He really liked them though, which is what counts since they were made for him.

I just don't get it, I liked the crepes. I liked the filling. But put together and browned in butter/vege oil just does something that changes the combo into something I'm not fond of.

Recipe made 8, I completed 2 each, so 4 went into freezer for later use. Think I'll have something else when he wants them again and let him have his blintzes.
The way I make them the blintzes and filling are made separately, then assembled and served. No browning stage. Maybe that's your area to work on.

I'm hooked on my favorite breakfast. I toast an everything bagel, and serve it as a sandwich with bacon, fried egg, mayonnaise, sliced tomatoes and a healthy amount of lettuce.

It doesn't sound healthy to me but I know for sure it won't kill me tomorrow!

Remnants of a tom yam soup I made yesterday that I couldn't finish (with red thai curry paste, shallots, egg noodles, pak choi, chicken stock and shredded chicken). I had overeaten some sweet bread rolls I made earlier.

Normal "bigger than usual" breakfast because it's Sunday.

We had fried country ham slices, soft scrambled eggs, bagels, orange juice and coffee. Probably won't need any lunch because we ate later and heavier than we normally do. Makes for a nice, lazy day.

Same bacon, egg, tomato, lettuce and mayo on an everything bagel. I was right, it didn't kill me today. Yet...

By the way, regarding the blintzes, I didn't mention all my ingredients are hot before assembly. Just in case I was misunderstood.

A nice variation is to chop up strawberries, heat and mix with some sugar, use that for your blintze stuffing.

How do you make the hazelnut coffee? Is it a hazelnut syrup?

Creative, they are just flavored individual coffee pods for my Keurig. I bought a big box of assorted coffees when I bought my Keurig. The hazelnut is mild flavored, but it's one of my faves since I love hazelnuts.

There's a hazelnut flavored creamer you can buy here (not sure if it's available there, I would think so...), there's also several other flavors like mocha, vanilla, etc. I haven't bought those in many years, though.
