I’ve noticed that lots of people have themed posts for certain days of the week, so I thought I’d do a “Sunday Brunch” spotlight sort of thing. Since it’s a regular occurrence at our house and all.
Anyhoo, today I made Poblano peppers stuffed with scrambled eggs and covered with a nice cheese sauce and zucchini pancakes. Oh, and bacon. I’m a tad peeved with myself because I forgot to take pictures but I was too intent on actually eating it. This is good stuff, and neither dish is difficult to make.
Poblano Chiles Stuffed with Scrambled Eggs and Covered with Cheese Sauce
2 medium Poblano chiles, roasted
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon butter
3/4 cup heavy (whipping) cream
3/4 cup packed shredded Chihuahua cheese (Mozzarella can be substituted)
Bring cream to boil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat; whisk in cheese. Boil sauce until reduced to about 1/2 cup, whisking occasionally, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Roast and peel the peppers, leaving the stems intact. Cut a slit down the side of each and remove the veins and seeds.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat until it foams. Whisk the eggs and scramble in the butter until softly set. Spoon into the chiles, plate and cover with cheese sauce. Serve immediately.
2 – 3 medium zucchini
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Shred the zucchini; place it in a paper towel lined colander and press out as much moisture as you can.
Mix the zucchini with the rest of the ingredients – except the vegetable oil – in a large mixing bowl. Heat a large skillet over high heat until it nearly smokes; add enough vegetable oil to coat the bottom. Drop the zucchini mixture into the hot skillet by heaping spoonfuls, flattening them slightly with the back of the spoon; they should be about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Fry them until brown, about 3 minutes per side, using care when flipping them. Drain briefly on paper towels, then serve immediately.
Makes 6 – 7 blini.
