Basic Crepes

This past week was my son Miles' birthday, and when I asked him what he wanted for his birthday he replied without hesitation, "Crepes!"
We had these with fresh strawberries and some sour cream sweetened with powdered sugar. We also surreptitiously put a little Nutella on a few of them(hey- it was his birthday after all). Bananas, peaches or raspberry jam are also favorite toppings.
You can also turn crepes into a meal by stuffing them with more savory things like ham, asparagus, and cheese.Although they take just a bit more finesse than pancakes, your patience will be well rewarded. They are delicious with both savory or sweet fillings.

2 eggs
1 cup milk
2 tbsp oil/butter
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup flour
Desired fillings


 Assemble ingredients:
 Add eggs to bowl.
 Beat until well combined, then add milk.
 Add oil and salt and beat until well combined.
 Slowly add flour, whisking to combine until all of the flour is incorporated.

Grease your frying pan and heat over a medium flame until hot.

Add about 1/4 cup (80ml) to the center of the pan. Rotate and swirl the pan until the batter forms a nice wide circle.

Cook 2 minutes or until the edges start to crisp a little.
Carefully turn and cook on the other side until done.

Add desired filling.

Roll up. Eat and enjoy.
