This simple breakfast-for-dinner recipe gets you your protein, starch and fruit fiber without a scrap of meat. Late in summer, we can our own pears, and this dish is a great way to use them up. The blueberries perk up the gentle flavor of the pears. Sprinkle with powdered sugar for a bit of added sweetness.

Very Berry Pear-Packed German Pancake

1 large can of pears, sliced or halved (we use a quart jar of home canned in light syrup, but you can use a 29oz can of store-bought)
6 large eggs
1 c milk
1 c flour
½ tsp salt
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 c blueberries, fresh or thawed and drained

Preheat oven to 400F. Slice pears into ½” wedges, if not already sliced, and arrange in the bottom of a greased 9X13 baking pan. Place eggs, milk, flour, salt, melted butter and vanilla extract in a blender and process until smooth, scraping flour off sides as needed. Pour batter over arranged pears and sprinkle with blueberries. Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Serve immediately. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
