Crepes!

crepe: a very thin small pancake, often stuffed and rolled up.


so, i had never had a very thin, small pancake stuffed and rolled up. why you ask? good question- i had NO idea what i was missing out on! easy, quick, delish breakfast!

with all my blog surfing i saw this recipe for a basic crepes. i was excited to see that it doesn't take many ingredients to make and the combinations are endless!

what you need:

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted

what you do:

in a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.

heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.

cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. cook until other side is light brown. serve hot.

what to put on/in your crepes:

the one that brad and i made was what we like to call "a southwest crepe" we filled the inside with scrambled eggs, salsa, tomatoes, hot sauce, cilantro, and cheese. it was SO good!

you could go simple and just do cinnamon and sugar. sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on the inside. roll the crepe up and sprinkle with more cinnamon and sugar.

you could top with whipped cream and strawberries OR you could get really crazy and fill with whipped cream, roll it up, and top with more whipped cream and fresh strawberries...or any other fruit! peaches, bananas, apples, blueberries…whatever tickles your fancy!

the combinations are endless!

YAY for crepes! they take no time to make and they are yummmmmmy!
