1 cup of milk
1 cup of flour
2-3 strips of thick Bacon
Veggies that are good baked to taste. I prefer:
Sliced Leeks or spinach if you want more healthy options
Optional: Cheddar on top to make everything tasty
Preheat oven to 445 degrees F or so, and leave the pan in the oven as it is heating. This is important. Mix together the flour, eggs, and milk, until very runny and little bubbles form on the surface. This is normal and good. Take the bacon, snip it into small-ish chunks and cook it in the pan. When the bacon is cooked to your preferred level of doneness, remove the bacon but keep the extra fat. Fry sliced mushrooms and leeks (cut into thin slivers) in the fat. Add any seasoning you like on your bacon onto the veggies, as they will taste better that way. Cook mushrooms to taste (I like to cook them until they are tiny shriveled things, but some like them still identifiable) and the leeks till shriveled and darkening from bright green to brown-ish green. If using spinach, cook it down until wilted.
Once everything is pre-cooked, pull the pan out of the oven and pour about a quarter cup in the bottom of the pan, just enough to cover it. The batter will start to cook and that is normal. Pour ingredients on top of the batter, and then pour rest of batter on top of cooked ingredients. I recommend shaking the pan from side to side a little so that the batter will get into all the nooks and crannies left between bacon and veggies. If you want to add cheese, I recommend getting the shredded kind and put on a decently thick layer. use a fork to press the cheese down into the batter a little.
Now shove the pan in the oven and leave for 25 to 28 minutes. The batter will balloon and look like it's coming out of the pan, but it won't. Wait for it to rise and go down a bit, until it gets golden brown and forms a lovely crust. If you poke the center and it is not gooey under the crust, then it is done. Take it out, let it cool, and enjoy.
This dish lasts in the fridge for a solid week, and can be frozen and reheated. Enjoy.
