Ingredients

  • 150g plain flour
  • 250ml whole milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 30g unsalted butter, melted
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 50g plain flour
  • 500ml whole milk
  • White pepper, to season
  • 100g Gruyere, grated, plus a little extra for the top
  • 100g low moisture mozzarella, grated
  • Parmesan, for grating on top
  • 200g spinach
  • 1 x 240g jar grilled artichokes in oil
  • 1 leek, trimmed and thinly sliced

Directions

1.

Place the flour in a bowl

Place the flour in a bowl, add a pinch of salt and whisk in the eggs and milk. Set aside at room temperature while you prepare the other elements.

2.

Make the cheese sauce

Make the cheese sauce by heating the milk in one saucepan and melting the butter in another. Once the butter is foaming, add the flour and whisk to incorporate. Cook this mixture, whisking all the time, for a couple of minutes.

3.

Begin adding the milk

Begin adding the milk, a ladleful at a time. Whisk to incorporate fully before adding the next. Once all the milk is incorporated, season with salt and white pepper. Add the Gruyere, reserving a little for the top of the pancakes, then add the mozzarella. Continue whisking until both cheeses are fully melted. Cover and set aside.

4.

Light the two central burners

Light the two central burners on the Jupiter Outback BBQ and set the heat to medium-low. Once hot, add a splash of oil and soften the leeks gently for around 10 minutes, stirring.

5.

Add the splash

Add the splash of white wine and let it bubble down, then add the spinach and close the lid of the BBQ. Allow the spinach to wilt down for a few minutes.

7.

Wipe out the skillet

Wipe out the skillet and prepare to make the pancakes. Light the 2 central gas burners on the Jupiter Outback BBQ and set the heat to medium-low. Place the skillet pan in the centre of the BBQ to heat up.

8.

Stir the melted butter

Stir the melted butter into the pancake batter and very lightly grease the skillet. Then, transfer a ladleful of batter into the skillet and quickly swirl it around - you can do this using heatproof gloves, or use the back of the ladle.

9.

The batter will cook quickly

The batter will cook quickly. After 30 seconds or so, use a spatula to gently lift the edge of the pancake and flip it over.

10.

Once all the pancakes are cooked

Once all the pancakes are cooked, divide the filling between them, rolling them up as you go. Arrange the pancakes inside the skillet and pour over the cheese sauce, topping with the remaining Gruyere and some Parmesan.

Cook for around 10 minutes, or until everything is piping hot and the sauce is bubbling and golden.
