This was easy and delicious. We had it for a British dinner (here in Singapore) during the royal wedding of Meghan and Harry. I put butter and maple syrup on it. Reminded me of crepes but far easier. We left none!!!

Note- This dish is very adaptable. We often serve it as a main dish with Homemade or store bought gravy-also very good. ~For katandalan- This recipe takes 3 eggs..Susan K. Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor

Haven't tried yet and I plan to but I have two recipes identical except one asks for 6 eggs and one asks for 3 eggs. I'm wondering if both work or if there is an error in one of the recipes and, if so, which? Help?

Fixed this for a light supper. It was very good. Definitely a keeper.

I have a recipe book that calls this a German Pancake and fruit is placed on top of the egg before putting it in the oven. I usually use apples and walnuts I've cooked in a small pan. If I want to spruce it up I'll sprinkle powdered on top after it's cooled just a little bit. Very tasty!

Its time to make this one again! Hubby and I really enjoyed this up scaled breakfast. I used a ground sausage verses the links. Just my preference. I did not serve it with any gravy or syrup and it was wonderful as is. Its such a quick, easy and super clean recipe to make. Next time I am going to try to use a Muffin Pan for a future family buffet. Many thanks to my Dear Friend for sharing her Grandmas Recipe. It is a Keeper *JanieTaste Of Home Volunteer Field Editor

Super easy to put together. This makes for a great breakfast, brunch, or even dinner. I thought these were great served with home fries and parfaits.
