Crepes

Crepes… My favorite breakfast food of all time. When I was younger, I would prepare a batch of crepe batter sunday night so that each morning, periotically through the week, I could eat fresh crepes filled with chopped up turkey meat and grated cheese. Crepes can be served at Breakfast and dinner, but filled with an assortment of fillings.

For  breakfast, you can fill it with chopped up turkey and cheese, or jam. I believe that crepes with just cheese bore the senses. I like to add random ingredients: bacon, bell pepers, mushrooms, etc. Without variation, you become bored.

Another important issue to think about when talking crepes is the equitment. I accually own an offical crepe pan I recieved for Christmas in 2006. You do not need an offical pan, but make sure the sides are high enough sides. Alot try and use a pan that is non stick. If your pan has sticky sides, grease the sides well with butter so that flipping the crepe does not include speparation the crepe from the pan.

Now,when accually making a crepe, make sure you follow the recepei closly. One, make sure you tilt the pan so taht the batter thins out covering the whole pan. Two, do not add too much batter! This will leave your with an oddly think crepe or a crepe that runs up the sides. Crepe on the sides makes flipping difficult and might leave your dog or ants with a nice treat on the floor. Thirdly, make sure the batter is thin enough (without HUGE lumps) but not to smooth. Finally, always have a spatula ready. A spatula can save a crepe from burning on the pan.

    I love crepes! I usually have sweet crepes with fruit but I think your savory crepes with cheese and other things sound like a great idea!
