Gluten free Crepes have become my go-to for breakfast during the week. I get up at 5:30 with Mr. Everything most mornings. While he showers I cook us breakfast (the trade off is he cooks breakfast on the weekends!). The crepes are easy to make and can be filled and/or topped with anything we want. Which makes these gluten free crepes never a boring breakfast.
I also love the fact that when I make a full batch it will feed us for 2-3 breakfasts, making my job in the morning that much easier. They reheat wonderfully and can even be frozen, thawed and reheated. Making them great candidates for meal planning and prep.
I like to make the batter up the night before. This allows the batter plently of time to rest and lets the flour absorb the liquid properly. Plus is saves me time in the morning so it's a win-win.
These crepes are a little delecate while cooking but are nice and palable when they are done. They are perfect for rolling up and folding in all sorts of goodies.
Are you team sweet or team savory?
One of our favorite ways to enjoy crepes is with sweetened cream cheese and jam (also known as a blintz) but I've also gotten super fancy and filled them with bacon, scrambled eggs and spinach and topped it off with hollandaise sauce. The topping and filling possablilties are endless.
Todays recipe is simply for the gluten free crepes, with the option to make them sweet. That way you can decide how crazy you want to go with the toppings.
I've linked a few goodies in my amazon picks below but I wanted point out that you don't need a special crepe pan to make crepes. My large non-stick pan works just fine for me, but I'm sure it's easier to make big crepes in an actual crepe pan. If you find yourself making them often it might be worth getting a special crepe pan, but don't let it hold you back from making crepes in the first place.Print
