preparing crepes....

I enjoy creating crepes for breakfast...I made a batch yesterday...I like crepes because they are very thin and you can place anything you want in them, then roll them up!..Some people like them for lunch filled with various foods...I haven't tried those yet.....There is a local eaterie that prepares crepes and they have them for lunch as a sandwich also...I will have to go enjoy lunch there sometime and try one!....

The filling of a crepe can be:
Nutella or any brand Hazelnut Chocolate with whip topping
Whip Topping with fresh fruit
Whip Topping with canned pie filling of your choice
Then those that are prepared for noon meals like a sandwich.

Crepes are a very delicate pastry like dough, very thin and it takes practice often to prepare them perfectly....

Recipe for crepes

2 eggs beaten
1 and 1/2 cups milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1/4 teaspoon salt (if you wish)

(non-stick skillets work best, or crepe makers are good..i don't have one..i use a regular skillet.)

1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, flour, oil, and salt. Beat until combined.

2. Heat a lightly greased skillet to low medium heat, add enough oil to lightly cook. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the crepe batter, lift and tilt the skillet so the batter will cover the skillet bottom. Be careful! Return to heat, lightly brown on one side only..(You may be able to create crepes easier on a griddle.) Remove with pancake turner, or thin flat utensil. Place the crepe onto a paper-toweled plate and then place another paper towel onto the top of the crepe. Repeat this process until you have prepared all of the crepes.The paper towels are to drain the oil off of them.

3. After you complete preparing all of the crepes, remove from the paper towels and place onto a clean, sanitary surface so they will cool. Enjoy when you want a crepe!...Layer the cooled crepes like you did with paper towels BUT this time use wax paper, place in a extra large freezer plastic bag(like a Ziploc bag) Place in freezer, they will freeze up to 4 months. Thaw before using.
