It’s no secret that I love crêpes– I crave them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and even for snacks in between! If you’ve kept up with Champagne Tastes over the last few months, you know that I’ve been on a crêpe-binge– a crêpe-stravaganza– and have filled your phone screens and work computers with all things crêpe. You’re welcome.
Let’s do this again, shall we? Today– a Savory Crêpe Recipe for Rosemary Apple Crêpes!
Savory Crêpe Recipe: How to Choose Crêpe Fillings
Crêpes are extra skinny pancakes– the thinnest of the thin! And since they are SO SKINNY, they’re perfect to wrap up delicious, savory toppings.
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. Simply take a crêpe, fill about a quarter of it with fillings, fold it up, and then heat it on a hot pan.
Quick Tip: This recipe assumes that you’ve already made your crêpes. If you need help making crêpes, check out this How to Make French Crêpes Tutorial.
Making Rosemary Apple Crêpes
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 per crêpe, but use more if you want!).
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!
Quick Tip: 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.)
