Meat-Filled Blintzes

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by 5thCourse

Tweak this lunch idea a hundred different ways to find your own flavour. The thin pancake makes a perfect jacket for a tasty meat filling. I use ground pork or beef and add paprika for an Eastern European flavour. Season your meat with your favorite spice or herb.

OMG, those were D-E-L-E-C-I-O-U-S !!! E/o loved them, though I made mushroomsauce to go w/ it instead of the sour cream. This is so a keeper, since I made those ahead of time of time, let me say they freeze beautifully. Thank you very much for such a good and oh-so-easy recipe. Oh, and btw it took more like 30 min prep time, but I guess that`s personal.
