Ebelskivers

One of our family’s favorite New Year’s traditions is to make a Danish filled pancake dish called Ebleskievers.

We love to fill them with jam or chocolate chips–for the sweet version…

…or fill them with bacon and scrambled eggs for the savory breakfast!!

Either way–

it’s kind of criminal to only make these lovelies once a year!

My mother bought the pan when I was a kid in the little Danish town of Solvang, California, but you’ll be happy to know that you can buy these pans almost anywhere–William Sonoma, Walmart, or even on Amazon. Now that’s not so scary, right?
