Best German Pancake (completerecipes)

6 eggs
1 c milk
1 c flour
dash of salt
1 t vanilla
4 T butter

Preheat oven to 425 F. As oven preheats, place the butter in 9 x 13” baking dish and put in oven for the butter to melt. Place the eggs, milk, flour, salt and vanilla in a blender; cover and process until smooth. Pour batter into the baking dish with the melted butter. Bake for 20 min or until golden brown and puffy. Remove from oven and sprinkle generously with syrup and powdered sugar or fresh lemon juice and powdered sugar.

Breakfast Rolls (butterwithasideofbread)

1 c warm water
1 T yeast
1 T sugar
1 T oil
1 t salt
2 1/2 – 3 c flour
2 T melted butter
2 c shredded Cheddar Jack cheese
12 – 15 cooked sliced of thin bacon, chopped
6 cooked breakfast sausages, chopped
4 large eggs, scrambled

Combine warm water, yeast and sugar in a mixing bowl and let sit for about 3 – 4 min until yeast is bubbling up. Add in oil, salt and flour. Start with 2 1/2 c  flour, then add more until the dough cleans the sides of the mixing bowl. Continue mixing for an additional 3 – 4 min, then cover with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place for 15 min. In cold weather, you can turn your oven on for about 3 – 4 min, then turn it off and let dough rest in the oven. Preheat oven to 400 F. Spray counter top with non-stick cooking spray and roll dough out into a large rectangle about 1/4″ thick. Brush dough with melted butter, then spread with scrambled eggs. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top (reserving about 1/2 c for later), then spread bacon and sausage. Starting with one of the long sides of the rectangle, roll dough up tightly, working from one end to the other end horizontally, then back again. Pinch the seams closed at the end. Use a sharp, thin knife to cut 1 1/2″ sections of dough from the large roll. This will result in about 15 rolls. Set rolls on a large greased baking sheet. Bake for 12 – 14 min. Remove from oven and top rolls with remaining 1/2 c cheese. Return to oven for an additional 1 – 2 min, until cheese is melted and rolls are just beginning to turn golden brown. Brush with melted butter again, if desired. Serve warm. Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container. Makes 13 – 15 rolls.

Homemade Pancake Mix (cookingclassy)

Dry Mix

7 3/4 c flour (scoop and level)
1 3/4 c dry non-fat milk powder
1/2 c sugar
1/3 c baking powder
1 1/2 Tbsp salt

In a large mixing bowl whisk together flour, dry milk, sugar, baking powder and salt for about 1 1/2 min to evenly distribute everything. Pour into an airtight container and store up to 8 months (or earlier if ingredients expire before then).

Ingredients to Prepare Pancakes

1 – 1 1/3 c water
3 T butter (can sub vegetable oil)
1 large egg

Preheat an electric griddle to 400 F. In a large mixing bowl whisk together water, oil and egg until well blended (if using butter, first melt butter in the large microwave safe mixing bowl then add water and egg and blend). Add in 2 c pancake mix and whisk until combined (batter should still be slightly lumpy, don’t over-mix). Pour batter 1/3 c at a time onto griddle (butter griddle first if necessary), if batter is thick spread outward slightly. Cook until bottom is golden brown then flip and cook opposite side until golden brown. Serve immediately with butter and maple syrup. Note: These are also delicious with fresh blueberries. Simply dot the tops of the pancakes with blueberries after you ladle them onto the griddle. Yield: Dry mix yields 5 batches of 8 – 9 pancakes.

Breakfast Eggrolls with Sausage Gravy (4sonsrus)

Gravy

1 lb ground pork sausage
4 T flour
4 c milk
salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet, brown sausage. Drain the cooked sausage. Remove a 1/2 c cooked sausage to a mixing bowl. Add flour to the skillet and brown a little in the sausage fat. Slowly add milk, stirring continuously while it thickens. Salt and pepper the gravy, to taste. Keep on low heat so that it stays warm while making the egg rolls.

Egg Rolls

3 c shredded hash browns, regular or southwestern seasoned
3 – 4 eggs
2 T water
1 c shredded sharp cheddar cheese
salt and pepper, to taste
egg roll wrappers
cooking spray, or canola oil

Mix  eggs and water and then scramble the eggs in a small skillet until just set. Don’t worry, they will finish cooking when baked. Add the scrambled eggs to the reserved sausage. Add potatoes and cheese to bowl with the cooked sausage and eggs. Stir in a 1/2 cup of the reserved sausage gravy. Season with salt and pepper and stir well one last time to blend everything together. Take an egg roll wrapper and put about 1/3 c potato sausage mix just below the center. Fold over one half to make a triangle. You should have about a 1/2″ of the bottom part of the wrapper still exposed. With you finger brush a little water along that edge to help seal the egg rolls. Then fold in 2 sides forming the egg roll shape. Then roll up the rest of the way into a sealed egg roll. Spray the outside of the egg rolls with cooking spray, or lightly brush them with canola oil. Bake at 425 F for 12 – 15 min or until golden brown and crispy on the outside. Serve with a bowl of sausage gravy for dipping. Note: These can also be cooked by frying them in canola oil.

