"Player" Crepes
INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 2 minutes
  • Servings: Makes 8
  • Preparation Time: 5 minutes
  • 1 1/2 cups regular or low-fat milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Add any fruit, meat, vegetables, cottage cheese, ricotta, or smoked fish. Change the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to sage, thyme or garlic for meat and vegetable crepes
DIRECTIONS
  1. In a large mixing bowl combine the milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add the flour and salt. Whisk until smooth.
  2. 2. Heat a 10-inch nonstick skillet over high heat. Add a thin slice of butter and quickly swirl the pan. When the butter sputters, use a 1/3-cup measure to spoon the crepe batter into the pan, quickly tilting the skillet to cover the surface.
  3. 3. Let the crepe cook for 1 minute. With an offset metal spatula, loosen the edges of the crepe and carefully lift up the crepe and turn it over. Cook 1 minute. Flip the crepe onto a plate. Repeat with the remaining butter and batter.
RECIPE BACKSTORY
You can make the batter a day in advance; freeze leftover crepes between sheets of waxed paper. To reheat, remove waxed paper and then microwave for 35 seconds.
