An Introduction to Crepe FillingAfter you have followed the instructions on how to make crepes or whether you used a crepe maker, you have to decide on which kinds of ingredients you want to add.
Depending on your particular crepe recipe and the time of day it is that you have decided to prepare them, your fillings and sauces can be various. Below you can read about each category of crepe filling, from desserts to breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Crepe Filling Choices
Breakfast crepes are good to serve with eggs, ham, or other meats. You can pair it alongside an omelet, then add toppings such as cheese, olives, crumbled up bacon. You could add your favorite jelly or jam on top, and serve it as is. Like with pancakes, you could drizzle maple syrup. Sausage is recommended here but you can serve it with anything else you like. Fresh fruit and little natural corn syrup would be nice.Lunch crepes are best served with meat and cheese offerings. Standard fare. Since the bread from the crepes can essentially serve as anything, you could add some cheese, sauce, and pepperoni on top, bake it, and you would have created some makeshift pizza circles. Make a nice cheddar sauce and wrap two crepes around a meat patty, adding vegetables as desired, to make a nice low-carbohydrate hamburger.
Dinner crepes can be more customary and formal. Prepare thinly-sliced meats and cook them in the oven, placing them on top. You could even do a full chicken parmesan, layered with crepes. Make a delicious Italian lasagna with them, with mozzarella and ricotta cheeses, with a light garlic sauce. Serving them with mushrooms and asparagus inside would make very tasty crepe filling, if you like those ingredients.
Dessert Crepe Filling ChoicesSome ingredients you may like include: apple, strawberry, blueberry, and pear glaze fillings. These are delicious, use fresh fruit, and are simmered down so that the flavor comes out. Drizzle melted chocolate over anything, because it goes well here.
You can even make crepes themselves with chocolate. Then, you can add ingredients from a banana split. If you like Nutella, this goes really well with crepes and pancakes.
If you prefer orange, make a nice orange sauce reduction and drizzle it over, with perhaps some fried banana strips stuffed inside.
