What is in the fridge Quiche!?

Enter left- Tired Mom

(Throwing open the refridgerator)

Tired Mom: What can I make for dinner.

This is me most nights.  Today has been that kind of day and cleaning out the fridge was the last task to accomplish before the hubby got home from work.

Que easy meal, right?

Tossing a jar of sauerkraut out of the fridge, some suspicious looking salsa and a tiny block of molded over mozzarella I find some chopped multi-colored bell peppers, half of a small onion and a bag of mini pepperonis.  Digging further yet, I discover some chopped green onions, shredded (not molded) Mozzarella, a cup of shredded mild cheddar and eggs!  Bingo!  Do I have an easy crust?  Yes!  What are refrigerated crescent rolls for anyway?  Okay, here is the deal.  I chopped up the onion, fried it up with the peppers and tossed those cooked in with the pepperoni, cheeses, a bit of fresh chopped garlic and dumped the whole shabang in my pie pan that the crescent rolls were tucked into.  I cracked 5 eggs and added a couple tablespoons of half and half (it has to be used too!) and poured that over the yummies already in the pan.  And just sing the song that was sung to us when we were babies “toss it in the oven for baby and me!”  350 degrees and 30 minutes later I have this puppy!

Watch me GROW!!! Don’t you just LOVE breakfast?

I came home from a short morning run to all my boys in bed watching cartoons.  After getting no response as to what they wanted for breakfast I hit up the ol’ family cookbook.  What popped out at me, but German pancakes!  I can lay no claim to this wonderful recipe as I took it willingly from my awesome Mother-in-law shortly after I married into the family.  This wonderful feat of height and deliciousness has many names depending on your source, another big one being hootenannies.  So, lets get a look at ingredients!

Look at these guys!  They could own the world!  (Que southern accent) Now my Mama told me that “if you are gonna use something, use the real thing, cause honey, butter can be your best darned friend if you want it to be.”  (Que regular voice)  So, my Mama, or anybody has never said this, but in order for this recipe to be as splendiforous as I say it is you need to use an entire stick of REAL BUTTER!

Okay, first preheat your oven to 425 degrees.  Pull out your trusty 9X13 and plop that wonderful stick of butter inside.  Then put it in the preheating oven to melt.

As your butter turns into a melted mess, turn your attention to the other ingredients.  In a decent sized bowl mix together 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk, 1/2 tsp salt and 6 eggs.  Whisk until smooth.  It should turn into a goopy consistency from all the eggs.

Once your butter is melted and your oven is up to temperature pour the batter right down the center of the butter.

Scrape out the last of the batter and put it in the oven for 20 minutes!  Here is a sneak peek of the magic! This one still have 7 minutes to go and look at how big it is! See those corners?  Those will be the best part!

This picture shows the true height!  It starts to shrink and curl in a bit once you take it out!

Look at that beauty!  See the butter sitting calmly in the center?  I never did claim that this is a diet food.

Drizzle on that syrup!  Syrup is just my families preference.  You can use the same toppings you put on french toast, pancakes or an ice cream sundae if you really wanted to.

Recap and Recipe

German Pancakes

1 stick Butter (no skimping or substitutes)

1 cup flour

1 cup milk

1/2 tsp salt

6 eggs

Preheat oven to 425, melt the butter in 9×13 pan, combine last 4 ingredients in bowl, pour over melted butter and bake for 20 minutes.  This is a great way to start the day!

Yummy Asparagus! No longer an oxymoron!

At the ripe old age of 22 I tasted asparagus for the first time.  Yup, I know, what a sad, uncultured and deprived life I led before I was married.  This recipe was put together with my husband and it has delighted us every time we do come across a sale on the beloved, vitamin-filled vegetable.  As a quick mention, I am picky about the thickness of my stalky friend.  The thinner the better (think pencil thin).  The Asparagus that looks like a tree truck is avoided and left in the produce isle all by its lonely, and I don’t feel bad at all to say it.

 

These 5 ingredients added to Asparagus will make your mouth sing!  Kosher salt, pepper, grated Parm, shredded Parm and olive oil.  So the ingredients are ready.  Are you?  Your hands will be your main tool for this next part.

Cut off the lower 1/3 of the stalk. This is the tough fibrous end that is edible but is not enjoyable.

Lay out the asparagus and put on all the ingredients except the shredded Parmesan and distribute evenly.

See what I mean by your hands being your tool?  Messy, but worth the results!  Lay out the Asparagus in a single layer on your jelly roll pan and put into your preheated 400 degree oven. Bake for 12-15 minutes depending on the thickness of your Asparagus.

This is the almost finished product. The head should be darker, and the stalk should be limp.

Put them on a serving platter and spread the shredded Parmesan.  Try eating just one before it reaches the dinner table.  I dare you!  If you want to, you can also put on the parmesan and let it bake in the oven for a few more minutes, the taste doesn’t change but the cheese may hold better to the Asparagus.  Enjoy your veggies!

Que list of ingredients

1 lb of Asparagus

1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper

1-2 tsp kosher salt

2-3 tsp grated parmesan

1-2 Tbsp Olive Oil

2-3 Tbsp Shredded Parmesan

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