Blueberry Turnovers (sprinklesomesugar)

Filling

2 1/2 cups (12 oz bag) frozen blueberries
1/4 c sugar
1 t lemon juice
1 T cornstarch
1 T water

Heat berries, sugar and lemon juice on the stove top in a medium-sized saucepan on low heat for abut 10 min or until the berries start releasing their juices, stirring frequently. Once there is a lot of juice, mix cornstarch and water together and stir into the blueberry mix. Bring to a gentle boil and simmer for 2 – 3 min, stirring constantly until thickened. Cool filling until warm to the touch before filling dough.

Turnovers

1 sheet puff pastry (I LOVE Wewalka brand)
1 egg
1 T water
2 T turbindo sugar or granulated sugar

Take your puff pastry sheet and cut it into 6 equal squares. Distribute filling evenly in the center of each square. Whisk egg and water together in a small bowl and brush on the edges of the dough before folding over into a triangle shape and pinching the edges closed with a fork. The filling might squish out a little bit, but that’s okay. Brush the tops of the triangles with more egg wash and sprinkle tops with sugar. Preheat oven according to puff pastry’s manufacturer’s instructions and bake for 15 – 20 min or until light golden brown. Allow them to cool slightly. Drizzle glaze over warm pastries. Turnovers will stay fresh for up to 3 days stored in an airtight container at room temp. To crisp them up again, place in a toaster oven for a few min and they are good as new! Yield: 6 turnovers. Note: You could sub almost any fruit (ie strawberries, blackberries etc). To Freeze: Freeze after baking, thaw overnight in the fridge the night before you would like to serve them. Before serving, pop them in the oven again to make them warm and crisp them up.

Glaze

1/2 c confectioner’s sugar
1/2 t vanilla
1 – 3 T cream or milk

Whisk confectioner’s sugar, vanilla and cream or milk together until smooth.

Khachapuri Georgian Cheese Bread (sweetcsdesigns)

Baked Western Omelet (theseasonedmom)

8 eggs (or use 4 eggs and 6 egg whites)
1 c milk
1/2 t seasoned salt
8 oz diced cooked ham
1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c finely chopped onion
1/2 c finely chopped green bell pepper

No Washing Up Ham, Egg and Cheese Pockets (recipetineats)

2 soft large wraps / tortillas, approx 9″ diameter
110 – 150 g / 3 1/2 – 5 oz ham slices
1/2 – 1/3 c grated cheddar, gruyere, swiss or your favourite melting cheese
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 F. Place 2 pieces of foil on a work surface and spray with oil. Place tortilla on foil. Place ham in the middle of the tortilla, making sure you arrange it so it is flat, not a mound (harder to keep egg in place). Even better, create a shallow crater shape using ham cuts and shavings. Place cheese in the middle of the ham, form into a ring. Working quickly (1 pocket at a time), crack an egg into the ring then fold the bottom and top edges in, then the left and right side to form a pkg. Wrap in foil. DO NOT TURN UPSIDE DOWN!!! Egg will leak. Place on baking tray. Bake for 25 min. Check to ensure yolk is cooked by poking the pocket, you will feel the dome shape of the yolk. The base and edges should be crispy and the top will be soft. Unwrap immediately, otherwise wrap will sweat and lose crispiness. Serve hot! Note: This is not suitable for freezing because cooked egg whites go a bit rubbery. If you want to make these to freeze, use a fork to whisk the egg before pouring it into the cheese ring. Cook for 20 min, then unwrap and allow to cool. Then wrap in cling wrap (or foil if you want to reheat in oven), place in airtight containers and freeze. To reheat, thaw then either reheat in 350 F in oven for 10 min or in the microwave (1 min on high should be enough.) Serves 2.

