Works For Me Wednesday--Easy Recipes

I'm back with the recipes that I promised. Both are favorites that I grew up and are super easy!

Tuna Chow Mein Noodle Salad

Very easy, tasty and perfect on a summer day! But as a warning, I must disclose that I've never actually measured the amounts for the ingredients, so please understand the approximations.
Two cans of tuna
grated carrots--probably 1/2 cup or so
diced dill pickle--approximately 1/4 cup
mayo--approximately 1 cup or so
Stir together and refrigerate. Immediately prior to serving (or they will get soggy) stir in about two cups of chow mein noodles. Serve on a leaf of lettuce. You could certainly embellish on the recipe--add chopped celery or water chestnuts, etc.

Oven Pancakes
I first had a version of these while staying with family friends as a child.
6 large eggs
1 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose)
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt

Heat oven to 400. Spray sheet pan or cookie sheet well with cooking spray or coat with melted butter.
Beat eggs slightly in a medium bowl with a wire whisk or hand beater. Beat in remaining ingredients until just mixed. Pour into sheet pan.
Bake approximately 25 minutes or until puffy and deep golden brown. Serve immediately drizzled with melted butter and sprinkled with powdered sugar. (Some recipes call for drizzling with lemon juice instead of butter.)

So there you have it. Two super yummy recipes that won't keep you in the kitchen all day! Enjoy! For more easy recipes, head on over to Rocks in My Dryer!

These both sound good. Chow Main Noodles sound like a nice addition.

Thanks for sharing.
