What Happens when Philadelphia Sushi Roll Meets Russian Blini


Philadelphia Roll Meets a Russian Blini

I've been cooking up a lot of crepes or Russian blinis in my kitchen lately.  Thanks to a very hungry and appreciative artist and a set of new non-stick skillets, these blinis became a weekend breakfast tradition.  Most often, the blinis get a smear of sour cream and a dollop of jam and are quickly rolled up and even more quickly gobbled up. 

The blinis also make an appearance at nights.  A few weeks ago when I was having the girls for a Bachelor viewing party, I discovered a fantastic sweet filling combination: sour cream, sauteed apples, and walnuts inside the crepe and apricot jam on the outside.

But as far as sweets go, I have a limit, and so the other day I craved a savory Russian blini.  At home, I've often had blinis with chili, cheese, and sour cream.  I'm also a fan of a spoonful of taramasalata with diced tomatoes and dill.  This time around, my inspiration came from a Philadelphia Sushi Roll.
