A Two Course Crepe Lunch

Crepes are absolutely delicious. That is a fact that no one can dispute. Unfortunately, places McDonalds and Subway just have not caught on to the crepe trend. Who wants to eat a nasty burger or sandwich made out of questionable meat when you can have a crepe? Fear not, I now present you with a fast and easy way to make a two course meal of crepes that is sure to satisfy. This crepe recipe makes two crepes- the perfect amount for you to make a sweet crepe and a savory crepe, creating a wonderful meal. The fillings are sure to impress. Bacon and cheese? Yes, please! Strawberries, chocolate, and Nutella? I know I have you drooling.

Single Serving Crepes
makes 2
For the batter:
½ cup flour
pinch of salt
1 egg yolk
¼ cup milk
¼ cup water
1 tbsp melted butter
½ tsp sugar

Bacon, Cheese, and Spinach Filling:
4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
½ cup shredded mixed cheese (mozzarella, parmesan, asiago, romano, fontina, provolone, or any combination of these)
¼ cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

Strawberry Nutella Filling:
3 strawberries, chopped
2 tbsp milk chocolate chips
1 tbsp mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus more for topping
2 tbsp Nutella
powdered sugar, to top

Add all the ingredients for the batter except for the sugar together into a blender. Blend until everything is well incorporated and there are no lumps. Allow the batter to sit for 20 minutes at room temperature. Preheat a large skilled brushed with oil over medium-high heat. Add half of the batter to the pan, swirling it around to create a thin crepe. Cook until the top is dried and the bottom is golden. Flip and add the savory toppings onto one half of the crepe. Fold the top half over and slide the crepe onto your plate. Remove the pan from the heat and enjoy your meal. Once finished, whisk the sugar into the remaining crepe batter. Reheat the pan over medium-high and cook the sweet crepe the same way you made the savory one. Spread the Nutella onto one half of the crepe. Top with the chocolate chips and strawberries. Fold the crepe in half and top it with additional mini chocolate chips and powdered sugar.
