Blintz Souffle


Grandma Rose, my paternal grandmother, was the queen of cheese blintz making. During my childhood, our freezer was always stocked with her delicious blintzes. The crepes were thin, and the filling creamy. Only once during my childhood, did my mom and I attempt to recreate the recipe. While our blintzes were tasty, Rosy Posy's, as we affectionately called grandma, were definitely better.

Frozen blintzes are a fine substitute for homemade. While we normally ate our cheese blintzes with sour cream, grape jelly, and a bowl of cold beet borscht, (jarred variety with more sour cream) when we had company visiting for brunch, my mom would make blintz souffle.

Blintz Souffle

12 frozen cheese blintzes
4 eggs
1 1/4 c. sour cream
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. orange juice

Place the blintzes in a buttered 9 x 13 inch pan.
Blend the other ingredients well and pour over the blintzes.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Serve warm.

No big hair for me, just freakishly large shoulder pads,
gigantic eyeglass frames, black and red plastic earrings (ew!).

  4. I have never heard of blintz Lisa - so you will have to make me one when we finally have that meet up together sometime in the future!

    And you are being far far too hard on yourself - you and SH look like the perfect matching couple in love!! You would have been the epitome of cool when it was taken...... assuming it wasn't last week in which case your daughters need to take you in hand!!

    Love and hugs sweet one! Fiona x

  8. Mmm, sounds tasty!!

    Love the 80's pic. I love how you and your then-fiance were both wearing red♥ Reminds me of how my then-fiance and I coordinated what we wore. Thank goodness I was the one, not him, wearing the large earrings at the time....

  10. And you still look as cute as can be! I love this pic!

    I wore a dress I had with shoulder pads to a party and had my hair done "Dynasty" style, and I'm telling you, I had more complements from men than you can imagine. LOL! It was for a party, and they just loved the dress and the hair. The dress made my waist and seat look small which is always a plus! LOL! It was figure enhancing, but nothing can help the excess baggage I've packed on this year. ;-)

    XO,

    Sheila :-)
