Spears in a Blanket for #SundaySupper #MothersDay

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there.  What are your plans for today?  Is this day special, or just like any other regular Sunday?  At our house Ron and the girls have always turned into a special day for me.  Ron makes breakfast, and dinner while the girls are on extra good behavior.  It is very sweet and today the #SundaySupper team is celebrating Mother's Day with everyone around our virtual table.  Let me give a big shout-out to Liz over at That Skinny Chick can bake today's fantastic host; we bring you breakfast, appetizer, soups, sides, main dishes, plus many dessert options which all sure are to please.

Today I bring Spears in a Blanket oh, I can hear you ask "what is it?" Well, let me lift the secret…these are delicious asparagus spears, topped with Gruyer, rolled and baked in savory pancakes.  Oh, yes they are absolutely delicious; add a large bowl of salad and it's a main meal, serve it along side some grilled meat and its a delicious side, or serve it for brunch. It is easy and delicious.

Spears in a Blanket
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2-1/8 C Almond Milk {or other milk}
  • 2-1/4 C flour 
  • pinch salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 C finely minced parsley
  • canola oil for baking of pancakes
  • 1 lb. green asparagus, cleaned
  • 2-1/2 C shredded Gruyer
*** preheat oven to 350F *** 
  1. Combine eggs with milk, flour, baking powder, salt and mix well until a smooth dough forms.  Be sure to work out any lumps, now mix in the minced parsley.
  2. Heat canola oil in your favorite frying pan and pour about 1/4 C of the pancake dough into the pan. Spread the dough over the entire pan.  Fry for a couple minutes; after a couple of minutes using a spatula flip pancake once it lifts easy of the bottom of the pan.  Bake from the other side until it is cooked through and pancakes are golden.  Set aside.  
  3. Repeat step 2 until you have used up all of the pancake dough.  You will need to add more oil as needed.
  4. Blanch asparagus by cooking in for about 2 minutes in boiling water, and then placing it in ice cold water.
  5. Gently grease a large square baking dish.
  6. Put one baked pancake onto your work space, and place about 3-5 blanched asparagus spears {depending on their size} onto of them.  Sprinkle with cheese, and roll the asparagus/cheese filled pancakes up into a roll.  Place into the prepared baking dish.  Repeat until you have used up all of the pancakes and asparagus. Top the pancakes with the remaining cheese.
  7. Bake for about 20 minutes until the cheese has melted and Spears in Blanket are hot.
  8. Serve as a main dish with a large salad, or a side dish
