Most people think of crepes as breakfast food, but I prefer a savory breakfast. The tart yogurt filling and the buttermilk in the batter balance really well with the sweet raspberries. Feel free to use organic frozen berries when they are not in season.
"This dish is, for me, the epitome of spring. Wild vegetables just folded together with fresh herbs, spring eggs, and crème fraîche. As a child, I spent a lot of time foraging for morel mushrooms, fiddlehead ferns and wild ramps with my mother. She would scramble our harvest with our own farm eggs in a dish not so different from this one. Come spring, this is a regular feature on our lunch menu and it sells out every time." – Seamus Mullen

I was always intimidated by crepes. They sound fancy, and I thought you needed a special pan, special ingredients, etc. I was wrong and they actually are just as easy as pancakes. They're now one of my kids’ favorite breakfasts (or dinners if my husband is out – they seem to think it’s a secret if we have them for dinner and will ask me, “Does Dad know?”). But you need to make the batter in a blender and chill in the fridge for at least an hour or even overnight if you want to be organized on a Sunday morning.
Once you are ready to roll, the key is to have everything assembled before you start cooking them, because the pace is fast and furious. I set out sliced strawberries, powdered sugar, warm maple syrup, chocolate syrup and whipped cream (it’s a special treat, after all!), call the kids to the table and transfer the crepes to their plates as I make them. You can make them in advance, cool them, and freeze them in a resealable plastic bag separated by wax paper. However, I’ve never had the opportunity, as we never have any extras!tags: breakfast BLD brunch lunch Budget-Friendly rice, grains and breads griddle food processor or blender more
