It’s another recipe from my dead mom’s recipe box. This one is for a “Ham n’ Spinach Puff Pancake.” It’s clipped from a Land O Lakes butter box. The recipe calls for frozen spinach, but otherwise doesn’t seem too bad. I remember when I was a very young child that getting fresh vegetables out of season was unusual. That changed sometime during elementary school. Here’s a post at The Whole Bag of Chips from a food blogger who says the dish reminds her of her mother. I guess both our moms bought Land O Lakes Butter. Maybe it would remind me of my mother, except my mother died when I was so young.
Doubt it. This recipe seems a bit more involved than my mother’s usual style of cooking.
Upon reading this entry, my family friend, Gini, says, “I don’t think she ever made the Ham n’ Spinach Puff Pancakes. I confess, she and I did use Bisquick mix and I think she even tried some of the pancakes that came in waxed boxes like milk came and still comes in.”
I have a lot of fond memories of Bisquick pancakes. I think the first thing I learned how to cook was Bisquick pancakes.
