"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
This recipe reminds me of the years that, as a devoted Catholic, one of the rules of the Church was, as respect for the death of our Savior on a Friday, we were to fast from eating meat on Friday. When I first got married I was not very experienced as a cook. My menus were very limited. Every night I prepared very simple dinners consisted of meat (steak or hamburger), potato, vegetable & salad. Fridays was a problem. What could I prepare as a substitute for meat?? So instead of hamburger meat I decided to use eggs and ended up with Egg Pancakes! Through the years my children knew exactly what we were having on Fridays for dinner and I think they will probably scratch this recipe off of their list. But really, try them you will like them! I still do. Here it is.
