(Makes 6 servings)
If you serve more you will need to adjust your pancake batter according to how many you are doing. Also count on one Granny Smith apple per 3 orders that you are cooking.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups buttermilk pancake mix (not Bisquick)
  • 1 and ½ cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Butter
  • 2 Granny Smith apples (peeled, cored and cut into ¼ inch slices)
  • Brown Sugar (I prefer light but dark can be used as well)
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Caramel Sauce
  • 8oz sour cream with 2 artificial packets. of sweetener added to it
  • Syrup

Mix first 4 ingredients and set aside.

Spray oval individual casserole dishes and place 1 Tablespoon of butter in each. Place in the oven at 425 degrees for 4 minutes

Remove and add one layer of apples. Place back in the oven for 5 minutes

Add ½ cup pancake batter and sprinkle liberal brown sugar. Place back in the oven for 20 minutes.

Remove and sprinkle with powdered sugar (light coating). Top with caramel sauce. Finish off with a dollop of sweetened sour cream.

Serve with Syrup on the table but most don’t need it for it is wonderful without it!

Salsa Scramble

  • 1 can Mexicorn Drained
  • 2 cans Black Beans Drained
  • 2 Bunches of Green Onions Chopped
  • 2 Cans Rotel Tomatoes
  • 2 Tomatoes Chopped
  • 1 bunch Fresh Cilantro Chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix all of the above ingredients and let it sit overnight.
The next day add as little or as much as you prefer to your raw scrambled eggs and cook till eggs are done. You could spoon it on the side if you don’t want to cook it in the eggs. I do this with larger crowds because some people like more than others.

  • 1 package (10oz) frozen spinach, thawed and well drained (or use fresh spinach cooked, well drained and chopped)
  • 4 oz. feta cheese, grated or crumble
  • 2 cups low-fat cottage cheese
  • 8 eggs with 1/4 cup of water
  • 2 Tbls. Flour
  • salt & pepper as you would for 8 eggs and the spinach

Place the mixture in a lightly oiled or nonstick-sprayed pie pan, and bake at 350 degrees for approx 55-60 minutes

This recipe is very high in protein, iron, calcium, vitamin A and betacarotene. It is also relatively low in fat since there is no pie crust. If you don’t like spinach, you can substitute broccoli (fresh or frozen).

David’s Apple Dumplings

  • 1 Red Delicious Apple-peeled, cored and cut into 4 quarters or thirds (can also use a pear, peach, blackberries or a ball of cranberries, anything that makes a good cobbler will make a good dumpling)
  • 1 Can Crescent Rolls
  • Cinnamon
  • Sauce: Warm the following three ingredients till dissolved
    1& 1/2 cup Orange Juice
    ¾ cup Sugar
    ½ stick butter
  • Wrap 1/4 of Apple with one piece of crescent roll and seal all edges. I usually have a big piece of fruit so when I cut it in half to serve I still have a nice piece of fruit in there. Otherwise they get nothing but a bunch of dough. Since I have a bigger piece of fruit, I roll out the triangle pieces of crescent roll with a rolling pin and a little bit of flour.
  • Place seam side down in Pyrex pan (9*13in.)
  • Pour sauce over them then sprinkle with cinnamon
  • Cook at 350 degrees for 20-25 min. till done.
  • Baste dumplings with sauce in the pan before moving to plate
  • I drizzle a small amount of sweetened vanilla yogurt on top as icing.
  • Makes 8 dumplings cut in half to make 16 servings.

  • salt to taste for 8 eggs

  • In a bowl, beat eggs, onion, Worcestershire, evaporated milk, *bacon and salt with a wire wisk. Stir in lettuce and cheese. Pour in a 9-inch pie plate and bake at 375 degrees for 50-55 minutes. Pie will form a dome when finished. Cool for 10 minutes, allowing it to fall back down before slicing. Yield 8 servings.
