Vegetable Oven Pancake Recipe

I clipped this recipe when I was first married, but my husband was actually first to prepare it. The puffy pancake looked beautiful and tasted even better. It wasn't until I made this dish myself the I realized how simple it really is. We like to vary the vegetables, depending on what's in season. —Mirien Church Aurora, Colorado

"Great recipe for this vegetarian. I did change it slightly. Instead of cooking the vegetables in water (and losing most of the vitamins), I sauted them in a little bit of olive oil. They were still bright green in color."

"I wouldn't call it pancake but more a pizza pie. We used leftovers from our veggie tray from SuperBowl. So we had carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, onion, peppers, and mushrooms. It was excellent. My daughter didn't think it looked good but after a bite...delicious!"
