Breakfast recipe

I have a recipe for "Cottage Cheese Pancakes" that I have used for years. It's easy to make and very tasty. Here it is:
With an electric hand mixer combine 1 cup cottage cheese,
1/4 cup flour
3 eggs
2 tablespoons oil or margerine (I use canola oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
1 teaspoon orange extract (optional)
dash of cinnamon (optional)
Pour in a baking dish and bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes. I have an old stove and oven and it actually takes 400 degrees for about 35-40 minutes in mine. A fork needs to have to come out clean when inserted and the whole pancake mixture will at least double in size before ready.
I serve it topped either with apple sauce, syrup or frozen pureed fruit (with a little sugar and a tsp of sour cream). Enjoy!

Hum . . .

Do you have any good ones for funeral potatoes. Seems like a Mormon Swap site should start out with a few of the 'traditional' receipes.

Lisa - Not technically a mormon swap site, as my fellow contributor is not, but I have no idea what funeral potatoes are. Possibly an American dish I have not been introduced to?? I'd be interested to hear what they are though! By the way - congrats on you NYT article!

Julia - I'm not a massive fan of cottage cheese, but since you whisk and cook it, I'm willing to try. WIll let you know!!

It's hard to tell that it's cottage cheese once it's baked but I guess you could be adventerous and try it with ricotta.
Yes, I am not Mormon, I was raised catholic but am not practicing any religion although I respect everybody for whatever faith they have chosen for theirs.
I also am not familiar with funeral potatos and wouldn't mind you sharing some of your traditional recipes that you are talking about, Lisa!?
