    How to use

    1. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk and eggs. Stir in the sour cream, spinach, chives, Parmesan, and salt. Add the flour and mix until well combined.
    2. In a large frying pan, heat 1/3 of the oil. Make 4 pancakes (about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake) and cook until golden brown and slightly puffed, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Working in batches, make a total of 12 pancakes, adding oil as necessary.
