Easy Rouladen? YES! Make Flatladen!

Comment from Karen Scahill-Stiles (Facebook):"I want to say THANK YOU for the Flatladen, you have made life so much easier for me. My Oma may not have approved or she would have thought wow, why didn't I think of doing it like that.

My daughter lives three hours away and Rouladen is her favorite. She is preparing to take the Law Bar exam, called me crying from stress and wanted this for dinner she was driving home.

I was like okay, mind you i have a very active five year old so it doesn't allow me a lot of time in the kitchen.

I made the Flatladen, and the entire family was thrilled and my mother couldn't believe it and how easy it is to make.

You brought a family favorite that would take forever to cook, a easy recipe that tastes just like Oma's <3 "
