Whether you’re standing in line at a street vendor in Paris or in front of your stove on a Saturday morning, crêpes feel like an extra-special treat. Of course, it’s often not so much about the delicate, tender wrapping as it is about what decadent filling you choose to put inside. Do you have a favorite? Sweet or savory, vegetarian or not, light or filling - crêpes are truly the perfect vehicle for just about any sort of filling you desire. Sweet Fillings - We like these by themselves or in combination with each other • Nutella - Either straight or paired with chunks of banana • Peanut Butter - Again either straight or paired with bananas...or chocolate sauce! • Fruit Preserves or Jam • Fresh Cut Fruit - Ripe bananas, fresh peaches, raspberries, and sliced cherries are favorites • Ricotta - Especially with a little powder sugar mixed in • Dulce de Leche • Nuts - Roasted almonds, walnuts, and pecans Savory Fillings - These certainly can be meals by themselves • Sautéed Vegetables - Like mushrooms, caramelized onions, spinach, and roasted red peppers • Pull Pork or Chicken - With or without some barbecue sauce! • Fresh Eggs - Fried, poached, or scrambled • Cheese - Goat cheese, bleu cheese, shredded gouda, cheddar, feta • Beans - Navy, pinto, garbanzo, or black beans • Picked Vegetables • Sour Cream or Ricotta What are your favorite kinds of crêpes?
