Granda's Hootenanny

This is the breakfast I remember waking up to when we went to visit my grandma (we call her "Granda") in Utah growing up. It's neat to have a grandma who can bake cookies while explaining the state of higher education and then, going on to give a feminist critique of the Old Testament. I don't know why we call this dish a hootenanny, but it's just about the easiest breakfast ever. It tastes and sort of looks like a puffed pancake but with less work.

Blend 6 eggs and 1 cup milk

Add 1 c flour
1/2 t salt

Melt scant 1/2 c butter in 13X9 pyrex dish. Add egg, milk, flour, salt mixture (don't stir).

Cook 25 minutes at 425 degrees.

Since I married Brennan there has been an on going battle about what "these" should be called. He grew up calling them Hootenannies and I grew up calling them German Pancakes. If either of us use OUR term for it the battle begins. Now I just call them Oven Pancakes to avoid the war. This will probably continue for the rest of our mortal lives because I am too prideful to ever call them Hootenannies. Of course, you know Brennan he has some experience in pride himself. Now we make it a point to make sure the other knows when someone calls them by our own term, of course I'll be keeping your term to myself!

In any event, there is one thing we both can agree on...they are delicious, we enjoy them topped with homemade strawberry jam!

ooh, that would be tasty! (And, although I call them Hootenannies, I think "German pancakes" sounds more refined :) )
