A Weekday Menu Recipe

Bacon and Chive Pancakes      HT  MC  40mins

Serves 4    Hot  Pork  Main Course



8 rashers Bacon, chopped

175g/6oz  Plain Flour

Salt and Black Pepper

2 Eggs

390ml/13fl.oz. Milk 

1 tbsp freshly chopped Chives

Vegetable Oil for frying

Fresh Tomato Sauce to serve




1. Preheat the oven to 140C, 275F, Gas Mark 1. 


2. Heat a large frying pan until very hot, add the bacon and fry until the fat runs and the bacon is browned. Drain on kitchen paper and keep warm.


3. Place the flour, salt, milk and egg in a large bowl and whisk until smooth and lump free then stir in the cooked bacon and the chives and mix well.


4. Transfer the batter to a measuring jug.


5. Heat the oil in a frying pan until very hot, then pour most of it into a heatproof container, leaving just enough oil to coat the pan.


6. Pour in a little of the batter, tilting the pan to evenly cover the base with a thin layer. Fry over a moderate heat, shaking the pan gently so it doesn't stick, until the underside is golden. This will only take 1-2 minutes.


7. Using a palette knife, turn the pancakes over and cook the other side until golden.


8. Roll or fold into quarters, transfer to an ovenproof plate, cover well with foil and place in the oven to keep warm whilst you repeat with the remaining batter. Serve hot with a fresh tomato sauce.
