Mornings are so hectic. Couple that with my unreasonable goal to get everyone well-fed with a healthy breakfast. It seems impossible most of the time but I’ve made a point to add new recipes to the breakfast roster so we aren’t always eating toaster waffles or cereal.
Here is a recipe that actually came to be on one of those hectic mornings. I set out to make Buttermilk pancakes and forgot half the flour – voila! I got Buttermilk Crepes! I immediately thought about how great these would be stuffed with savoury ingredients like ham, cheese and a vegetable (if the kids comply).
Ham and cheese, I’ve said it many times before, is a winning combination with my kids. However, you can easily dress these crepes up for a fancier brunch crowd with more mature tastes.
Most importantly, for very little ingredients, this Buttermilk Crepe recipe makes a big batch – this one will get you about 20 crepes! These crepes freeze so well, too and they defrost in a snap! I have added two make ahead options in the recipe below for your convenience.
I add a good thick slice of Maple Leaf Natural Smoked Ham, a slice of creamy cheese that gets nice and melted in the oven and a few spears of asparagus. If your kids aren’t into the greens, try a few slices of pear or apple – equally delicious! I feel so good about using Maple Leaf Ham because they’ve changed them – there is nothing artificial and no preservatives in their products anymore. You can include them in your family meals without the worry and that makes meal time MUCH easier.
In addition to my recipes making your meal prep a little easier, I hope the addition of Maple Leaf’s new, natural meats has helped too! I hope you have tried some of their new products such as Maple Leaf Natural Bacon, Maple Leaf Natural Smoked Ham and Maple Leaf Pure Pork Natural Sausage Meat (just to name a few of my personal faves!) and have given a few of my recipes a try! You can find all of my recipes HERE.
We are all in this together – wishing you all a wonderful school year!