Egg, Ham and Cheese Crepe Pockets (natashaskitchen)

Crepes

1/2 c warm water
1 c milk, any kind
4 large eggs
4 T unsalted butter, melted & more to sauté.
1 c flour (can sub 1/2 c whole wheat flour and 1/2 c all-purpose)
1 t sugar
pinch of salt

Filling

1 – 2 T dijon mustard (opt)
1/3 lb good quality deli ham, cut into strips
10 large eggs scrambled with 4 T heavy cream or milk
8 oz medium cheddar cheese, shredded

In the bowl of a blender, combine all ingredients in the order listed. Blend until smooth about 1 min. Scrape down sides with a spatula. Over medium/low heat, melt 1 t butter in a good non-stick skillet Add batter and quickly swirl to cover the bottom (about 3 – 4 T for a medium pan or 5 – 6 T for a large pan). Fill in any gaps with more batter as needed. Saute until golden on each side (about 1 min per side) then place on a cutting board to cool. Once crepes are at room temp, they can be stacked. Melt 1/2 T butter in a large non-stick pan and saute your scrambled eggs. Cook until fluffy but still somewhat moist. Set aside to cool. Brush one side of a crepe lightly with dijon mustard, place a generous pinch of shredded cheese in the center then top with ham, eggs and more cheese. Fold the top over and tuck it under the egg slightly. Fold in the sides and roll to close. Repeat with remaining crepes. To serve right away, saute in butter 3 min per side over med/low heat until golden brown on both sides and warmed through. Serve plain or with diced tomatoes, avocado and hot sauce. Freezing and Thawing Instructions: To freeze, wrap each pocket in parchment paper then place in a freezer safe bag. Before serving, thaw in the fridge or microwave in a single layer on high 1 – 2 min for 2 – 4 pockets just until thawed, then saute in butter over med/low heat 3 min per side. Note: The first crepe always turns out ugly so don’t panic and consider this your taste test! Its ok to freeze without the parchment paper but you have to keep them in a single row, do not stack without parchment paper. Makes 10 – 12 Breakfast Crepe Pockets.

Baked German Pancake with Butter Syrup (melskitchencafe)

 

 

Pan

2 T butter

Preheat oven to 400 F. Put butter in a glass 9 x 13″ baking dish and pop the pan in the oven while it preheats (if it’s taking a while to mix up the batter, keep an eye on the dish so the butter doesn’t burn; take it out when the butter is melted).

Pancake

6 large eggs
1 c milk
1/2 t vanilla
1 c all purpose or white whole wheat flour
1/4 t salt

Combine eggs, milk and vanilla in a blender and process on low speed until smooth, 10 – 20 seconds. Add flour and salt, and blend until just combined; the batter should be smooth but take care not to over blend or the pancakes may turn out dense and cakey. Take the preheated, buttered pan out of the oven and swirl the butter to coat the bottom of the pan. Pour the batter into the pan and immediately return to the oven. Bake for 20 min until the pancake is puffy and lightly browned on the bottom and edges. Serve immediately with jam, butter syrup, maple syrup or whatever else your heart desires.

Syrup

1 c sugar
1/2 c buttermilk
1/2 c butter
1 t vanilla
1 t baking soda

In a larger than you think saucepan (it will foam and triple in volume at the end), combine sugar, buttermilk and butter and bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce the heat and simmer for 7 min. Off the heat, stir in vanilla and baking soda until well combined. Serve warm over pancakes. Serves 4 – 6.

Better Than Paris Crepes (laurenslatest)

4 large eggs
2 1/4 c milk
2 c flour
1 T sugar
1/4 c melted butter or canola oil
good pinch of salt

Place all ingredients in order as listed in a blender and blitz until smooth, about 1 min. Scrape the sides and blend again briefly until batter is lump free. Refrigerate at least 1 hour, but 2 is ideal. Place nonstick or cast iron skillet over medium to medium high heat (medium to medium high heat is an approximation because all stove tops are different. If your crepes are cooking in about 30 seconds total, you are at the right temp to preheat.) Melt a little butter or oil in the bottom of the pan and swirl to coat. With the hot skillet in one hand and the batter in the other, slowly and steadily pour crepe batter into the center of the pan, tilting the skillet around to spread the batter evenly across the bottom in a very thin layer. It takes some practice but after 3 or 4 times, you can get consistently even crepes. After 10 – 15 seconds, the crepe batter shouldn’t look shiny anymore, it should appear more matte and the bottom should be lightly browned. Flip it over and cook another 10 seconds or so. Remove from pan and repeat this process until no more batter remains. Pile crepes into a pie plate covered with some foil throughout the cooking process to keep them all warm. Serve immediately with whatever toppings you desire. Note: You only need to add more butter or oil to the hot pan every 3 crepes or so to ensure the crepes flipping perfectly, although adding it every time certainly isn’t a bad thing! Yield: 16 – 24 crepes, depending on your pan size.
