I’m going to let you in on a secret now– if you love stuffed crêpes, but aren’t always sure what to use to fill your delicate, lacy French pancakes, think of it like a sandwich.  Anything you could use to fill a hot sandwich can most definitely go in your crêpes.  If you’re used to making panini– even better.  Simply take a crêpe, fill about a quarter of it with fillings, fold it up, and then heat it on a skillet.

This easy how-to is a step-by-step tutorial on making French Crepes

How to Make French Crepes

For these Rosemary Apple Crêpes, start with a crêpe, a few thin apple slices, and some fresh rosemary.  Next, grate some sharp white cheddar cheese (I use about 1/4 a cup, but if you adore cheese, just go ahead and add more, you do what you want!).  Make sure you’re freshly grating your cheese– pre-shredded cheese doesn’t melt as quickly, and we want a fast melt to keep the crêpes from over-cooking.  (Actually, always try to use a block of cheese and grate it– freshly grated cheese tastes better than pre-shredded.)  Spread all your toppings on to 1/4 of the crêpe, fold it in half like a book, then fold it in half again.  Set the whole thing on a non-stick pan over medium heat, and cook it until the cheese is melted.  When you’re finished, keep going!  Be crêpe-crazed like me– Have two stuffed crêpes!

    Yes, I do love cheese and completely agree that freshly grated is so much better than buying those pre-done packages. Awesome combo here with the rosemary, cheese and apple! Bet this tastes amazing! Bring on the crepes 🙂

    Ok. . .I have a little secret. . .I’m a crepe virgin of sorts. I mean. . .I’ve scarfed down crepes before. . .but never, ever have I actually made up my own batch. Well. . .I think that it is high time we change that, don’t you? Your beautiful crepes are inspiring me to give it a go. And as you pointed out. . .sky is the limit with what you can stuff into a crepe. . .which I totally love.

      Awww- give it a shot! If you can make those gorgeous carrot swirls and pecan crust swirls that you do- you can definitely swoosh some batter in a pan and make a thin pancake! Super easy!!!
