About

This dish is named after Wicklow County, the county just south of Dublin. Typically served for brunch, it is not quite a pancake and not quite an omelet, though it mostly resembles a pancake. It dates back to the turn of the 20th century and is believed to have been created as a way to use up day-old bread and the last remaining eggs on hand.
