Ingredients
Ingredients
2 tsp sunflower oil
1 leek, finely chopped
1 egg, beaten
150ml semi-skimmed milk
100g wholemeal flour
50g reduced-fat mature Cheddar cheese, finely diced
50g smoked ham, chopped
pinch pepper
Method
  1. Add 1 tsp of the oil to a saucepan over a low to medium heat, then add the leek. Cook for 3–4 minutes, stirring regularly until the leek has softened, then remove from the heat.
  2. Beat the egg into the milk, then place the flour in a bowl and gradually stir in the milk mixture until smooth. Next, add the cheese, ham and leek, and mix well. Season with the pepper.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan. Add the remaining oil and wipe it around the pan with kitchen paper, then add 1 tbsp of the mixture.
  4. Cook for 2 minutes, then flip over with a spatula and cook for another minute or two on the other side. The pancakes should be about 8cm in diameter and only 3–4mm thick. You should be able to cook 2 or 3 in a large pan at the same time.
Chefs tips
  • The ingredients should be finely chopped to ensure even cooking.
  • For extra flavour, add fresh herbs, such as chives, basil or tarragon.
  • Smoked ham is lower in fat and saturated fat, but still has lots of flavour.
