theirs. So when Aldi challenged me to develop a new tasty recipe for Pancake Day this year I immediately started thinking of indulgent sticky sweet sauces I could make such as salted caramel, dark chocolate and vanilla butter. But after a bit of thought, I decided I should be a little bit more daring and develop some scrummy savoury pancake recipes instead.

I remembered a lovely spinach, mushroom and feta filled pancake I enjoyed at a local food festival recently, so I set about recreating something similar. In fact what happened was the creation of two yummy savoury pancake recipes, one for the adults (and any kids who like mushrooms - mine call them slugs) and a more simple one that the kids really enjoyed with ham, cheese and asparagus.

The Mushroom and Cheese Pancake Bake is really filling and definitely hearty enough for a main meal, served with a side salad, steamed veggies or chips. You can also get ahead by making the mushroom filling the day before, as well as the pancakes if you really want to. So then when pancake day arrives, it's just a matter of  spreading on the filling, rolling them up, placing in a baking dish and pouring over the cheese sauce. These are oven baked for around 20 minutes or until golden on top.

Savoury Pancakes

Not being great lovers of mushrooms, the kids preferred the Asparagus and Ham Roll-ups. All you need to do for these is make your pancakes as usual (pancake batter recipe can be found below) then lay a slice of ham over each one, place a couple of blanched asparagus spears on top and roll up. Pour over some cheddar cheese sauce (recipe also below) and place under the grill for a few minutes to warm through! Super easy and very tasty.

What are your favourite pancake fillings? Have you ever made savoury pancakes?

Savoury Pancakes


| Serves: 4-5 | Prep Time: 1 Hour | Cook Time: 45 Minutes | Total Time: 1 Hour 45 Minutes |


  • For the Pancakes: makes 12
  • 100g Plain Flour
  • 2 Egg
  • 300ml Milk
  • Oil for frying
  • For the Mushroom Filling:
  • 25g Butter
  • 1 Garlic Clove, chopped
  • 500g Mushrooms, sliced
  • 25g Breadcrumbs
  • 25g Parmesan, grated
  • 1 TBSP Parsely, chopped
  • 3 TBSP Single Cream
  • Salt and Pepper
  • For the Cheese Sauce:
  • 25g Butter
  • 25g Plain Flour
  • 300ml Milk
  • 150g Extra Mature Cheddar


  • Step 1: Make the pancake batter in a bowl by whisking the batter ingredients together in a jug. Leave to rest for 30 minutes.
  • Step 2: To make the mushroom filling (which can be done the day before and stored in the fridge if you prefer), melt the butter in a frying pan and gently fry the garlic and mushrooms until cooked through. Add the breadcrumbs, parmesan, parsley, single cream and salt and pepper and stir until combined. Set aside.
  • Step 3: To make the cheese sauce, melt the butter in a pan, whisk in the flour then gradually add the milk, whisking until it starts to thicken. Take off the heat and add the cheese. Set aside.
  • Step 4: To make the pancakes, wipe some oiled kitchen paper onto a large frying pan and put on a medium heat. Pour in the batter and swirl the mixture around the pan. Cook for 1 minute before flipping. Once cooked set aside on a plate and separate each cooked pancake with a piece of baking paper.
  • Step 2: Preheat the oven to 200c (180cFan). To assemble the bake, place spoonfuls of the mushroom mixture in the middle of each pancake, roll up then place in an oven proof dish. Continue until all pancakes are filled, rolled and placed in the dish. Pour over the cheese sauce and bake for 20 minutes.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Family Favourite Minced Beef Cobbler

An easy, filling and relatively frugal meal that the whole family will enjoy, even the fussiest of children. I love savoury cobblers, there's something very comforting about them, especially when you top the scones with plenty of cheddar cheese like I do in this recipe. This minced beef cobbler features heavily on our meal plans during the winter months and I like to serve it with seasonal veggies, or failing that some peas from the freezer (to be fair it's usually peas from freezer!!). My lot would quite happily gobble a bowl of this on it's own though. It's most definitely a keeper in this house!

TIPS FOR MAKING THE MINCED BEEF COBBLERUp the veggies by adding peppers, mushrooms and courgettes to the mince.Make a veggie version by omitting the bacon and using Quorn mince instead.Double the recipe if you're feeding a crowd.Add a tablespoon of caramelised onion chutney to the mince to give it an extra rich flavour.Serve with seasonal veggies (or peas from the freez…
