I have a guilty pleasure ordering crepes from a local popular café for delivery. One day, they were so busy that the wait was very long. I did not want to wait that long and happened to remember that my mother used to make crepes at home. I looked for ingredients in the pantry and realized that I can make crepes/galettes myself. It is simple and you can make it whatever you want, savory or sweet galettes. Who needs a fancy café when you can prepare gourmet brunch/dessert at home?
YIELD: 2 servings
PREP TIME: 5 minutes
BAKE & STIR TIME: 10 minutes
RECIPE TYPE: French, Breakfast/Dessert, Gluten -free
- Ingredients for 2 Galettes:
- ¼ cup Rice Flour
- 1/3 cup Milk
- ½ Egg, beaten
- ½ tablespoon Margarine or butter, melted
- 4 Turkey Slices or Ham
- 2 Eggs
- 1/3 cup Milk
- 1 cup Shredded Cheese
- 1 Avocado
- Red Salsa
Mix rice flour, milk, ½ beaten egg, and melted margarine in a bowl in that order. (Make a hole in the center and add milk little by little to avoid clumps. Use spatula to mix.) The mixture should be as thin and smooth as crepe batter.
Spray with oil and heat the pan over medium-low heat. Pour half of the rice flour mixture slowly with a ladle in a circular motion.
When the surface starts to dry, place turkey slices in the center. Make a dam with cheese first. Slowly drop an egg in the center so that it stays in place. Add a teaspoonful of water and immediately cover with a lid for steaming effect.
When the egg is at your desired doneness, uncover and turn the heat to medium high to make it crispy. Do not burn. Fold the edges to make a square shape.
Serve with salsa and avocado.
- For sweet galettes, you may add Chocolate spread, banana, strawberries, blueberry jelly, butter and sugar, etc. Invite your loved ones for a posh café experience at your home.
