We rang the new year in quietly, just us five at home.
With an all hands-on deck omelet making session that trashed the kitchen.
And A LOTR marathon in the living room, complete with a pile of blankets and pillows and decked out in our comfiest jammies.
Yeah, we partied it up big time.
We started New Years Day off with sleeping in 'til almost 10 am.
Whoo-wee, that was nice.
Lu and I decided that our first breakfast of the new year should be a new recipe.
I know- what a great idea!
We also knew we wanted it to be an easy, not terribly involved no extra prep recipe.
And being who we are, that girl and I can't help but a tweak a recipe....
and so we created:
New Years Crepes.
Serious deliciousness right here....
New Years Crepes
2 Tbsp. sugar, divided (see amounts below)
1 pint strawberries, sliced
2 Bananas, sliced
8 flour tortillas
1 small container cream cheese spread
1 container Nutella
2 Tbsp. milk
1 Tbsp. cooking oil
Reserve 2 tsp sugar and toss sliced berries with remaining sugar. Warm tortillas in microwave for 20 seconds (this makes it easier to spread cream cheese and Nutella on them and decreases your chances of the tortillas tearing). Starting with first tortilla, spread a thin layer of Nutella all over one side. Next, spread a very thin layer of cream cheese spread on top of Nutella. Spoon desired amount of strawberries and banana slices on right half of flat and frosted tortilla. Fold in half and ever so gently press edges to seal. Repeat this process with all the tortillas until you have 8 (uncooked) crepes.
Whisk egg, milk and reserved sugar (2 tsp) in a pie plate until blended. Heat oil in a skillet on medium-high heat. Dip filled tortillas, one at a time, into egg mixture and then place in warm skillet. Cook approximately one minute on each side or until lightly browned (on both sides).
Serve topped with whip cream and more fruit or with maple syrup.
Variations: you can omit the Nutella or the cream cheese- using just one or the other. Or you could use peanut butter! You can also substitute other fruit such as raspberries, blueberries, cherries or peaches.
