Method

  1. Dry-fry the lardons until crisp and golden. Tip onto a plate to cool. Mix the flour, cheese, herbs, lardons, salt and pepper in a bowl. Make a well in the centre and drop in the eggs. Beat with a wooden spoon, then gradually add the milk, drawing the flour into the centre as you go. You should end up with a fairly thick batter.
  2. Heat a little oil in a frying pan, drop in large spoonfuls of the batter, then cook until the hotcakes start to set around the edges. Flip them over, then cook until golden. Keep warm while you cook remaining hotcakes.
  3. Serve each person 2 hotcakes topped with a poached egg and a spoonful of crème fraîche, garnishing with extra thyme, if you like.

We had this for brunch with some friends and it went down really well. The recipe is easy and it is something different from the norm.

Very satisfying!
Had them with rosemary as I had no thyme. Will have them on top of some steamed spinach next time.
Easy and tasty!

Topped with fried eggs and omitted the creme fraiche, but they were delicious.

Delicious! Will make with streaky bacon next time just because I'm not so keen on lardons.

Really easy, we had these for brunch today and they were delicious! Perfect with the poached egg on top - don't be tempted to do them without.

Did with wedges and baked beans as suggested by Gill below and it was a complete hit! Will definitely make again - cheap and easy.

Gill says - very easy to make and very tasty..felt it needed a bit more black pepper. Will do it again for a lunch and will also try with wedges and beans for a supper dish.
