Breakfast for Dinner-Pear Oven Pancake

I have decided to try and make breakfast for dinner at least once a week. I am hoping this will save time and money each week. Last night I tried a new recipe that came out of the Carnation recipe booklet that recently came in the mail. Darin and I liked it, Tyson had 3-4 helpings and Jori, well, in typical Jori fashion she decided she didn't like it before even trying it and ended up eating maybe 5 bites before I decided to put a stop to her attitude filled mealtime.

Pear Oven Pancake

2 Tbsp butter, melted
1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
1/4 Cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar (needed for top)
1/4 tsp salt
1 can Carnation Evaporated Milk
3 large eggs
1 ripe pear, cored and thinly sliced
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 450*
Pour melted butter into 9 inch deep-dish pie plate or cake pan. Swirl to coat bottom and sides
Combine flour, sugar, and salt in medium bowl. Whisk evaporated milk and eggs in another bowl until blended. Add flour mixture and whisk until smooth. Arrange pear slices on top of batter in a pinwheel design, pushing slightly down. Combine remaining 2 Tbsp sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on top.
Bake 15-20 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Serve warm.

Our pear pancake needed some extra baking time. It was probably in there at least 30 minutes if not a little more. The texture was kind of like a cooked pudding. This would NOT make good leftovers (in my opinion) so we forced down the last slice. If Jori had been a better eater, this would not have been a problem. I would make this again, but maybe on an every other month rotation.

What breakfast items do YOU make for dinner?
