Beer Batter Crepes

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.
