Serves or Makes: 6

Recipe

  • 2 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/ 4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/ 2 cups milk
  • 1 dozen eggs, divided
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/ 4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 pound bacon
  • chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
  • chopped fresh chives, for garnish

Method

  • Step 1

    Combine flour, sugar, salt, milk, four eggs and the melted butter in a food processor or blender and blend on high for 30 seconds. Let rest for 15 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Heat a 9 inch non-stick skillet over medium heat and lightly coat with butter. Add 1/3 cup batter and swirl to completely cover skillet. Cook until underside of crepe is very lightly starting to brown, about 2 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Loosen edge of crepe with spatula and then either using large spatula or your fingers, lift it up and flip it over. Cook another 1-2 minutes and then slide out of skillet onto wax paper. Repeat until all crepes are done. You should have about 8 when you are done.

  • Step 4

    Preheats the oven to 350˚F. Place crepes on a rimmed baking sheet (you can fit 3-4 per sheet). Cut bacon pieces in half and fit 4 halves (2 full pieces) in center of crepe and carefully crack egg onto it. Fold edges of crepe toward center, using the egg white as a kind of glue. Season with salt and pepper and bake until egg white is set, about 10-12 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and chives
