Blintz Souffle

I come from a family of brunch-lovers.  Whether it's a birthday, anniversary, engagement party, or other celebration, my mom would always throw a brunch.

And why not?  The party's on when everyone has energy to spare, the kids aren't too whiny yet, and you can serve buffet style. Plus, from a frugal perspective, brunch food is usually pretty inexpensive - no fancy cuts of meat to buy. And most importantly, who doesn't love brunch food?

The main problem with brunches is the food preparation - who wants to wake up before dawn to get everything ready?  That's why my mom always depended on brunch casseroles.  You can set them up the night before, or put one together quickly in the morning, then put them in the oven until it's time to serve.

Here's one of my mom's favorites: Blintz Souffle.  For those of you who haven't had blintzes, they are basically crepes filled with either cheese or fruit, then wrapped up like a burrito.  You can make your own, or use a frozen brand.  They can be found either in the breakfast section or the kosher section of the frozen food area in large supermarkets.

Blintz Souffle

1 package frozen blintzes (cheese or fruit)
3 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tbsp butter, melted
4 tsp orange juice
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp sugar

Grease an 8x8 baking pan.  Place frozen blintzes on bottom.  Put the rest of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whisk until creamy.  Pour over blintzes.  Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15 minutes.  Then, reduce heat to 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes, or until puffy and brown.

I have never seen blintzes in the store - I am going to be on the lookout - this would be a great addition to our Christmas Morning meal!

Wow- what a neat idea. My Grandma used to make a casserole out of cornflakes, eggs and ham that I used to eat back when I ate meat. Breakfast casseroles are so fun! Thank you for linking up at Vegetarian Foodie Fridays! Hope to see you next week too!

What a great idea, and of course it would be just right for those holiday mornings.

I love blintzes, and saving money. Even better when it's also a time-saver. These look like the perfect brunch food.

How funny that your mom makes these because I just had this for the first time when my mom made it too! It was really good and it looks super easy!

Thanks for linking up for Friday Favorites! Hope to see you again this week.

This is the first time I have ever heard of or seen a Blintz and here I am a Grandma. It sounds incredibly good. Where do you get these?

This is a creative use of frozen blintzes - although I would call it a puffy omelet rather than a souffle. I am sure that my family will love it.
