Nana Recipe Wednesday–Baked Cheese Blintzes!
I don’t know what was so funny in that photo below, but clearly Nana and Boppa are having a good old time. I remember Nana making regular blintzes every year for a while…on Easter I think….but then I think she said that they were more work than they were worth. Well, I disagree with that of course, but of course I haven’t ever made regular blintzes either.
I did find this recipe for baked cheese blintzes, which was very intriguing. You mix everything up, pop it in muffin tins and it tastes like a blintz. That’s awesome genius!
Yes, Bisquick. The miracle ingredient. Beat the eggs in a big bowl and then add in all the other stuff. Grease the muffin tins (I used the spray stuff) then fill them 2/3 full.
Bake them for 30-40 minutes, so that they are lightly golden. Let them cool slightly on a rack. They look like little cups, don’t they?
Nana recommends sour cream and jam. I say sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with your favorite jam. Or powdered sugar and a squeeze of lemon. Or a dollop of lemon curd. Really, the possibilities are endless.
And they only took about 10 minutes to make, if that. Possibly the easiest Sunday brunch ever!
