2 Beaten Eggs
280 ml milk
120 g grated cheese
seasoning
Oil for frying

3. Add enough milk to make a thick batter and beat well
4. Add the remaining milk and add 3/4 of the cheese
5. Mix Well
6. Heat the oil in a flat frying pan until very hot ( you can tell by the sheen of the oil rippling and whisps of smoke rising from the pan)
7. Pour in a thin layer of batter and swirl around the pan coating the surface evenly
8. Fry until golden brown on both sides
9. Turn out and roll up
10 sprinkle the tops with the remaining cheese continue until all the batter and cheese is used up.

If you prefer a ready made pancake mix can be used in this recipe

CHEESE AND POTATO DUMPLINGS

1kg King Edward Potatoes peeled and chopped into eighths
2 Beaten Eggs
