Dutch Babies/German Pancakes

This recipe is from a book of breakfast foods my Mom has. We have been using this recipe for many years so the name of the book is not listed on my copy of the recipe.
Dutch Babies can be made to fit the size family and pan you have. I find it is best baked in a black iron skillet but you can use any large skillet, paella pan, or container you can bake in. The container should not be more than 3 inches deep to make it cook properly.
This pancake is so spectacular when it first comes out of the oven, you will want everyone ready to eat before you bring it to the table.

Pan Size-- 2-3 quart (This is the recipe I use for Chilly and myself.)

1/4 cup butter
3 eggs
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup plain flour

To make this pancake, place the butter in the pan and set in a 425 degree oven. While the butter melts, mix the batter quickly. You can either use a blender, food processor or mix by hand with a whisk. Put the eggs either in the bowl or processing container and beat for at 1 minute. Gradually pour in the milk and slowly add the flour; continue beating or processing for 30 more seconds.
Remove the pan from the oven and pour in the batter. Place the pan back into the oven approximately 20-25 minutes, until your pancake is well browned and puffy.
After removing the pancake from the pan, you can sprinkle with powdered sugar or serve with syrup. I usually prepare fresh fruit and either bacon or sausage to go along with this pancake.

For larger pans and families, here are the ingredients.
3-4 quart pan 1/3 cup butter, 4 eggs, 1 cup milk, and 1 cup plain flour
4-4 1/2 quart pan 1/2 cup butter, 5 eggs, 1 1/4 cups milk, and 1 1/4 cups plain flour
4 1/2-5 quart pan 1/2 cup butter, 6 eggs, 1 1/2 cups milk, and 1 1/2 cups plain flour

Olive Gardens Grilled Steak Crostada

On Monday night, Chilly and I went to dinner at Olive Garden.  We had seen advertisements on television of some items they are currently serving for a limited time.  One of them was the Grilled Steak Crostada.  We both tried it and loved it.  Both of us hope it will remain on the menu instead of being for a short time.

This meal had four grilled steak medallions which was cooked to our request.  The campanelle pasta had pancetta bacon and a four cheese sauce on it.  They served two cheese crostadas (similar to crackers) which were crispy and very tasty along with the pasta and steak.  The whole meal was delicious.  Of course, we both enjoyed the salad and bread sticks prior to our meal being served too.

If you would like to try something different, try this.  If beef is not your thing, they do this meal with grilled chicken as well..  I'm sure it has to be just as delicious.
