Father's Day Brunch

For Father's Day, Geoff and I went up to his cottage for the weekend. To be honest, we had no idea what kind of breakfast foods he liked to eat so we gave his mom a list of foods that we like to make. She informed us that crepes would be good, so we just had to decide on what to put on them.

We quickly decided to make them as breakfast-y as possible and decided to add eggs and bacon. They were great. I knew they were going to be good but they turned out great.

We also made the dessert crepes again for a breakfast dessert. A kind of heavy but great meal!

1 c cold water
1 c cold milk
4 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 c flour
4 tbsp melted butter
(add 2 tsp sugar for dessert crepes).

  1. Cook a slice of bacon per crepe you plan on eating. Once done, pat with paper towel to remove excess grease then crumble into bits and set aside.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together in a blender. I don't think it really matters in what order you add everything, since it's all just going to be mixed up together anyway. At this point, you're supposed to refrigerate the batter for two hours to let it settle down, but we never have and they always turn out great.
  3. Heat up a frying pan to about medium high and put a little tiny bit of oil on it to stop the crepe from sticking.
  4. Here's the tricky part, figuring out how much batter to use to make each crepe. Be prepared to screw the first few up. Pour a little in and quickly turn the pan about until the batter is completely covering the bottom of a pan. Let it cook until it looks stable enough, then flip.
  5. Crack an egg into the center of the crepe and put some of the bacon bits on top. Fold up the edges to make a rough square. Place onto a baking sheet and then under the broiler for about 1 minute to let the rest of the egg cook.
  6. If you are making dessert crepes as well, with the rest of the batter, add 2 tsp sugar, and cook as above. When done, add sliced fruit, some melted Nutella and a bit of whipped cream.
