Ham and Cheese Puff Pancake


So this "pancake" here changed my life. As in Jordan and I will probably never want plain old German Pancakes ever again. (Ok, maybe I will.) Anyway, we could not believe how delicious this was.
I don't know what it is, but the ham and cheese paired PERFECTLY with the pancake. Like almost too good to be true. What I'm really trying to say is this pancake will change YOUR life.
And the best part is, it's probably one of the easiest things I have ever made. The end.


Ham and Cheese Puff Pancake
Serves: 4-6
Slightly Adapted from Make and Takes
1/4 cup butter, for pan
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
4 large eggs
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup diced ham
1-2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp. dried herbs (I sprinkled some of Trader Joes Garlic Salt grinder on and was not disappointed.)

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, flour, eggs, and salt until smooth.
2. Set aside for 20-30 minutes while oven is preheating.
3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place butter in a 9x13-inch glass baking dish. Heat in oven for 5 minutes or until butter is completely melted and foaming. Remove pan from oven and tilt to cover the bottom entirely with the butter. Remove from oven and pour batter into the pan.
4. Quickly top with diced ham, shredded cheese and herbs.
5. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until pancake is puffed up and the cheese is golden brown and bubbly. Cool slightly before serving.

    1. It will definitely affect the flavor because it calls for quite a bit of butter, but you can always try it! Maybe do a test run first. ;)
