Weekend Brunch: Savory Crepes

 As a child, the crepes I had were made by my grandma and filled with berries, jams, cottage cheese, whipped cream and powdered sugar. Being picky for the first 20 years of my life, I naturally resisted these burrito style crepes.  It just didn't seem like an appetizing meal. Similar to my dislike for mustard, beans or avocados I slowly realized that I must be missing out on something that the greater population enjoyed.

These crepes are super simple to whip up and you can wrap them around any type of scramble.

4 eggs
1/2 c Bisquick
1/4 c cream (half and half or heavy whipping cream)
oil or butter for the pan

2 eggs
1/8 of an onion diced
4 asparagus stalks
2 mushrooms
1/4 bell pepper chopped
1 dollop of sour cream
salt & pepper

Put all of the ingredients into a blender and puree until there are no lumps left over. If you are doing this by hand use a whisk and whisk hard.

Coat a skillet with olive oil or butter and turn heat onto medium-low. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet and swirl around so the batter covers the entire pan.

Cook for about 30 seconds to a minute until the underside looks brown and flip the crepe. Cook for another 30 seconds to a minute and set aside. Repeat this process again until you've used up all of the batter.

For the filling saute the onion, asparagus, mushrooms and bell pepper until cooked thoroughly. About 5-8 minutes. Set the vegetables aside and scramble your two eggs. Once the eggs are halfway cooked add in your chopped veggies. Wrap the veggie and egg scramble into the crepe with a dollop of sour cream.

I'm a huge fan of crepes, but I would rather not use Bisquick..Tried it once, ended up with lumpy, pancake-like crepes...
I stick with 3 eggs, 2 cups of milk, 1 cup 'o flour, a dash of salt (and if you want them for something sweet, add bout a tablespoon of sugar, and a teaspoon or two of vanilla extract).

Other than that, sounds like an interesting dinner crepe...I'm always looking for new things to add into crepes...G'luck...Kinda wish you kept the blog going....I'll check back up on it in a week or two to see if anythings changed...Later!

Liam - It's so thoughtful of you to comment on my blog. I do plan on blogging more but under a different blog name! Keep up the feedback, and let me know how my recipes turn out when you try them.

Our kitchen is under construction now but once it is up and going I'll try your recipe!
