Breakfast for dinner!

I was able to talk Marc into having breakfast for dinner last night. It was a hit!

Early Riser Oven Omelet
(I have no idea where I got this recipe)

10 egg whites
5 eggs
1 c. milk
¼ t. salt
¼ t. pepper
1 ½ c. cubed ham
1 c. chopped fresh broccoli (or torn fresh spinach)
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
3 T. finely chopped onion

In a bowl, beat the egg whites, eggs, milk, seasoned salt and pepper. Pour into a 10-inch ovenproof skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle with the ham, broccoli, cheese, tomato and onion. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until eggs are almost set. Broil 4-6 inches from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until the eggs are set and top is lightly browned.
Serves 6.

Finnish Pancakes
(thanks to my brother-in-law Doug, who served his mission in Finland)

Put a half a stick of butter in a roasting pan in the oven set at 425.
In a blender add: 5 eggs, milk until 3 cups, a wee bit of sugar and salt and 1½ cups flour. Blend and pour into the pan.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until brown.

Serve with syrup, jam, powdered sugar, etc.

I grew up with a very sinilar recipe (I would always request it for birthdays or the morning after friends slept over) except we called it Popeye Pancakes (like his Popeye's muscles). Now my kids just call the puffy pancakes!

My aunt made this recipe for us and called it "Swedish Pancakes." My husband's family grew up calling it "German Pancakes." Whatever country it's really from, it's a favorite at our house, too!
