Meat-Filled Blintzes

"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."

  • Blintz: Beat eggs and milk together.

  • Add water and melted butter or oil.
  • Heat skillet or crepe pan medium/high heat. If needed, grease pan for each blintz.
  • Pour about 1/3 cup batter and tilt pan to cover bottom.
  • Blintz is done when bottom starts browning and top no longer looks wet. No need to flip.
  • Filling: Fry onion.
  • Add meat, cook well. If you like, add two tablespoons flour for consistency.
  • Add salt, pepper, or other seasonings.
  • Use 2-3 tablespoons filling for each blintz. Fold in 2 sides and roll up.

  1. 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.

Raised by missionary parents and now on a missions program with my husband, I've been all over Europe, though not to every country, yet! Its been fun figuring out what I can do with the native groceries...once I've figured out what they all are:) Fortunately they don't differ too much throughout Europe. <a href="¤t=121036.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> Hubby in Troyes, enchanting town! I am fascinated by each culture's food traditions. I always thought I was half-way brave when it came to trying out different dishes until I saw an old "Bizarre Foods - Phillippines". Wow. I haven't posted many recipes because I realised I don't measure out everything the same way each time and so don't have many recipes that are precise enough to post. I sure enjoy trying all yours! <a href="¤t=180153.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> My husband I've been able to find EVERYthing I need here on Zaar. Where I live now, I can hardly get anything, so I have to make everything from scratch. (I mean non-essentials like pancake syrup, guacamole, papier mache glue, bbq sauce, etc) <a href="¤t=170824.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> Gotta love the of our foster cats <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="">
