Cooking in the Canyon Weekly Recipe

Savory Crêpes

Ingredients: (Makes 16–18) • 2 large eggs • 1 cup milk • 1/3 cup water • 1 cup all-purpose flour • 1/4 teaspoon salt • 2 tablespoons butter, melted and 2 or 3 teaspoons butter for coating the pan Directions: 1. In a blender or food processor, blend the eggs, milk, water, flour, salt and the 2 tablespoons of butter until smooth. 2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. 3. Gently stir the batter if it has separated. 4. Coat a pan lightly with butter and heat over medium-high heat until hot. 5. Lift the pan from the heat, and pour in 2–3 tablespoons of batter—tilting and rotating the pan to coat the surface. 6. Cook about 1 minute, until almost dry on top and lightly browned on the edges—flip and cook for about 15 seconds or until lightly browned. Variations: • Herb Crêpes: just add 1/4 cup minced fresh chives, basil or flat-leaf parsley to the batter while blending it. • Sun-Dried Tomato Crêpes: just add 1/4 cup minced oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes to the batter while blending it. • Whole-Wheat Crêpes: just replace the 1 cup all-purpose flour with 1 cup whole-wheat flour.
