An Asparagus & Feta Pancake…

image

My husband eats eggs but doesn’t do omelettes. Though I love them, frittatas are out of the question. So to reach a compromise and please both of us I decided to make a the thick and deep tasty pancake. Full of Spring asparagus, all tender and yummy. The feta as always adding a certain saltiness and zing to the overall dish.

I just put it together as I went along and I know that this will be made again and again in our home. Perfect for brunch or a light lunch…Hope you all enjoy it my friends..until next time, much love D x
