This is also called "Danish Pancake" and I bet that there are lots of other names for it, too. I've made it for over 30 years - I got it from a friend. This is my son's favorite breakfast!

4 eggs

3/4 teaspoon salt

2 1/2 cups milk

blend together, then add:

1 cup flour

and stir (there will be some lumps - if you use a blender, don't blend too well. The texture will be wrong.)

Put a 9x13 pan in a 425 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Take the pan out and put 4 tablespoons butter in the pan, letting the butter melt. Then add the batter.

Bake at 425 for about 25 minutes - until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

The pancake will rise, then fall as it cools. That's normal. Cut into squares and top with syrup and/or fruit. (Our favorite is bananas and maple syrup.)

This was originally a recipe from the Betty Crocker Cookbook that my family has made for at least 40 years and has changed a bit over time. I've added the wine and ketchup but you can omit that if you wish. (But try it - you'll like it!) :)

1/2 cup minced onion

1/4 cup butter

1 lb ground beef

1 clove garlic (I use 2)

2 tablespoons flour

2 teaspoons salt (I use 1 tsp)

1/4 teaspoon accent (hence the less salt!)

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon paprika (I omit this)

1 lb (or can) sliced mushrooms

Saute onion in butter until golden, add garlic and saute a bit. Stir in beef, brown, and add the rest of the above ingredients. (If the mushrooms are raw, be sure to saute all of these ingredients for a few minutes. If canned, you can just go to the next step.)

Add:

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1/4 cup (or so) white wine (although red wine works in a pinch)

1 tablespoon ketchup (or you can use tomato paste)

Simmer (uncovered) for 10 minutes and add 1 cup sour cream. Heat through, but be sure not to simmer with the sour cream!

Serve over rice or noodles. It's good and it only takes about 20 minutes - the same time as it takes the rice. Easy, quick, and superb tasting!

I've not run across many people with the last name Pinna outside my family in Arizona and Pennsylvania. I know that we originated from Italy, but not much else. I've also seen a few Pinna people from South America. I'd love to hear where other people with the last name of Pinna come from.
