Green Confetti Pancakes
Dinner Tonight

Fun

One person leaves the table for a minute. The others choose an emotion and act out that feeling until "It" is able to guess the emotion.

Conversation

Do you think competition is a good thing, or not? Does it depend on the situation?

Our friends at Recipe for Success shared this idea for a fun and family-friendly meal with us. They note that the “pancakes” — which are really more like flatbreads — can be used to make pizzas or served with dipping sauces. We suggest setting out a variety of cheeses, veggies and toppings and letting everyone in your family make their own flatbread creation!

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°F.
  2. Roll out the dough and divide it into 6 portions. Cover with plastic wrap.
  3. Finely dice the green leafy vegetables and divide the vegetables into 6 equal portions.
  4. Sprinkle a clean flat surface with flour. Place one piece of dough on the floured surface. Using a rolling pin, flatten one of the balls of dough into a circle about 7 inches across.
  5. Brush ¼ teaspoon sesame oil onto the round of dough. Sprinkle a pinch of salt onto the round of dough, then spread the oil and salt around with your fingers to completely coat the round.
  6. Sprinkle one portion of the vegetables onto the round. Lightly press the vegetables into the dough with your fingers.
  7. Fold the round in half and then fold in half again. Roll into a ball with your hands.
  8. Sprinkle the dough ball with a little flour. Flatten it with your hand and roll it out again into a circle about 5 inches in diameter.
  9. Repeat with the remaining 5 dough balls.
  10. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray. Add one of the dough circles to the pan and cook on one side for 4 minutes or until the bottom side is browned (don’t be scared to take a peek underneath with a pancake turner to lift the edge).
  11. Flip the pancake over with a spatula or pancake turner. Cook the other side for about 4 more minutes or until the bottom is browned.
  12. Remove your pancake to a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet into the preheated oven to keep it warm while you cook the remaining dough circles.
  13. Top with cheeses, vegetables, or other desired toppings and serve with your favorite dressing or dipping sauce!
