We used to go to the San Francisco Magic Pan for lunch when we were downtown shopping around Union Square. My favorite was the spinach souffle crepe which apparently used Stouffer’s thawed Spinach Souffle for the filling. I found a collection of Magic Pan recipes and thought I’d share them.
This isn’t my collection. I found it by googling Magic Pan recipes. If you go to Doreen’s Kitchen, it looks like she sells ebook versions of a few cookbooks, including the Magic Pan’s. There is a copyright symbol on the PDF of the list, so it looks like they are. However, even though I’m a librarian, I’m not a copyright expert. If you’re interested, I would contact Doreen’s Kitchen directly.
Thanks for sharing this. I have some nostalgia for the Magic Pan–I ate there often circa 1979/1980 in Southern California. That’s where I rediscovered my sweet tooth after I quit smoking cigarettes. I couldn’t resist their chocolate mousse, which I’d always have after dinner. I gained about 20 lbs in a year, mostly from that dish alone. Good times.
Doreen recipes aren’t exactly right, I worked there,and learned so much about cooking as a young college student. For example their blue cheese dressing was unequaled in my mind. Almost everything was made from scratch. The blue cheese dressing had three ingredients, danish bleu cheese, mayonnaise, and sour cream, equal parts. Heart defying and incredible! When the bartender was having a particularly bad night, she could be found in the walk-in sitting on a bucket eating a cambro pan of chocolate mousse…good times indeed.
Thank you so much…this is exactly what I am looking for!!! We used to go to the one in Sun Valley Mall. ALWAYS Had the cheese fritters followed by some type of crepe. I can’t wait to make the cheese fritters to start. Many memories. Thanks again
