- 6 large eggs
- 3 tbsp half and half
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- nonstick cooking spray
- 6 oz. fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
- 1 pint heavy whipping cream*
- 1-2 tbsp real maple syrup
- 1 cup balsamic vinegar
* Instructions for maple whipped cream and balsamic glaze are included below.
Place the eggs, half and half, and olive oil into a large bowl and whisk until smooth.
Lightly spray a 10” non-stick skillet with non-stick cooking spray and set over medium-low heat. (You may want to adjust heat up slightly to just below medium).
Pour ¼ cup of egg batter into pre-heated skillet and swirl pan to evenly coat the bottom with a thin layer. If any holes appear, add a little more batter to fill. Cover the pan and cook until the egg batter begins to set, approximately 2-3 minutes. Do not overcook.
Once set, gently loosen the edges with a silicon spatula and flip the crepe, being careful to not break or tear it in the process. Cook for one minute more and remove crepe from pan. Repeat with remaining batter.
Place desired filling ingredients in the center of each crepe and fold over both sides to cover.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
How To Make Maple Whipped Cream
In a large glass bowl, blend 1 pint of heavy whipping cream with a hand or immersion blender until it doubles in size and changes texture. Then, drizzle maple syrup into the bowl and continue blending until the mixture is light and fluffy. Set aside.
How To Make Balsamic Glaze
Heat 1 cup of good balsamic vinegar over medium-high heat until it begins to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the liquid is reduced to about 1/3 of its original volume, stirring continually. When the liquid becomes thick and syrupy, it is ready to use. Cool slightly before using.
