A crêpe is a type of very thin pancake (usually made from wheat flour) which the word is of French origin, deriving from the Latin crispa, meaning “curled.” Crêpes are originally from Brittany, a region in the northwest of France, their consumption is widespread in France and they are considered a national dish, and they are also increasingly popular in North America and South America…
Here is a simple recipe for 12 crepes :
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 2 Cups of milk
- 1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
- 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 8 mushrooms stems trimmed, wiped clean, and roughly chopped
- 1/4 pound baked ham, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
- 1/4 cup dill
- 1 chopped green onion
- 2 cup grated Gruyere
Direction for Crepes
Whisk together the flour, eggs, milk, parsley, dill, salt, pepper until you form a smooth, thin batter. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before proceeding.
Heat a heavy 6-inch skillet or crepe pan over medium-high heat. When hot, brush with a light coating of the remaining butter. Pour about 1/4 cup of crepe batter into the pan. Cook until golden brown . Pour the mix of ham, muhroom, onion (which you will have already pre cook together) and voila!
Bon appetite! Jonathan
