I am withdrawing my search, but thanks to all. It IS called schtertz. Sister will have to do without - brother said he knows exactly what is in it. His memory said Mom fried a certain kind of pancake (FIRM) added bacon, chopped ham, and a wilted leaf lettuce - mixed it up. Thats all I know, I am tired of my post - but thanks to all.
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
Add milk to make a nice batter & salt to your likes.
Mom would always use smoked sausage drippings in the frying pan to fry these. She would be stirring this as it cooked & there would be some large lumps & some small lumps. Mmmmm! oh this was so good when she had nicely browned these. Hope this helps you. I would sure like to know.
My husband thinks it is coarse corn meal cooked and they ate it with milk or coffee and if they were real good his Mom would fry it. My MIL was born in Gratz Austria. Don't know if this helps. But that is all he can remember.
If it wasn't for stress.......I wouldn't have any energy at all !!
I love schtertz. Had it all growing up. My grandmother is Austrian and made it all the time and the recipe has been passed down. Although we don't eat it with Salad, we eat it with sugar and canned stanley prune plums and juice drizzled over it. The recipe is super easy:
1 cup flower
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
Mix it all up and pour it in a 10 inch circular pan like a thick pancake. Medium high heat. Oh, but before you do that, pour in quite a bit of oil. Enough that it'll fry in it. My grandma adds a LOT of oil, I tone it down to maybe 4 tablespoons. Then pour in the mixed batter. Let it cook for a min or so, then I flip and cook for another min or so (my grandma just starts scrambling it without flipping). Then I cut it in strips using two knifes (like scissors) cutting it into (roughly) 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch cubes....it does tend to end up more scrambled.
Serve it hot, sprinkle sugar over the top, then drizzle plum juice and drop a couple plums on it too. Soooo good!!

Oh, found the real spelling per my mom. Stertz.
Thanks ncollette - my after all this time I was surprised to get an answer. I will forward your recipe on to my sister. All I remember is sorta bland tasting, but firm and yellowish! Of course, lately, I don't have too much of an accurate memory!! haha Thanks again.
