Ham & Cheese Crepes

Many people are intimidated by the idea of making the beautifully thin, lacy French pancakes we all know and love as crepes—from tilting the pan carefully to ensuring that they’re evenly cooked, to folding them neatly to hold any savory or sweet filling you desire, a crepe is delicious, perfect for any occasion and any time of the day, and surprisingly not that hard to make with a little practice.

As long as you keep a steady hand and have some patience, you’ll have no trouble at all making this delicious recipe that’s particularly suited for breakfast or merienda, but will be just as tasty with a side of fresh salad or roasted asparagus or soup for lunch or dinner, just as they serve it at a café by the Seine! Just remember that these are best served hot, so give yourself time to prep these!
