Crepes

France is known for its culinary acheivements. French food is more of an art than anything else, and the French certainly have a love for eating. I can see why now after trying these crepes. My mom and Syd loved them too. (Harper didn't try one since she decided today was backwards day. She had mac and cheese for breakfast. Ew!)

France produces over 400 types of cheese! I chose to stuff my crepes with cheese and eggs. I made the other ones for my family with fruit and cream cheese. Savory crepes have more salt added to them, and sweet crepes have sugar. I'll put both recipes.

Cheese and Egg Crepe (serves 1):
3 Tbsp flour
pinch of salt
1/2 egg
2 ounces milk
2 ounces water
1/2 tbsp oil

Process the ingredients in a blender. Put it in the fridge for 30 minutes. Preheat a large pan on medium, and pour all the batter into it. Cook until you are able to flip it. Cook the other side for about 30 sec. Stuff with eggs, cheese, mushrooms, or ham.

Sweet Crepes (serves 2):
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp sugar
pinch of salt
1 tbsp oil

Whisk ingredients together. Cook on a preheated skillet until one side is done and you can flip it. Cook the other side about 30 seconds. Stuff with cream cheese mixture.*


*Cream Cheese Mixture:
1/2 cup cream cheese
3 strawberries, sliced
handful of blueberries
sugar or sweet caramel sprinkles (My mom sells Pampered Chef, and one of their products is caramel sprinkles for bagels.)

Mix all the ingredients together. Stuff inside of the crepe.


Enjoy! Or you could just have mac and cheese. :)
