Directions See How It's Made
- Cook the spinach, drain, cover and set aside.
- In a large mixting bowl, whip milk, eggs and salt together.
- Add flour and nutmeg and blend well.
- Cover and let this mixture stand 1/2 hour or more in refrigerator.
- Add cooled and drained spinach to the batter, mix well.
- Fry the cakes on a hot griddle or in an iron skillet, and it's better to fry one cake at a time in order to ensure even cooking.
- Check for doneness by lifting a corner of the pancake with a spatula, and if it's browned it's ready to flip and fry the other side.
- Place each pancake as it's cooked on a plate, cover, and keep warm.
- When ready to serve, fill the pancakes with one or more of the filling mixtures, roll and place on individual plates or in a serving dish.
- Drizzle melted butter over each pancake.
- Sprinkle the pancakes with chives or minced parsley or tomato bits.
- Note: the recipe makes 10 large pancakes or 20 small ones.
