What can be better than a pancake? A really thin pancake, that’s what! Crepes are one of the most marvelous inventions known to man.
Add an egg, cheese, bacon, and your favorite toppings and you have the world’s most amazing savory crepe pocket!
Now before you get all ready to do things from scratch, I’ve got a really simple hack that will make prepping these crepes super simple!
Using a cup of Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix, a cup and a half of whole milk, and an egg, you’ve got your crepe mix ready to start crepe-ing
Crepe-ing is a word. Trust me. No need to google!
Quick side convo, but I’ve found a super easy way to bribe my son. With a crepe. I’ve never seen him so eager to get a quick chore done with the offer of a crepe at the end of the tunnel.
While we made them, he was mesmerized by the “polka dots” these crepes made while cooking as well.
So, I also see it as a getting him distracted from his favorite shark-song-that-shall-not-be-named for a few minutes as well!
If you’re intimidated by crepe-ing, don’t be. As long as you have a good non-stick pan, and a pancake spatula, crepes are fool-proof. They’ll let you know when they’re ready to come off, by the sides beginning to peel.
And if you get a little uneasy about trying to flip with a spatula, use your hands to help them along.
I filled these crepe pockets with egg, bacon, cheese and bell peppers. They hold up well in the oven while the egg sets, and if you cook them so that the yolk is about over-medium, this also becomes a great breakfast to eat on the go!
Feel free to use your own filling for these egg crepe pockets. If you do, let me know what you tried, so I can give it a try too!
