4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 pound Montasio cheese, shredded
  • 1/8 cup sauerkraut
  • 1/8 cup chopped pickles
  • 1/8 cup roasted, shredded chicken


In each of 4 (7 to 10-inch) nonstick saute pans, heat 1/2 tablespoon butter over medium heat until it browns. Place 2 1/2 tablespoons of cheese in the center of each pan to form a crepe-like disk, about 4 to 5-inches across. Place the sauerkraut on one, the pickles on another and the chicken on a third. Sprinkle another tablespoon of grated cheese over each one and press with a spatula. After cooking 3 to 4 minutes, the bottom will be golden brown. Carefully flip with a spatula and cook 3 to 4 minutes on the other side. Transfer to plate covered with paper towels to drain the grease and serve.
