Chinese Scallion Pancakes

I've been making these for years and usually call them Chinese pizzas. I think they are referred to as pancakes in most restaurants though. lol What ever they are called, I love em and they are so easy to make!

Start with 2 cups of all purpose flour....

Add one cup of boiling water...
knead for about 10 minutes until smooth. Cover with a damp towel and let the dough rest for 35 minutes.. 

Divide the dough into 4 pieces..

I used some of my canned bacon for this....I'm using the heck out of this stuff. I need to slow down on eating bacon! lol

I just zapped these in the microwave on a paper plate, then crumbled them for the pancakes. 

I roll the dough out, slather with bacon drippings, sprinkle with salt, top with crumbled bacon and scallions.
The original recipe said to use anchovies if you like, but omit the salt if you do.

Roll the dough up and pinch the ends closed ...

Roll the stuffed dough into a "snail". Not sure what else to call it. lol

Roll or flatten the pancake out to about 5 or 6 inches in diameter.

Fry til light brown and crisp...

I cut them into 1/4's..... I like to dip them in a spicy sweet and sour, chile sauce, but they are good on their own!

One thing I don't like about the recipe.... it only makes 4 pancakes!  I could go through these in one day! lol
I do like to make extra, bag and freeze them. Then thaw first, and pop them into the toaster to crisp them up. They are nice to have on hand!

New baby calves are being born on a daily basis. The mommas are fat and happy and taking good care of the little ones. I have garden fever but know better than to start my veggie plants this early. lol

Hope everybody is doing well, thanks for stopping by!

That is a nice variation on fry bread, I'd never heard of it but I'm going to have to try it.
It's the middle of January! When is your last frost?

Thanks Rob! I bet lots of ingredients would be tasty as a filling in these. The main thing is the scallions.
I start planting on Tax Day. April 15th! Hope you're having a great weekend!
