Pancakes, Cheese II (D, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 3 to 4

1 cup milk
3 eggs
1 tbsp. oil
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. powdered mustard
1 tsp. powdered onion
1/4 tsp. powdered garlic
1/2 tsp. seasoned, salt-free pepper
1 tsp. salt
4 oz. of your favorite cheese, chopped into cubes or grated

Whisk together milk, eggs, and oil until smooth.

Mix all dry ingredients together, then add to the wet ingredients and mix until most of the lumps are small. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.

While batter is resting, heat a heavy 10" skillet over medium-low heat (3-1/2 to 4 on a scale of 10). Lightly oil the pan, then wipe with a paper towel to leave just a sheen.

Add cheese to batter, mix just until combined, then pour half the batter (about 1 cup) into the hot skillet. After about 4 to 6 minutes, the top will look dry and have many holes in it. Slide a large spatula under it and flip it over. If you are uncomfortable doing that, loosen it, slide it out of the pan onto a plate, put the pan over the plate and then flip the two over so the skillet is on the bottom and the plate is on top, and your pancake can cook its other side, about another 3 to 4 minutes.

Repeat for the second pancake.

Slice each pancake into 6 pieces like a pizza, and serve.

Poster's Notes:
It was one of those weeks where I had to work late, and had two meetings that overlapped (one at school and one at synagogue). I didn't have any of my usual quick-meal materials, but after setting up the bread machine, I got an idea, and this was the result. DD didn't care for it (she'd been noshing all evening), but DH and I loved it.

You could also make regular sized pancakes. I was just lazy. With more time, I would sauté real onion and garlic, and maybe some peppers and add those along with the cheese instead of all the powdered seasonings.
