photo taken in 2013

This is traditional meal in my family. We absolutely love it! It takes long time to prepare it, but trust me - it's worth your time! 

Ingredients for stuffing:

Approximately 400 g of grated cheese
Approximately 400 g of meat - maybe a cooked ham or chicken
1 spoon of sour cream
handful of chopped parsley
pepper powder
medium onion

Ingredients for traditional Polish pancakes:

1 pint of milk
1 glass of wather
half teaspoon of baking powder
1 egg
bread crumbs and egg

* Stuffing * 

Cut the meat in small pieces. Fried with chopped onion without oil (if you choose ham). Chicken is thin meat, so some fat should be added. Spice with pepper, salt and pepper powder. 

Remove from heat. 

When is warm add grated cheese, cream and parsley.

 Mix igredients. 

* Pancakes * 

Use a mixer to combine the ingredients. Dough should not be to dense. Before fry each pancake, lightly grease the pan. Fry on both sides. Pancake should be thin like paper - should
be nearly like tortilla. 
When pancakes are still little hot put some stuffing in the middle of pancake. 

Fold them and put to ovenproof dish. Spread grated parmesan cheese. Bake in a preheated 180 degree C oven for about 30 minutes or until cheese will be melted and roasted.

You can eat it with ketchup and salad.
