Crepes with Strawberries and Nutella

We love crepes! These have been a fun Sunday dinner, Conference Morning Breakfast, Birthday name it and we can find a reason to make crepes and fill them with yummy Strawberries and Nutella and then top them with Whip Cream and a chocolate drizzle. Oh my so so yummy.

We have also come to love them filled with savory things...ham and cheese, turkey and cheese. I don't think that there is anything we wouldn't like wrapped in a crepe.

Here is how...

Add to Blender -

4 eggs
1/2 cup melted butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1/4 cup water
1 cup flour
pinch salt

Blend until smooth...Let sit or not...we"ve done it both ways. If you do let it sit- refrigerate and blend again when you are ready to cook.

I use a small nonstick calphalon pan. Heat pan on medium heat and then pour batter and swirl the pan to make thin crepes. I don't measure the batter, I just pour and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan. When the edges are set and you can lift with a spatula, flip them over this takes maybe 30 seconds.
These cook REALLY fast! Cook on the other side 5-10 seconds and done!

Then fill them with whatever your heart desires. We use Nutella then add whip cream, fold or roll, then top with strawberries and more whip cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

If we are also doing savory crepes, we have deli meat and cheeses, we make pesto mayonnaise (mayonnaise and pesto stirred together to taste) and roll together. I skip the sugar and vanilla in the crepe batter when we do savory.

I have found this recipe halves and doubles really well...we've done both depending on the amount of people we are serving.

Here is the link to the original post where I found this amazing recipe. We've made the cream cheese mixture too and we love it as well...we don't do it every time, it's rich!!

This isn't the best picture, the next time I make them then I'll take a better picture, but...

Mouth watering???
