Breakfast of Champions!

I actually made this dinner for my family, and it seemed to go over well. I got the recipe for the pancakes from my friends blog which I love to read. Then the rest I pieced together based on things I can eat and are healthy, but still taste good. We had German pancakes, a veggie omelet and a green smoothie. Who doesn't love breakfast for dinner?!

German Pancakes:
2 tablespoons butter
6 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup whole wheat flour 
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 400*F. Melt butter. Pour half of butter into 9"x13" baking pan. Using your washed hands, spread butter over bottom and sides of pan. This works better than cooking spray. In a separate bowl beat eggs well. Then add four and mix well with. If you don't do this before adding the other ingredients it will not mix well! Add the remaining ingredients including the second half of the butter and mix well. Pour into the greased baking pan and bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve immediately and enjoy with honey, fruit, or light syrup! (They pop up on the sides of the pan in the oven, as seen in the picture, and then they will go down.)

 Veggie Omelet:Chop up as many veggies as you want and the amount you would like. I used tomatoes, peppers and zucchini. Add those to a hot buttered pan on the stove and let them cook for a couple minutes. Then add your beaten eggs on top (I used 5). Let it sit until it starts to bubble, then flip it over. The second side always cooks faster. When it's done, put it on a plate and sprinkle with a little cheese. Serve it in slices!
Green Drink:
We have lots of frozen fruit, so I used frozen strawberries in this drink, along with a banana. It is best to use frozen spinach, but we only had fresh, so earlier that day I filled up a gallon bag of spinach and stuck it in the freezer for about 3 hours until it was slightly frozen. When it is time to eat, first blend the frozen spinach with about a 1/2 c. of water. Once that has gone down, add the frozen fruit, and blend again. Then add the banana and a little milk if you'd like, or a bit more water (depending on consistency you'd like). Then serve and enjoy!
