What is a crepe? We found they are a delicious and lighter version of the pancake served with sweet or savory fillings. The best part is being able to customize it to everyone’s taste! Want a sweet crepe? Add in Nutella, fresh strawberries and top it with whipped cream. For a group, set up a make your crepe bar with lots of topping options. When you say, I love you, say it with bacon. We love you a brunch!
For the Crêpe Batter
1 Egg ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons Milk
¼ cup Water
½ cup All-Purpose Flour
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
¼ teaspoon Salt
For the Fillings
4-5 Eggs (one for each crêpe )
1 lb Bacon, cooked and crumbled
Grated Cheese, such as Cheddar, Gruyère or Parmesan
3 Green Onions, green parts only, sliced thin
Chile Flakes, for garnish
- Make the crêpe batter: In a blender combine all ingredients and blend until smooth, about 10-20 seconds.
- Preheat a small frying pan or crêpe pan over medium heat. Grease with butter and add 1 ounce of crêpe batter to the pan, immediately swirling around to coat the bottom of the pan. Cook for about 30 seconds on one side and then flip and continue to cook another 10-20 seconds. Lay them flat to cool.
- Fill the crêpes: preheat oven to 350F. In a small frying pan over medium heat, fry eggs, individually, sunny side up. Place on a plate until ready to use.
- Lay crêpes flat on a baking sheet and fill with one egg, 2-4 tablespoons of cheese (your choice), crumbled bacon and a sprinkle of green onions. Fold the two sides in to create a cone shape at the base. Bake for 3-5 minutes, just until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with few extra green onions, chili flakes or freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately.
