Method

 
OSTRICH MINCE FILLING: Heat oil in a large saucepan. Sauté onions and garlic until softened. Add mince and remaining ingredients. Cook over a medium heat, stirring until tender. MUSHROOM FILLING: Heat butter in a saucepan and add bacon. Fry for a few minutes, then add mushrooms and garlic. Fry for one minute. SPINACH FILLING: Wash the leaves and shake off excess water. Remove spines from the leaves and chop. Place leaves in a saucepan and sprinkle with a little salt. Cover and cook over a low heat until soft. (Do not add water, the water left on the leaves is sufficient.) When cooked, squeeze liquid from spinach leaves, stir in butter. TO ASSEMBLE: Place a pancake on a greased ovenproof serving plate and cover with a layer of mince. Top with another pancake and cover with a layer of spinach. Top with a third pancake and spread with a layer of the mushrooms. Repeat until all the fillings and pancakes are used. End with a pancake. (It is advisable to sprinkle a teaspoon of grated cheese between each pancake and filling to glue together the pancakes and fillings). CHEESE SAUCE: Melt butter in a saucepan and stir in the flour. Add the milk little by little while stirring. Cook, stirring over a medium heat, until thickened. Stir in the cheese until melted. Pour mixture on top of the pancake torte. Bake in preheated 180 ºC oven until heated through. Serve sliced with a salad.
