Danish Pancakes

Ah, vacation.  For us, that means sleeping in, no where to be unless we want to go there.  It also means being able to prepare breakfast instead of just a quick bowl of cereal or muffin on the way out the door.    I've been collecting breakfast recipes for weeks.  I've never made anything but traditional pancakes, so I was excited to give these a try. 

The batter comes together quickly, but make sure you note the 1 hour refrigeration time.   I only have a 10" skillet, so I used the full 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake.   Don't over grease the pan, it just needs the lightest touch if your skillet is good.   Be confident when you flip, I hesitated on the first one and made a bit of a mess.    My pancakes got a touch more color than they should probably have, but my flat stove top has hot spots that I'm still trying to figure out.

What better place to enjoy a lovely breakfast than the patio?  Thank you so much to Lise T for sharing her recipe!

                             Danish Pancakes

  2              large  eggs
  2               cups  whole milk
     1/2           cup  butter -- melted
  1 1/4           cups  all-purpose flour
  2        tablespoons  plus 2-1/2 teaspoons sugar -- divided
  3 3/4           cups  vanilla ice cream
                        Fresh blueberries and sliced strawberries

In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk and butter. In a small bowl, mix flour and 2 tablespoons sugar; add to egg mixture and mix well. Refrigerate, covered, 1 hour.

Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat. Stir batter. Fill a 1/4-cup measure three-fourths with batter; pour into center of pan. Quickly lift, tilt and rotate pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn pancake and cook 15-20 seconds longer or until bottom is cooked. Remove to a wire rack. Sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon sugar.

Repeat with remaining batter and sugar, greasing pan as needed. When cool, stack pancakes with pieces of waxed paper or paper towels. Top each pancake with 3 tablespoons ice cream. Roll up; top with berries. Serve immediately.

Yield: 20 filled pancakes.

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!

Southern Fried Chicken Strips

  Sometimes I defrost something with a specific meal in mind, and then the weather completely makes me crave something else.   We had a nice sunny warm stretch of weather here in New Hampshire over the weekend.   It was easy to ignore my menu plan of a heavy, creamy chicken and pasta dish for some crispy, golden brown fried chicken. I chose this recipe , and made very minor changes- first, I used Penzey's Roasted Garlic instead of regular garlic powder.   Second, I held the salt out of the flour mixture, I prefer to salt fried foods as they come out of the oil instead.   I also omitted the parmesan cheese, it didn't need it. I don't fry often, so I'm always glad when the recipe turns out to be worth it.  Using tenderloins made for a quick fry, and the crunchy outside stayed put when you cut them with a fork.    There was just the right amount of seasoning for the guys, though I admit I'd have like to have swapped out the paprika for some cayenne pepper.   I l

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast Sandwich

I'm one of those people that preparedness makes all of the difference.  If I have easy snack and meal choices ready to go, then I can resist the call of the drive through.  I've been enjoying baked eggs for a while now, usually with sauteed peppers and onion, on top of a whole grain English muffin.  When Dunkin Donuts came out with their new Power Breakfast Sandwich I immediately thought, I can make that at home! I started with the same base baked eggs recipe that I've been using.  I do normally use whole eggs, but for this version to keep it true to the Dunkin Donuts one, I just used the whites.  I sauteed diced bell pepper and onion until they were soft, then let them cool.  I chopped up some baby spinach, discarding the stems.  I had lots of eggs on hand, so I separated them myself, but you could definitely use the store bought egg whites. I beat the egg whites, added a bit of salt and pepper, the veggies, and then poured them into a sprayed muffin top pan .  Bake
