Mmmmm Crêpes

Crêpe. It’s a French word and thus quite terrifying to me. I assumed that if it was French it had to be complicated. You can’t really blame me, I mean just take a look at this croissant recipe. But as it turns out, crêpes are incredibly easy to make, not to mention infinitely versatile!

Again, as with the Scottish Shortbread, the food didn’t last long enough for a picture and was quickly and happily devoured.

The recipe doesn’t include fillings because that is entirely up to you. They can be savory or sweet, breakfast, lunch or dinner, simple or complex. One of my favorites is fresh berries and cream, but the possibilities are endless!

  1. OMG!! you are such a cooking nut!

    Do you suppose the crepes would store in the fridge and could be filled with the bacon/egg as needed ? I’m always looking for things to prepare ahead for breakfast (Dad’s) and lunches (mine).

    1. According to http://www.professorshouse.com/food-beverage/food/crepes.aspx crepes stay good covered in the fridge for 2 days. You can also freeze them: “For even longer storage, crepes freeze well with no harmful effects to their quality. To freeze them, divide them into mini stacks of 6 (each separated by a square of wax paper or parchment paper). Wrap the mini stack in aluminum foil. When you are ready to use the crepes, thaw them in the oven for 10 minutes at 300 degrees.”
      They’re also good for lunch and dinner! You can fill them with sandwich meat and eat like a wrap, or with steak stroganoff or, or, or… oh boy, here I go again 😀
