Christmas Crepes (for all seaons)

Christmas is nearly here. In my household, Christmas morning means two things: Wrapping paper covering the living room door so my kids cant get in there before me and crepes!!

Every Christmas morning, making a holiday breakfast while we wait for Grandparents to arrive to open presents we cook breakfast as a family. The most important thing on the menu is crepes. Those thin, Delicious french pancakes that just melt in your mouth. They are inexpensive to create, easy to make and truly could make any experience a special one.


1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Combine eggs, salt and flour. Mix in milk. Mix in butter. Batter should be smooth and runny, but may have a few lumps. That is fine!

In a wide, flat frying pan put approx 1/4 cup of batter in the center. With a twist motion to the pan, allow the batter to swirl out to a large, circular crepe.

Cook for approx. two minutes until browned. Sweep the edges with your spatula and then flip. Cook for one minute on the opposite side. Roll up for stoage.

Now there are filling ideas!

There are sweet fillings...

  • Cream cheese whipped with powdered sugar

  • Blueberry or Cherry pie filling

  • Pineapple and cream cheese whipped together

  • Maple Syrup

  • Fruit Chuney

  • Sliced bananas

Or savory...

  • Scrambled eggs

  • Scrambled eggs with sausage

  • Chicken salad

  • Ham salad

  • Tuna Salad

  • Cheese
