In case you were bitten by the crepe bug with Tuesday evening’s post, I thought I would give you a couple more suggestions for different ways to serve crepes to your sweet mama this coming Sunday. Maybe the eggs-over-easy from the Crepe Squares isn’t your mom’s thing. If that’s the case, try stuffing your crepes with my favorite scrambled eggs. If she has a sweet tooth, I also have two fabulous sugary options that could also be served as dessert later on in the day. Have fun in the kitchen, and remember to leave the place even more spotless than you found it. : )
First of all, you’ll need to start with a batch of crepes. The picture above is filled with these fabulous (!!!) scrambled eggs, and a slice or two of crisp-cooked, crumbled bacon. These eggs are amazing on their own if you’re not up to the crepe challenge.
LUXURY SCRAMBLED EGGS
Serves 3 – 4 Source: Adapted from thesplendidtable.org; recipe by Shellagh Connelly
6 eggs, lightly beaten (Egg Innovations Cage Free Eggs are on sale)
1 scallion, thinly sliced
A hefty pinch of your favorite chopped herbs (I use Italian parsley and basil)
3 oz. cream cheese, cubed (Shurfresh Cream Cheese Tubs are on sale)
2 T. half and half or whipping cream (Shurfresh Whipping Cream is on sale)
Salt and pepper to taste
Butter for the pan
Place all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk to blend.
Place a 10-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat and melt about a tablespoon of butter, swirling to coat the pan. Pour in the egg mixture, and stir with a spatula. Continue stirring slowly until large curds form, about four minutes or so. Cook them to your liking; I like mine when they’re still a bit wet (keep in mind, they’ll continue to cook when you take them off the heat). Transfer to a platter, garnish with a sprig of herbs. Serve hot.
If you plan from the start to stuff your crepes with a sweet filling, add a teaspoon or two of white sugar to your crepe batter during the blending process. You’ll set the perfect stage for sweet combinations like sliced bananas and Nutella, or fresh strawberries (on sale) and whipped cream.
I hope your mom loves her brunch almost as she loves you. Have a great week. : )
