I think I would love breakfast if it was later in the day. Matter of fact, I would like morning better if it was later in the day. That’s why I love brunch.
Brunch is relaxing. Brunch doesn’t care if you don’t eat it until 11am. Brunch does not make you stick with just breakfast foods. Want something savory? How about something sweet? Brunch is a pretty accepting meal.
The entire world should partake in brunch. I think it would be a more peaceful place if everyone started their day with a mimosa and a plate of some brunchy goodness. All after 11am.
When the folks at Eggland’s Best asked if I would share some pics of a brunch featuring their eggs, I said sure thing. I love eggs. Eggs are easy and my kiddos love them too.
And while Eggland’s has all kinds of groovy recipes to inspire you with, I made my own special something for our brunch. Crepes filled with Nutella and strawberries. Chocolate anything in the morning is A-OK with me.
Crepes filled with Nutella and strawberries makes everyone feel like they are celebrating something. And we are. We are celebrating only having to wash one sink full of dishes. Brunch is pretty wonderful that way too. Only two meals in one day to clean up after. Brunch rocks.
Crepes are so very easy to make. Don’t let the fancy French name fool you. It’s the same as making pancakes, just thinner. And you don’t need some fancy crepe pan no matter what your cookbook or favorite food blog tells you. Use your skillet. And make them big. The bigger they are, the more chocolate they will hold. Truth.
Crepes With Nutella and Strawberries
For the crepe batter:
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
2 Eggland’s Best Eggs
2 Tbsp water
1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp butter (for cooking crepes in)
1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 pound strawberries, sliced
Place all the ingredients for the crepe batter (except butter) in a food processor or blender and process just until smooth.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add enough butter to coat the pan. Pour just enough batter in to coat the bottom of the pan. Cook for 30 seconds on each side.
Once all crepes are cooked, smear Nutella onto the surface of the crepe and top with strawberries. Fold over and serve.
And as decadent as my recipe is, it’s full of some pretty good stuff too. Eggland’s Best Eggs has ten times more vitamin E, double the amount of Omega-3′s, twice the amount of vitamin D and 25% less saturated fat than regular eggs. That’s one fine egg.
