Spinach & Mushroom Filled Pancakes / Krokiety


for the filling

  • 4 medium onions (chopped)
  • 1 kg frozen spinach
  • 1 kg white mushrooms (chopped)
  • oil for frying
  • 1 tbs of Vegeta (vegetable Vegeta (vegetable seasoning)
  • 1 tbs garlic powder
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 300g Red Leicester or other cheese (grated)

for pancakes

  • 3 cups self raising flour or 3 cups plain flour + 1 tbs baking powder
  • 4 cups milk or a little bit more if pancake mixture is too thick
  • 4 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • butter for refrying


  1. Boil spinach in salty water, drain and leave aside.
  2. Caramelise onions in large frying pan, add mushrooms and seasonings. When mushrooms are ready add spinach and remove from fire.
  3. Mix all ingredients for pancakes, pour 125 ml / ½ cup pancake mixture on hot non-stick frying pan and swirl the  pan until pancake mixture cover the whole bottom evenly, fry them without any oil or butter.
  4. Place filling inside pancake, add some cheese and wrap. Continue the same with all pancakes.
  5. Refry on butter before serving.
  6. Serve with soup or alone.

Serves 5-6 people (about 15 medium pancakes).


Optionally you can brush frying pan with a little bit of oil to prevent sticking or replace ½ cup of milk with oil, I used grapeseed oil (it will prevent pancakes from sticking  when your frying pan is not so new).

“Krokiety” means in Polish: filled pancakes / crepes and they are usually folded the way shown on the picture.
