HERE ARE DELICIOUS LITTLE TREATS....similar to a pancakes but they are packed with vegetables and or meat.

1 cup wholewheat flour

Mix flour, salt, baking powder and pepper.
Drop in the beaten eggs.
And gradually add the milk, stirring well to blend in to a smooth, cream like texture.
Set aside for 1 hour.

Add any of the following 'fillings" to the batter mix before cooking:

3/4 pound cooked bacon, crumbled
3/4 pound grated Cheddar/other cheese
12ozs cooked fish
12ozs chopped salami or other deli meat.
8 ozs cooked sliced mushrooms
1 cup cooked chicken chopped
 1 1/2 cups any cooked vegetables chopped

Heat grape seed or peanut oil in a skillet. (these 2 oils don't breakdown at high temps.)

Blend the fillings into the batter and drop by table spoonfuls into 1/4 inch very hot oil.
Fry on both sides until golden brown.

Serve with any sauce or chutney; also great with lemon wedges and green salad.
