Take one pack of... plain pancakes

by Sarah Alcock

In case you haven't noticed, it's Pancake Day today. If you don't fancy spending the evening chiseling dried pancake batter off your kitchen surfaces, pop a pack of Sainsbury's plain pancakes in your basket tonight and concentrate your efforts on making some of these tasty toppings instead. We've tried them, and they're flipping delicious (sorry...)

(If you do have time to make your own, check out our recipe and tips)

Halloumi with sautéed mushrooms and béchamel sauce

Serves 2

In a frying pan, soften one finely diced onion with one large garlic clove in a knob of butter. Increase the heat and add 1 x 250g pack of Sainsbury's closed cup chestnut mushrooms, sliced. Season, cook for 3-5 minutes, then set aside.
Melt 10g of butter in a small pan, add 10g of plain flour and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and slowly whisk in 150ml of cold milk. Return the pan to the heat and bring the sauce to the boil, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes until thickened. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Heat a griddle pan over a medium heat. Slice 1 x 250g pack of Sainsbury's Cypriot halloumi and cook the slices on the griddle for two minutes each side.

Prepare two pancakes according to the pack instructions. Spread a layer of béchamel sauce over each pancake, then top with the mushrooms and halloumi; sprinkle with chopped parsley.
