I’m talking about crepes!!! Last night my friend Alex came over to workout. After working out we decided to make ham and cheese crepes for dinner. Since Alex is French she’s a pro at making crepes and I was so excited to learn!
Ham and Cheese Crepes:
2 cups Milk
5 1/2 Tbsp Butter (melted)
1/4 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Oil (not olive)
2 tsp Vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups Flour
Ham (I used 2 slices per crepe)
Cheese (we used provolone, and used 3 slices per crepe)
*Powdered sugar or syrup if you prefer for topping*
* Caution! Read the measurements carefully and correctly! Out first batch of batter was wasted by mixing up the oil and flour measurements 😳 oops!
In a blender mix 1/2 of the milk (1 cup) and the eggs. Then add the melted butter, sugar, and then the oil blending after each addition. Add the vanilla extract with the last of the milk and add to the blender. Slowly add the flour a little at a time until fully incorporated.
Turn stove to level 2 or 3 (I have a gas stove which is usually hotter so adjust as needed) and butter the pan. Pour in enough batter to fill the bottom of the pan, circle it around to make sure it is evenly covered.
Let the crepe cook for about a minute and a half. Once the liquid of the crepe has cooked, circle the pan to loosen the crepe, when the crepe easily slides around the pan it is time to flip! Bring the crepe a little past the edge of the pan and flip it! *If your crepe folds in on itself use a spatula to gently try to unfold it, sometimes reflipping it helps*. Don’t worry if the first side isn’t quite golden enough, you can always flip it back over after the second side.
Once the second side is nice and golden, transfer to a plate (or flip back to the first side if needed).
Add the ham and cheese, then roll up the crepe, we heated ours in the microwave a bit to melt the cheese because our crepes were all cooled by the time we finished with the batter, and topped them with powdered sugar! Voila!!!
My first flip was perfect, which was really exciting!! I’m totally a natural at crepe making! I can’t wait to try out different crepe recipes!
Have you ever made crepes? Any yummy filling ides for me?
