Ingredients for 4 - 6:

For batter:

1.5 cup flour
o.5 tsp salt
2.5 cup milk
2 fresh eggs
2 egg yolks
2 tbsp vegetable oil
3 tbsp oil for cooking

For filling:

250 g (8 oz) blue cheese
3 tbsp heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp brandy

3 tbsp grated Swiss cheese

Method:

Combine the flour, salt, and 0.5 cup of the milk in a bowl.
Continuing beating, add the vegetable oil (3 tbsp), then eggs, and egg yolks.

Beat until the batter consistency turns smooth and even.

Stir-in the milk to get the consistency of heavy cream.

Let tosit for about 2 hours in a room temperature.

Pre-heat a skillet with 1 tbsp oil for cooking, then pour out excess oil, and pour in 2 tbsp of batter in the skillet center.

Tilt the skillet to cover the surface.
Cook until the batter begins to leave the edge of skillet, and tiny bubbles increase on a blin surface.

Turn the blin, and slightly brown the other side.

Note: When skillet is hot it takes 20-30 sec.

Place the blin in a flat dish, and brush with the oil (optionally).

Continue while you run out of batter.

Whip together the blue cheese, whipping cream, and brandy until an even consistency.

Spread this filling over each blin, and roll blin.

Meanwhile, pre-heat an oven to 180 C (350 F).

Spread a baking dish with the oil, and place rolled blinis into the dish.

Sprinkle the blinis with the grated cheese, and bake for about 10 minutes in the oven, or until the blinis begin to turn into a golden color.

Serve immediately.
