Savoury Crepes - Recipe!

Pancake day is coming and it is one of our favourite days of the year for food. We usually just stick to sweet one's but that is only because I have never really thought about savoury one's until now.

Pancakes and crepes look almost identical and are made in the same way but pancakes are much thicker than the very thin, lacy French crepe. 

Made with just four base ingredients, these savoury crêpes are ready to be filled with whatever you can find in the fridge: cheese, ham, mushrooms, tomatoes or even a fried egg! I think these are a great thing to make at the end of a week before a shopping trip when you want to use up random leftovers in the fridge.

Savoury Crepes

This recipe makes 6 crepes.
Prep time: 5 mins / Cook time: 30 minutes

2 large eggs.
200ml of milk.
120g of plain flour.
Butter for greasing pan.

Fillings: grated cheese and ham (torn into pieces) / grated cheese and mushrooms which are sliced and pan fried in butter but these crepes can be made with any filling of your choice! Onions, peppers, tomatoes, chicken and even vegetables.

A large mixing bowl.
A whisk or fork.
A small ladle or tablespoon.
A pancake/Crepe pan or large frying pan.
A spatula.


In the large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk and flour with the whisk to form a runny batter. 

Place your pan over medium heat and grease lightly with butter before spooning in about 2-3 tbsp of batter and swilling it around to form a thin, even crepe.

Return the pan to the heat and leave to cook for 30 seconds, then using the spatula, or flipping if you feel confident to, flip the crepe over and cook the other side for a further 30 seconds. 

Place the crepe on a plate and repeat steps 2 and 3 until all of the batter has been used, stacking them up as you go.
To fill, take one of the crepes, place it back in the pan and sprinkle with grated cheese and ham/mushrooms. Leave for 30 seconds, then fold the crêpe in half and then half again to create a quarter fold. Flip the whole thing over to brown the other side lightly and ensure all the cheese has melted, then serve.

Last year I shared a recipe for Banana Lava Pancakes which my family have had several times and we all love them.
