I didn’t get to share with you these babies from my menu a couple of weekends ago. These are so good. I am working on perfecting my recipe a little bit. I think it could use a little more beer. I present to you…
Ham and Cheese Beer Batter Crepes
Ingredients (serves 4, 2 crepes each)
- 1 c. all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 c. milk
- 1/3 c. water
- 3 tbsp beer
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 8 slices of Natural Deli Ham
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese (or cheese of choice) shredded
- 1 large tomato sliced
In a bowl, whisk egg and combine liquid ingredients, salt and butter. Slowly whisk wet ingredients in with the flour.
Coat a skillet with natural non stick spray. Heat the skillet on medium heat (make sure it’s hot before adding batter). Coat the skillet (in a circle) with about ¼ c. batter.
When the crepe (skillet side down) turns a nice golden brown. Flip it. Then add to each crepe one slice of ham, a little cheese and two or three slices of tomato.
