Another one of my favorite Austrian recipes. Frittaten are just cut up Palatschinken you eat in soup. Palatschinken are thin [1-2mm] and quite neutral flavored versions of pancakes. They can be filled with quark, ice cream or jam to be eaten as a dessert. Often it’s used like tortillas and filled with meat or vegetables. And since the Austrians are a very practical people they use left over Palatschinken, cut them up and eat them in the soup the next day.
_ mix flour and salt
_ add egg and half the milk [by hand]
_ once all lumps are gone add rest of the milk
[if you are using wholemeal flour let it sit for a few minutes – might need more milk]
_ heat oil in a pan
_ fry thin pancakes [don’t worry – the first one never looks pretty]
_ let them cool
_ prepare some soup from soup seasoning [or some pre made stock]
_ cut pancakes into thin slices
You can also freeze and use them later.
_ place them in a soup bowl and cover with soup and fresh herbs
