Thoughts

Crepes are a fun option for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner. There are so many options as to how to server them. Sweet or savory, it is all delicious!

The fillings I gave above, are some of my favorites, but there are many more options that range from just a sprinkle of sugar to chicken with vegetables.

Crepes are my favorite Friday dinner option. In Poland, we do not eat meat on Fridays, so a lot of fun dinner options including crepes are served. My mom made either fish, dumplings, or crepes on Friday, and naturally, the sweet crepe option is always my favorite.

Let me know what filling you use for your crepes.

Enjoy!

  1. Absolutely – crepes are supremely versatile! Breakfast, brunch, dinner…sweet, savory, spicy fillings…the universe expands relentlessly.

    My favorite filling? Mushrooms! Meaning, it’d work for you on a Friday too. I’m not a vegetarian (just a glance at my blog shows that), but mushrooms are superb.

    Your spinach creation looks pretty darn spectacular too!
