Savory crêpes for brunch? Or the one where I share one of my own recipes…

I’m pretty sure it’s the first time I share one of my own recipes on my blog. I’ve been making this for breakfast every few weeks for the past four or five months and it’s really good. So I thought I’d share.

Plus, it’s inspiring my current rom-com since the hero really enjoys cooking…

Plato The Dog loves when I make this dish because of the smell of butter melting in the pan. I agree with him. 🙂

Crêpes filled with a mustard sauce, red onions and red peppers, roast beef and more.

This makes enough filling for 4 crêpes. And full disclaimer: when I say “sprinkle” it’s because I have no idea on how much I actually put in. I make a simple crêpe batter the night before (recipe from Marmiton (in French) – I change the ingredients for 10 crêpes instead of 20 and still have some batter to make sweet ones).

Ingredients for the filling:

  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • roast beef (about half a pack)
  • salt, pepper,
  • mustard (stone ground dijon)
  • red wine
  • sugar
  • heavy cream
  • shredded cheese (Colby or Swiss or Mexican blend)
  • green onions.

While you cook this, you can make the crêpes at the same time. Preheat your oven at 200 degrees (Fahrenheit).

1. First step: sauté chopped red onions in a bit of melted butter and sprinkle with salt, pepper and sugar.
2. Add a tablespoon of red wine. And let simmer for a few minutes.
3. Add chopped red pepper and again sprinkle with salt, pepper, sugar and add a bit more red wine (I put maybe 3 tbsp).
4. Let it simmer until the red pepper for about 5 minutes. Then add the chopped roast beef and let it simmer for about 3 more minutes
5. Add at least 2 tablespoons of mustard. Mix. Then add about 1/4 of heavy cream. Let it simmer while you continue making the crêpes.
6. Add 2 tablespoons of chopped green onions and 1/4 cup of shredded cheese in the sauce.
7. Fill crêpes with mixture.
8. Sprinkle with cheese and green onions and put in oven for about 5 minutes. Or until the cheese is melted.

Enjoy 🙂

Happy Friday #21 – A shirtless guy and other stories…

Yay, it´s time for Happy Friday 😀 Looking forward to know what made you smile this week!

Writing, critiquing and reading: This week can be pretty much summarized into those two tweets –

Randomness: We went to IKEA last weekend and I got a new bookshelf where new shiny books will be able to find a place to call home and I made a yummy dessert. It was my first try with this recipe (Strawberry Blueberry Mini Cheesecake Trifle from Glorious Treats) and YUM! I found it on Pinterest, by looking at some pictures on the board of Katy Upperman (she has a LOT of delicious-looking food!)

YUM! (made mine not so mini but still yummy :))

So, tell me what made you smile this week?


Road trip – it´s all about the food…

Food. I love it. All types of food. Really. And Chemical Engineer feels the same way. So on our road trip/honeymoon, we knew there would be lots of eating and lots of different type of food (homemade by our dear friends, fast food on the road and restaurants in the towns we stayed at…).

And…we were not disappointed 😀

My favorite fast food restaurant was WAFFLE HOUSE.

I miss it here in Germany, really, their Texas Melt is just too yummy 😀

When it comes to restaurants, well while we loved all restaurants we went to, Delmenico´s in NYC stood out. This steakhouse had everything: a NYC history (it´s considered a “classic”), an interesting atmosphere (including some people celebrating a birthday, students, a basketball player and Wall Street bankers), a funny waiter and great great great food!

So tell me, what is your favorite food while on the road?
