Crepes

When I think of crepes, I don’t think of lunching at a sidewalk cafe in Paris, instead I think of my Bat Mitzvah. That’s right, I had a crepe station at my Bat Mitzvah. No gauche chicken nugget bar or candy table — crepes. My classy roots run deep. Side note: my Bat Mitzvah was an elegant brunchtastic affair in a garden setting. Now back to the crepes. This recipe is surprisingly simple and easy to make — all you need is a nonstick frying pan and a spatula. I decided to go savory and threw in some herbs to the batter and sautéed mushrooms and onions to put inside. Crepes are a great brunch alternative to pancakes or omelets. These will have you saying, “holy crepe, these are good!” all weekend long.

Crepes

From The New York Times Magazine

3 eggs

1/4 cup flour

1/4 cup milk

2 tablespoons melted butter

pinch of salt

handful of chopped herbs (parsley, dill, mint)

Beat eggs and whisk in remaining ingredients. Heat a nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Add a ladleful of batter to the pan, just enough to thinly coat the bottom of the pan. Cook until the edges start to brown, about 30 seconds. Flip and cook for about 10 seconds. Stack crepes on a plate and cover with a cloth towel to keep warm until serving.
