Breakfast Skillet Blinis

Breakfast Skillet blinis? What next?

My breakfast skillet blinis idea is for the lazy Sundays, the divine sleep-in long weekends or for any other day when making small petite blinis is just too much to handle. According to Wiki, blinis are small thin pancakes, traditionally made from buckwheat flour.  They are usually served with smoked salmon, sour cream, butter, caviar, and other garnishes.

IN our household we call them flap jacks and I make them whenever my son craves something sweet and I have nothing to offer from the “treats cupboard”. I have to say, my version is slightly bigger than blinis. Blinis are small one-bite sized.

I had two functions last week were I served freshly made blinis with  Cream Cheese and smoked trout and they literally flew off the plates. It made me think. With a long weekend ahead of us and Mothers Day upon us, how about Breakfast Skillet Blinis? They are so easy to make, dad and the kids can manage it, while mom lingers in bed for just a little longer. Sounds like a good plan doesn’t it? I suggest you print this recipe and leave it in a very strategic place in the kitchen so that the kids and dad will s”tumble over it by accident”!

You can serve your breakfast blinis with salmon, smoked trout, bacon, fresh berries or even Nutella. The idea is that you bring a few skillets with blinis to the table and everyone helps themselves. So have a variety of toppings in small bowls, you can even prep those the night before.
