Another new recipe

Oh my gosh.

I rarely cook out of Saveur because it's ... well, it's rather esoteric. It's full of ingredients that are impossible to find in small-town America, unfamiliar techniques, and strange flavor combinations that are not always so pleasing to my (I suppose less-refined) palate. Although I would love to be the discerning foodie who cooks esoteric recipes on a regular basis, it's not practical to my daily life.

However.

Mirtoga (browned-flour scrambled eggs) is easy, incredibly delicious, and probably very bad for my health.

Did I mention absolutely delicious? It tastes like a pastry, actually. I would eat it for dessert.

Or breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner. Or a snack.

Also it is the first time that I've cooked anything Turkish.

That reminds me of Dutch Baby. I should try it!

A stick of butter, two eggs and some flour?! I should not read such recipes. Because then I want some. And I'm trying to lose weight.

I'm pretty sure it'll be a once-a-year-recipe for me ...

Nevermind, it's not like Dutch Baby, it's like crushed biscuits with butter and honey!

Thanks for reminding me of Dutch Baby, though! I haven't made it in ages.

Btw, the cressant roll/broccoli/chicken dish you posted about recently? Mom and I are going to make it for lunch tomorrow. :)

Naturally. :D I think my mom is incapable of making anything just like the recipe says! I'll see if I can remember what we changed when I post the weekend's recipes later today.

8 Tbsp of butter? That is 1/2 cup! Along with an equal volume of flour. No wonder it tastes like pastry.

P.S. I'm impressed at how many people are reading this on a Friday evening.

Needless to say, I did NOT use the amount of butter it called for. I'm physically incapable of putting that much butter in a two-serving recipe. *laugh*

(I cut the butter in half and the flour by about 1/4, and it was STILL delicious.)

I'm impressed as well! It's nice to see LJ more active lately.

It's due to my mom's influence. :) I don't think she's ever made a recipe without cutting back on the amount of butter!

And the Tulsa Greek festival is this weekend! I wish I was going ... I need the time at home to rest more, though. It's been a stressful few weeks.
