This easy cheese blintz casserole recipe is made from frozen blintzes that I buy in the store. Yes, I roll that way sometimes. But you won’t be sorry. Just beat together a few eggs, some sugar and sour cream and you have a winning brunch or brinner casserole!
It will take me longer to write this post than to make this easy cheese blintz casserole recipe.
This is a super recipe to have in your repertoire because it is fast, simple and satisfying.
A cheese blintz casserole, which some often call souffle, is another Jewish dish, that is served at a Jewish dairy meal.
We often break the fast on Yom Kippur with this cheese blintz casserole recipe along with lox and bagels.
It is traditional, but my famous frozen cheese souffle, that is not, is often on the table, too.
Traditional that it isn’t. It is superb and it you want something more savory, rather than sweet, than that is the way to go.
I really should take some new photos of it.
But we are on to this blintz souffle. If you wanted you could make your own crepes and filling.
It isn’t hard, but why bother?
I buy the Golden blintzes in the frozen section of my grocery and Costco is selling some pretty good blintzes now, too!
I’ve tried Trade Joes blintzes also, but still prefer Golden.
Topping the frozen blintzes with a sweet sour cream and egg topping that puffs up over the blintzes is why I believe some call this a souffle. Whatever!
A blintz souffle is perfect for brunch. It is perfect to break the fast and it comes together quickly.
It is comfort food and I love it even for brinner.
My mother never made it. In fact I’m not sure I even had blintzes when I was a kid.
I think I probably discovered them at a Haddassah luncheon way back when.
The good thing is that I discovered them!
They can be served with maple syrup but I like mine with home made jam.
One can buy fruit filled blintzes, but I prefer the cheese variety, because that way I can choose my own toppings.
So that is it. My mom requested this recipe and now she has it.
If you are looking for a great recipe to make for a special occasion this cheese blintz casserole might just be what you need!
Like I said this dish is perfect for Jewish holidays like Yom Kippur, and it’s a Jewish classic that’s sure to impress your guests.
It’s a simple dish that can be made with pre-made frozen blintzes, or you can make your own using a cheese blintz recipe.
Either way, this cheese blintz casserole is a must-try!
