Breakfast For Dinner, Part 2

For a classy breakfast that can also be used in a dessert dish, here is a simple recipe for crepes that you can use with any fruit or cream cheese filling you'd like.

Simple Crepes-makes 8 crepes
2 eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup milk
½ cup water
2 tbsp butter, melted
¼ tsp salt

Over med-high heat, warm up and lightly oil a frying pan or griddle. In a large bowl, whisk the flour and eggs together. Then, stir in the water and the milk little by little, add the butter and salt and stir until smooth.

Now, scoop roughly ¼ cup of batter onto the pan and shake the pan in a circular motion to create an even layer. Cook each side for about 2 minutes and serve.

If you want a light-ish dessert, you could wrap the crepes around some cool cream cheese or fresh strawberries. You could also spread Nutella or another chocolate-hazelnut spread onto bananas and fry over medium heat until it gets to a nice crispy texture.

Finally, here's a twist on what we in the South US call 'home fries'.

'Loaded' Home Fries-makes 4 servings
2 large baking potatoes
¼ cup chopped onion
2 tbsp butter
½ cup crumbled bacon, or to taste
½ cup shredded cheese, or to taste
¼ cup chives, or to taste

Wash potatoes and poke with a fork. Microwave on high for 10 minutes, 5 on each side. Cool and slice thinly. Then, lightly fry the onion and potatoes until they are browned. Sprinkle remaining ingredients and serve when cheese is melted.

These are some of my favorite recipes for breakfast-for-dinner. This might seem like a lot of food but, trust me, it won't go to waste!
