Swedish Pancakes with Mushrooms

These mushroom filled pancakes pack a lot of flavor into a little bundle. Garlic, onions, mushrooms, and chives combine with cream for a decadent filling ready to be wrapped in its pancake blanket and on the table in no time.

Yield: 4 servings

Serving Size: 1 pancake


For the pancakes
3 eggs
2 cups milk
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
Pinch salt
Butter, to cook


Beat all ingredients except butter together thoroughly. Unlike standard pancakes, you want a smooth, lumpless batter.
Heat a flat-bottomed skillet or crepe pan over medium. Add a bit of butter, let melt, and pour approximately ⅓ cup of batter into pan, swirling pan to create an even coating. When edges are dry, carefully slide spatula around edges, then flip and cook for approximately 1 minute more. Remove to  a warmed plate and repeat until batter is gone, adding more butter every few pancakes.

For the filling
2 tablespoons butter
½ cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, chopped
8 ounces baby bella or button mushrooms
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 cup cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, plus extra uncut chives for tying (if desired)
1 pound fresh spinach
Olive oil


Gently wash mushrooms and pat dry. Slice in half lengthwise, then cut into thin vertical slices.
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook for about a minute more.

Add mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add lemon zest, cream, and chives, and cook at medium for 5 minutes, then reduce heat and let simmer.

Heat a skillet over medium and add a swirl of olive oil. Once heated, add spinach and stir to coat. Cook until spinach is wilted and reduced by half.

To assemble
Place 1 pancake on a plate. In the center, place a spoonful of spinach, then spoon over mushroom mixture. Fold edges over to create a square packet. Slide 1 chive underneath, then bring together and tie as if string. Alternately, place spinach and mushrooms in a strip down the pancake and fold sides together.
