Crepes recipes

After high school, my older brother's best friend AJ joined the Navy. When he finished his time with the Navy, he traveled in Europe. While there, he stayed with a French family who taught him to make crepes. He gave the recipe to my brother, and it has become a deliciously popular breakfast in our family.  (Thanks Tim!)

We had them on my last birthday morning...YUM!!

Crepes (from France, indirectly!)
2 eggs – whipped
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons melted butter

Recommended Toppings
Nutella Hazelnut spread (found near the peanut butter)
Fruit preserves, strawberries
Peanut butter
Whipped cream

1. Heat griddle to 350 degrees.
2. Blend all ingredients in blender. If you don’t have a blender, whip the eggs, then mix in the other ingredients.
3. Pour 1/2 cup of mixture onto non-stick griddle.
4. Lift griddle and turn on angles to spread the batter out on the griddle so that the crepe will be thinner.
5. Cook until the center is moist, but the edges are dry.
6. Flip crepe and cook for about one minute.
7. Since I oil the griddle prior to cooking, I will often pat the crepe with a paper towel to remove excess oil before adding toppings.
Turn the pans so that the crepes thin & spread out...

My daughter Rebekah found another crepes recipe in an old Clubhouse kids magazine and when she makes crepes, she uses this simple one:

1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 egg

1. Mix together three ingredients in a medium bowl. If needed, add more milk to make batter thinner. 
2. Heat large skillet on the stove at medium high heat.
3. Pour batter into the center of the pan and spread with spoon to make crepe thin. 
4. Cook crepe until bubbles appear in center, flip over and cook on other side.
5. Remove from pan and top with any combination of toppings.

Toppings they recommend: butter, powdered sugar, fruit, whipped cream, chocolate sauce

The crepe is done when it is light brown and the edges are
dry & lifting off the pan.
Let me know if you try them, they are just delicious! They're a huge hit around here!
