Breakfast of Champions

One thing I love.. and that's breakfast. Breakfast for dinner, Sunday brunch.. it's all very, very good.

Whenever a 3-day weekend arises, Ryan and I pack up the car and head up to his uncle's place in the Endless Mountains in Northern PA. Aside from the breath-taking beauty of the house sitting on a private lake surrounded by acres and acres of nature, we most look forward to the food! Before we leave, we excitedly plan a menu. We always like to cook at least one nice dinner for Uncle Tom to thank him for inviting us stay at his "summer camp for adults". Plus, it is nice just to experiment with new recipes and cook for fun!

Uncle Tom's girlfriend, Janet (who Ryan refers to as half nurse, half saint) descends from a lovely Swedish family. One morning, Janet made us all Swedish Pancakes. They were so good I made her give me the recipe. You must try these wonderful, crêpe-like pancakes!

I invite you all to post your favorite breakfast recipe & story!

Swedish Pancakes

• 2 eggs
• 2 c milk
• 1 c flour
• ½ tsp salt
• Butter for frying pan

Mix liquid together in a large bowl. Slowly whisk in dry ingredients.

Melt butter in frying pan over medium/medium-high heat. When pan is well heated and butter is melted, add one ladle of the batter into frying pan. Flip when bottom is golden-brown (1-2 minutes) and cook second side until golden-brown as well.

Serve with your favorite preserve or fruit & whipped cream. For the less adventurous folk, try with syrup but don't waste your efforts with anything but pure maple syrup!

*Note- flipping these pancakes is an artwork. 100% of the time, I have messed up the first pancake but get better as I go along. Have patience!

Next up... home made potato chips!
