Eating alone...




So my husband works shift work. 2 weeks out of the month I'm eating dinner alone. And he doesn't eat leftovers so I can't make an actual meal and save some for him. So, I take this opportunity to make dinners that I normally wouldn't make with him around.


The other day I caught a craving for a cheap meal from my childhood... Jellyroll Pancakes! And since I can never fight my cravings, I decided to make it, along with some bacon. It's pretty simple and very filling.


JELLYROLL PANCAKES


1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup milk

1 egg (edit - Grandmom says it's 2 eggs for 1 cup of flour)

Jelly
(edit- Grandmom also says you need to add a splash of vanilla extract or orange juice - my mom must've forgot to tell me this part when I asked how to make them, but I think they're great without it, so don't sweat it if you forget or dont have it to use)


1. Heat a non-stick skillet (I used my square skillet with no sides for ease) over low-med heat.


2. Mix first 3 ingredients together.


3. When the pan is hot, ladle some batter onto the pan and spread into a thin pancake. These cook pretty quickly are not not to be browned. Flip after about 30-60 seconds (you'll notice steam begin to rise). Continue to cook other side.


4. Transfer to a plate.


5. Spread a small amount of jelly over the pancake and roll up. Serve :)


Makes about 6 pancakes

Serves 2-3


Don't be alarmed if your first one gets screwed up. Serve with plenty of breakfast meat!
