Blini (Russian Pancakes)
Widely popular Russian dish, especially eaten during the Maslenitsa festival in Russia. All kinds of fillings are possible--sweet or savory.
Rub the pan with butter or lard after frying every 4 blini. Don't worry if the first few don't turn out right; you'll get the hang of it.
Suggested fillings: cooked ground meat, mashed potatoes with onion, berries, or chocolate sauce.
