Sometimes, we crave for delicious, home-cooked, complete and a filling meal, like the simmering pot of chicken curry from our grandma's kitchen. But there are times, when we want simple and 'on the go' breakfast. As simple as bread, butter and sugar! Here is one such recipe. Bake the pancake and toss in few vegetables and there you go, healthy and a simple breakfast.
BAKED VEGETABLE PANCAKES
Recipe Courtesy : tasteofhome magazine.
For the Pancake
All purpose flour - 1 cup
Eggs - 1 beaten
Milk - 1/2 cup
Baking Powder - 1/4 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/4 tsp
Butter - 1tsp
Salt - 1/4tsp
Or, for a quicker breakfast, use a store bought Bisquick Pancake mix!
For the Topping
You can use any vegetables you prefer, but here is what I used.
Broccoli florets - 1/2 cup
Green Bell Pepper - 1/4 cup
Onions - 1 Sliced lengthwise
Tomato - 1 Chopped
Mushroom - 1/4 cup (Optional)
Frozen Corns - 1 tbsp
Jalapenos - 1 tsp Chopped (Optional)
Carrot and peas - 1/2 cup
Oil - 1 tsp
Ground Pepper or Chili Powder - 1 tsp
Cheese - Shredded 1/2 Cup (Mozzarella or Cheddar)
Place the un-melted butter in a pie-pan, and place it in the oven, pre-heated at 450°F, and heat until the butter is melted.Carefully, tilt the butter to coat the pan.
In a separate bowl, mix the ingredients for the pancake until smooth. Pour into the pie-pan and bake for 12-16 minutes or until brown.
While the pancake is baking, heat oil in a skillet, add the onion and fry for few minutes, add the vegetables and fry for few minutes in a high flame, till tender and crisp. Add salt and chili powder.
P.S.Cooking the vegetables can be skipped, if you prefer raw-vegetables.
Once the pancake is done, remove the pan carefully, sprinkle the cheese and top it with the cooked vegetables. Return the pie-pan to the oven and bake for another few 3-5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
P.S. Instead of vegetables, you can top it with berries, powdered sugar and whipped topping for a sweet treat!
