Schmarn

Recipe from my father's mother, Mina Hauner

 

This is a German recipe from my father's family.  It is like a chopped up pancake.

I enjoyed this for breakfast a lot when I was little.  Now my family tradition is to make it every Sunday morning.

 

2 cups flour

Pinch of salt

eggs

Add enough milk to make like pancake batter.

 

Mix ingredients.  Melt 1 Tbsp. Butter in 10” skillet (cast iron works best) over med-high heat.  Pour mixture into skillet. Let bottom form a crust and then turn and chop into bit sized pieces.  Continue to cook until all pieces are a light to medium brown.   

 

Serve in bowls with berry sauce, or sugar sprinkled over the top.

 

Note:  We've had several spellings of this recipe including Shmorn, Schmorn, Smorn, and Schmarren.
