Savoury Crepe with all the goodies
Here is a simple one for lunch, brunch or even dinner. My kids simply love crepes. I learnt how to make crepes for the whole family when I was around ten. We used to have them for breakfast with jam. So I don't have a set recipe as such when I make crepes, I simply mix self-raising flour with eggs, water and a bit of milk to get the consistency and amount I want, crepe batter is usually a bit runnier than pancake batter. You also make crepes thinner than you normally would pancakes. Then to top your crepe, you can use all sorts of meat and vegies. Some people roll it all up, but I eat it flat and open with all the goodies heaped on it. I used lettuce, cooked fresh mushrooms, sweet corn, tuna and a bit of mayonnaise and heaps of cracked black pepper. Well, after having savoury crepes, my kids made their favourite sweet one topped with chocolate topping and icing sugar. I let them as that is truly delicious, I know, I say it's not as healthy, but I graciously let them have it as a dessert. Have a yummy weekend, hope you get to cook...........crepes.
