These blintzes are called hurry-up because they can be made very fast. I find them a big help when Jake brings his partner Mendel home to the house. I have to have something easy and fast because when Jake and Mendel thereís always an argument. I know when I see them come in the door that it wonít be long before Mendel will be going out the same way. I suppose thatís how it is when people are partners. I donít want Mendel to go away on an empty stomach, so I make these hurry-up blintzes.
Hurry-Up Cheese Blintzes
1/2 pound cream cheese
2 teaspoons salt
3 eggs, beaten
24 soda crackers (about 3 inches square)
1/2 cup milk
6 tablespoons butter
Beat the cheese until smooth. Add 1 teaspoon of the salt and 4 tablespoons of the beaten egg. Mix well together. Spread the mixture on 12 biscuits. Cover with the remaining salt and eggs together. Dip the sandwiches into it, soaking them well.
Melt half the butter in a skillet. Fry the sandwiches in it until lightly browned on both sides, adding more butter as necessary.
Serve hot with jelly or sugar.
