With just five basic ingredients, you can whip up a gourmet Christmas breakfast that's also versatile. Keep it simple with the classic cinnamon, sugar, and butter combination or add more sweetness with your favorite chopped fruit, jams, whipped cream, Nutella, or peanut butter. Or, you can go the savory route with chicken, eggs, vegetables, or cheese.
Recipe by Our Best Bites
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tbs canola oil
- 3 Tbs sugar (omit if making savory crepes)
- 1 C flour
- 1 1/3 C milk
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on low speed until combined, or whisk by hand until there are no lumps.
Heat a non-stick skillet to medium-high heat. Hold pan with one hand while you pour the batter with the other hand. Twirl the pan in a circular motion pouring just enough batter to coat the bottom of the pan. Place on cooking surface and cook until edges are set and you can easily run a rubber spatula around the edge of the pan, 30 seconds. Flip crepe and cook an additional 15-20 seconds. Remove crepe from pan and either keep warm in the oven or cool to room temperature.
Fill with your choice of savory (meat, cheese, vegetable) or sweet (pudding, mousse, pastry cream, fruit) filling.
Unfilled crepes can be stacked between sheets of waxed paper and refrigerated or frozen. To thaw, leave at room temperature.
