Dessert for Breakfast

My magazine arrived yesterday and I had everything in the cupboard- we had the simple crepes with chocolate-hazelnut and bananas this morning. They were a hit. Can't wait to try them with goat cheese and roasted veggies!

Simple Crepes (Everyday Food, Martha Stewart, Jan/Feb 2011)

1 cup flour, spooned and leveled

1 tablespoon sugar

¼ teaspoon coarse salt

1 ½ cups whole milk

4 large eggs

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

In a blender, combine above ingredients. Puree until mixture is smooth and bubbles form on top, about 30 seconds. Let batter sit at least 15 minutes at room temperature (or refrigerate in an airtight container, up to 1 day; whisk before using). Heat a 12” nonstick skillet over medium. Lightly coat with butter. Add 1/3 cup batter and swirl to completely cover bottom of skillet. Cook until underside of crepe is golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Loosen edge of crepe with a rubber spatula, then with your fingertips, quickly flip. Cook 1 minute more. Slide crepe out of skillet and repeat with remaining batter.

Chocolate-Hazelnut and Banana Crepe

After flipping crepe in the skillet, top with 2 tablespoons (I used half that amount) chocolate hazelnut spread such as Nutella and ½ banana, thinly sliced. Cook until spread melts, about 1 minute. Fold into quarters.

Crepes with Vegetables and Goat Cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Place 4 crepes on a rimmed baking sheet. Place 2 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese and ½ cup roasted vegetables such as bell pepper, eggplant, mushroom and onion, down the center of each crepe. Season with coarse salt and pepper. Fold edges over filling. Bake until cheese softens and filling is warm 5 minutes. Makes 4.
