I really don't know what to call this one.
I had one of those Bisquick Shake & Pour pancake mixes in the cupboard. I wanted to try it out and actually almost forgot I had it. Tastes like a pancake from the box. I grew up in the read-to-eat generation of pancakes. Or we'd just go to IHOP or Denny's for some flapjacks. This was just a little experimentation and an excuse to use the pancake mix. Next time I'll make the pancakes from scratch with maybe some fresh fruit and a nice dollop of my maple butter. Yum!!!!
Anyway, it's just silver dollar sized pancake. Cooked them on a medium heat in a buttered pan. Put some leftover empanada filling and a tiny sprinkle of shredded mild cheddar cheese on top. Baked for 5 to 10 min in a 400˚F oven. I can't really say how many I made as I was snacking on them while I was still cooking them.
The pancakes get a bit toasted and the cheese is nice and melted. I guess this can be a version of the crostini or mini-tostada without the dressings. Any one else have better name ideas? Either way, these are cool appetizers for any party. If only I had some sour cream, this would be so much better. But it's a good start.
