Crepe Bar

Crepe Bar

Makes 12-16

This is an all-in-one recipe for a Crepe Bar, perfect for your New Year’s brunch with family and friends. I like to make the crepes ahead of time and then the next morning I just put all of the fillings into bowls for my guests to make their own crepe. If you are in a pinch you can buy pre-made crepes at the store.

Bechamel Sauce Recipe

Ingredients

Savory Fillings

  • 2 cups scrambled eggs (about 8 eggs)
  • 3/4 cup gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup goat cheese
  • 1 cup chicken sausage, cooked
  • ½ pound ham, thinly sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons chives, minced
  • 1 cup champagne mushrooms (see below for recipe)
  • 2 cups béchamel sauce (click for recipe)

Sweet Fillings

  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • ½ cup Nutella
  • 1 cup whipped cream

Whole Wheat Crepes

  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup + 4 teaspoons milk (I use skim milk)
  • 1/3 cup pain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1- 2 Tablespoons olive oil

Directions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl whisk together all of the ingredients thoroughly. Cover and keep in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  2. Place a 12 inch non-stick fry pan over medium/low heat.
  3. Dip a paper towel in olive oil and brush the inside of the pan.
  4. Scoop ¼ cup of the batter into the pan and swirl around to make a thin layer, cook for 2 minutes. With a flat flexible spatula, carefully flip the crepe over and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the pan. Repeat with remaining batter.
  5. If you want to make them ahead of time, cool the crepes and place a piece of plastic wrap in-between each one, wrap with plastic and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  6. Fill each crepe with desired ingredients. To melt the cheese in the savory crepes, place filled crepe on a cookie sheet in a 350 degree oven for 5-7 minutes.
