I also like to fill them with meat fillings (see my Knishes the Old Fashion Way recipe) for fillings. When they are filled with meat they can be baked as well as fried. Meat blintzes are good as an entree or accompaniment with a soup or salad to round off the meal.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
We love blintzes with their thin crepe outside and warm sweet filling. They make the most divine breakfast. Helaine uses a European style cheese that has a fine curd. It mixes well with the cinnamon sugar and holds up to frying. Once the blintzes are fried, they have a warm toasted buttery flavor with a lightly sweet filling. You can use the traditional sour cream and applesauce toppings or add fresh fruit and cream like we did. The assortment of toppings is endless.
Note: We mixed 2 tbsp of granulated sugar with 1/4 tsp of cinnamon for the filling. The Test Kitchen
