When Himself is away..

Himself went on a trip, second one in two weeks.With only The Boy home my cooking becomes really really simple.

We had pizza yesterday and tonight I just didn’t know what to make. I’m not in the mood for anything and apparently The Boy all of a sudden wasn’t hungry. My 14 year old, not hungry? Call the newspapers!

So an old standby is being served today.

In the Netherlands this dish is eaten for dinner or lunch, the pancakes are thin and while most people add sweet toppings we like bacon or cheese on them. Bacon that is pre-cooked is good for this.

Pannekoeken (Dutch Pancakes)

1-2 eggs
1 cup milk
1tsp salt
1 cup flour
beat eggs, add milk and salt
mix in flour until you get a good mixture, it should be thinner than American pancake batter
in skillet put a dollop of butter and our a thin layer of batter.
cook both sides until golden
If you decide to add bacon you need to add 2 pieces of bacon on top of the batter and then you flip the pancake over.
Cheese can be added when the pancake has cooked on both sides.
