The great thing about crepes is you can make them ahead of time, store them in the fridge, and eat when you want. They don’t have to be warm like pancakes, and they definitely don’t need syrup.

Although crêpes are French pancakes, I tend to think of them as pancake/tortilla/pasta hybrids. Like pancakes, you can serve them with things such as caramelized apples, berries or whipped cream; and like tortillas, you can stuff them with virtually any savory filling. Scoop scrambled eggs into a crepe, sprinkle with your favorite cheese, then wrap the whole thing together to make a quick, yet elegant, breakfast burrito. Heck you can even use crepes in place of pasta, which is exactly what my husband and I did a couple of weeks ago when we rolled fresh crepes around a filling of ricotta cheese, herbs and mozzarella then baked them in our favorite tomato sauce. Versatility! Ya gotta love it. And that is the wonderful thing about crepes. The Wonderful things About Crepes
