I’ve watched the Food Network chefs try and make crepes all the time, and never tried to make one. My Mom and I had a dessert crepe with chocolate and banana at the mall one time and we weren’t really impressed. It was ok. I was like why are crepes so popular? They’re nothing special.
When making these this morning I had the heat on too high at first. My first crepe ended up burning and falling apart. I know. I should have taken a picture of that. I lowered the heat and used some non -stick cooking spray every time I made one. That really helped out. You also have to go along the edges of the crepe and kind of go underneath it to get the edges up so that’s it’s easier to flip. They’re kind of like pancakes in a way. They start to bubble in the middle of the batter in the pan.
I also ended up overcooking the first batch of these ham and egg crepes. I was so frustrated because I tried making one again and when you fold over the sides it doesn’t stick. I used a tooth pick to keep them in place. My egg kind of exploded everywhere on the crepe but it was so good. Maybe dessert crepes are my type? The savory ones I seem to like better.
