Savoury crepes with mushrooms and ham

by | Jun 25, 2021 | Noodles

In Hungary homemade crepe-like pancakes are usually served for lunch as a second course after a thick soup. The filling is almost always something sweet, homemade version is filled with fruit jam, cottage cheese, cocoa or chocolate hazelnut cream, in restaurants you will certainly find Gundel crêpes on the menu as well.

Crepe is generally associated with sweet flavour, but you can enjoy savoury fillings wrapped up in a thin pancake too. Hortobágyi palacsinta is the best known Hungarian savoury crepe, but the options for filling savoury crepes are nearly endless. The following recipe includes a combination of mushrooms, ham, onion, garlic and parsley – all enriched with heavy cream, cheese and sour cream.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
