This post will show you how to make crepes. Crepes can be a little intimidating but the truth is they are very easy to make and so delish. Because you can fill them with sweet and savory fillings you can used them as a main meal, an appetizer or a dessert.

This recipe can be frozen for a couple of months so go ahead and make a bunch of you want. That way you can have them handy when you want them.

One way I love to present these is buffet style with a savory and sweet fillings so that everyone can make their own. This works especially well at brunches and it frees you up to be able to visit with your friends and family.

Here are the instructions on how to make crepes:

Makes twelve crepes
4 eggs
¼ tsp. salt
2 cups flour
2 ¼ cups milk
¼ cup melted butter

Whisk the eggs with the salt until frothy. Slowly whisk in the flour, alternating with the milk. Whisk until you have no lumps. Whisk in the butter. Mix well.

Heat a 10 inch skillet with a little butter. Work with medium heat. Spoon in some batter and lift the skillet, rolling the batter until you have an even layer. Cook for a few minutes until the bottom starts to brown and the crepe moves freely. Using a spatula, flip the crepe and cook the other side.

Place the crepes on a plate, covered with a damp paper towel. Fill with your filling of choice. Enjoy!
