Recipe of the week: Crepes- Easy as 1-2-3!

Crepes are a special treat at our house. I've made them for special occasion brunches or just a fun Saturday breakfast. The nice thing about crepes is that they are very versatile. You can have a crepe with a simple filling, or get as fancy as you like! Our typical fillings are scrambled eggs or strawberries with cream. My kids love them!

Easy as 1-2-3!

1- Mix
2- Cook
3- Eat!

3 eggs
2 T. oil
1 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 c. milk

Mix all ingredients well, starting with the flour, salt, oil, eggs and last of all, milk. When smooth and fairly liquid (like picture below), let rest for at least 10 minutes.

Cook in greased fry pan on medium high. Pour a very small amount of batter in the pan and then lift the pan and turn round and round to make the batter spread out into a very thin layer. Turn the crepe with a spatula when the edges start turning golden brown.

Fill with the topping of choice and enjoy!

Another favorite topping for crepes that I love is a mushroom sauce. This one goes well with the egg filling.

Mushroom sauce
1 can mushrooms, chopped (Fresh mushrooms could also be used)
2 T. chopped onions
3 T. margarine

Fry above ingredients together until tender.

1/2 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/8 t. pepper

Add these four ingredients to the mushroom and onion mixture.

1 c. sour cream
1/3 c. milk
1 t. dry mustard
2 T. parsley

Mix together and add to the mushroom mixture and heat to a boiling point. Cool slightly before serving.

After you've mastered crepes, who knows? Then you can start to master these beautiful dishes:

We have crepes with sandwich stuff in them, they are so good! Just put mayo, lunch meat, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes! It is good! Or use cream cheese too!
