Crepes For A Romantic Dinner

I was introduced to crepes by my husband who lived in Belgium for two years.  I was hooked.  They are extremely versatile and can be served savory or sweet or both in the same meal.  We’ve used them for special occasions because they are so very delicious, but they are so easy.  Some people feel like they are too complicated, but it’s just the opposite.  Give them a try!  And because they are French doesn’t that make them a perfect idea for a romantic dinner or breakfast in bed?

Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 TBL. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 TBL. vanilla
  • 2 TBL. butter melted

Directions

  • Sift dry ingredients together in bowl and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat eggs. Then mix in milk and vanilla. Add in flour mixture slowly until mixed well.
  • Stir in melted butter.
  • For best results chill batter for 1 hour.
  • Heat a small skillet to medium to high heat. Pour a small amount of batter (about 1/3-1/2 cup) into pan and quickly swirl pan around to cover the entire bottom.
  • When the crepe begins to bubble and brown on edges, flip over to the other side by gently jerking the pan to loosen the crepe and flipping, or use a spatula.
  • Place on paper towel and cover with foil.

Number of servings: 12

Some of my favorite toppings:

  • chicken gravy with pieces of chicken (chicken, cream of chicken soup, milk)
  • Scrambled eggs and cheese
  • pudding (any flavor)
  • butter and brown sugar
  • fruit pie fillings and whip cream
  • fruit

We love having crepe bars with all types of toppings for everyone to make their own.
