    Thin Crepes

    The Best Thin Crepes

    Thin crepes are simple to make since you only need a few basic ingredients such as flour, milk, and eggs. Plus these ingredients are usually inexpensive, which makes this dish an affordable breakfast for all budgets.

    In fact, thin crepes can be made many ways: for breakfast or brunch, for lunch, for dessert… And they can be served sweet or salty! You can also make them ahead. With ham, eggs, and cheese, thin crepes can make a delicious lunch like those you find in Paris. With fruits, chocolate, homemade hazelnut spread (or shop-bought, like Nutella), or maple syrup, they make an excellent breakfast or dessert. In short, they’re super versatile and delicious, which makes them perfect for lively brunches, but also for busy weeknights.

    What to do if you made TOO MANY crepes?

    Here are ways to use your crepe surplus:

    • Keep them in the refrigerator or freezer: place a layer of parchment paper between each crepe and put the stack in a ziploc bag.
    • Heat them: crepes can be reheated in the microwave or in a pan over medium-low heat.
    • Use them as a basis for other desserts: crepes can make delicious cinnamon rolls, crêpes Suzette, apple crepes, or pastry cream crepes.
    • Use them as a basis for salty dishes: crepes can make quesadillas, wraps, or sandwiches.
    • Use them to make a crepe cake.

    There are many ways to use surplus, whether for a salty or sweet dish. Have fun and be creative! Use different fillings and make surprising flavour combinations!

    For protein-rich crepes

    Did you know you could switch out cow’s milk with a protein milk that contains up to 18 grams of protein per cup? It will make your crepe recipe more filling while not affecting the taste. You could use a plant-based milk of your choice. This recipe is super easy to personalize!

    For gluten-free crepes, try this recipe with potato starch! They are just as delicious.
