      Marie’s Crepe Variations

      Sandwich Crepes

Melt a slice of cheese and add ham or turkey to a crepe with a cream Dijon mustard, a curry mayo, or a condiment of your choice for a delicious lunch alternative. For a vegetarian sandwich, I like to add avocado, tomatoes, red onion and cream cheese. My daughters love a warm peanut butter and jelly crepe.

    Crêpe Suzette

Prepare an orange butter by adding 1/4 cup sugar to the zest of one orange. Cream sugar mixture into 1 stick of softened butter until fluffy then beat in 1/3 cup orange juice and 2 TBL orange liqueur. In a chaffing dish, add butter mixture and heat until bubbling. Dip both sides of cooked crepes in butter, fold and add to pan. Serve warm.

    Chef’s Notes:

Make sure you use a non-stick or crepe pan and get is supper hot. You should hear a sizzling sound when you pour in the batter. If batter becomes too thick, thin with 2-4 TBL of additional liquid such as water, milk or milk/alternative.
