Buttermilk Pancakes Again!

I have a lot of leftover buttermilk pancakes, so I looked at it as an opportunity to be creative with the extras. 

The pancakes are a little on the thin side, and one idea I had was of treating them like a crepe, here's what I did.

Buttermilk pancakes stuffed with spicy ham and onion, topped with fresh green beans and hollandaise sauce. 

Come see how I made them.

Diced some leftover ham and browned in a skillet with a little oil and some diced onion.

Even though the pancakes are not overtly sweet I wanted to make sure no "pancake-ness" or hint of sweetness showed up in this dish. I felt in order to insure this I should really spice up the ham.

I added some ham stock to spicy-hot brown mustard and added it to the ham and onion in the skillet. 

As the mustard sauce was reducing I got out my immersion blender and made some hollandaise sauce

By the time the mustard sauce reduced to where I wanted it, the hollandaise sauce had chilled and gotten thicker. I was afraid to microwave it for fear it would separate, so I put a bowl of it in the skillet along with the ham mixture and gave it an occasional stir with a fork, it loosened right up and was still perfectly blended.

I ran some ham mixture down the middle of a pancake and folded the sides over and placed on a plate seam side down.

Topped with fresh green beans and a drizzle of hollandaise. This turned out really great and I'd make them again in a heart beat. 

 

And that's that
