The Hortobágyi palacsinta is a savoury Hungarian pancake, filled with meat (usually veal). The meat is prepared as a stew; minced meat is fried with onions and spices like the pörkölt or the paprikás dish, using, veal, veal with mushrooms, chicken or Hungarian sausage. The pancakes are filled with the minced meat, tucking in the ends, and are baked in the oven with a pepper and sour cream, then topped with fresh parsley.

The dish actually does not originate from the Hortobágy National Park region of the Great Hungarian Plain and has nothing to do with Hortobágy. It was originally invented for the 1958 Brussels World Fair. However some Hungarian recipe books already featured a similar recipe in the 1930s. The name of the food is simply a marketing trick.
