Champagne and Caviar: Breakfast fit for the jetlagged

All good things come to an end. After a good 3 weeks of traveling around, I am back in Boston. With jetlag forcing me awake at 5 am, inches and inches of snow falling down and eventually turning into slush and dirty puddles, I decided to to pseudo prolong the vacation with breakfast composed of bubbly and caviar (I got some from the Duty Free Shop in Moscow’s airport) blinis to spoil the roomate and the boyfriend.”Wicked fishy” was the boyfriend’s first reaction to the caviar blinis. Hope everyone’s first day at school went by well!

Ingredients: 2 eggs, 1 cup milk (use more than 2% milk), 2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda,1 cup hot water, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, butter for frying the blinis

Add eggs, milk and sugar to a bowl

Slightly whisk together. Add the water, flour, salt and baking soda.

Whisk together until smooth

Refrigerate the mixture for an hour. Heat a crepe pan and add a small piece of butter. Once the butter melts, pour 1/4 cup of batter into the pan and spread evenly.

Cook the blini until the bottom browns and then and cook the other side for same browning. Repeat until the batter finishes. Let the blinis cool for at least 10 minutes before stuffing with caviar (or any other more modest stuffing) and rolling.
