Now that the school year is starting, Evan and I both have work full time and class at night. I need dinner recipes that require common ingredients and little preptime but taste great. Does anyone have any? Please help!

I got this recipe from Evan who got it from his mom, so technically its from her. Evan LOVES these and I was a little skeptical when I first tried them, but we love them so much now that we sometimes have them for dinner too. I love them because they are SO EASY and taste great. You can serve them with syrup or they are good with jelly and powdered sugar on top too. Evan and I can finish a whole 9X13, so if you are making it for more than 2 or 3 people, you need to make 2 batches. Enjoy!!


1/2 stick butter
6 eggs
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 tsp salt
(Optional: syrup, jelly, strawberries, whipped cream, etc)

Put 1/2 stick of butter in a 9x13 pan. Put the pan in the oven to melt the butter while the oven is preheating to 450 degrees. While the butter is melting and the pan is getting hot. Mix together 6 eggs, 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk and 1 tsp salt. Whip together until well mixed. Open oven and pour mixture over the melted butter. Set timer for 22 minutes. Eat with syrup or strawberries and whipped cream or whatever you like on pancakes or french toast.
