    Low Carb Crepes - Go well with Low Carb Fruits

    Post by Jan1 on Fri Mar 27 2015, 15:20


    These crepes/pancakes are virtually carb. free and are very easy to make - although you use ricotta cheese they do not taste of cheese.

    Ingredients.

    200 Grams of ricotta cheese
    3 eggs
    I teaspoon of cinnamon
    A splash of milk

    Method

    Mix the cheese, eggs and cinnamon into a small mixing bowl. Add a splash of milk if the mix is too thick to run freely. Place a small knob of butter into a frying pan, I use a small omelette pan 8". Heat the butter and spoon in 3 table spoons of mix. Fry until firm then turn over and cook for one minute or until the crepe is starting to brown. This mix makes between 6 and 8 crepes/pancakes. Allow to cool.

    Great at any time with savoury foods, such as cream cheese, spring onions, very good for the lunch box or picnic.....and also great warmed up with some low carb berries and double cream.

    How about trying them with raspberries, strawberries, blackberries or blueberries.  sunny

    Or just serve simply with a slice of lemon - gently squeezed over the crepes.  Smile

    All the best Jan

    I made a batch of those last night, very nice too, except:

    I need a smaller pan to control the size better; and I need to remember the heat and to turn on the extractor - managed to set off all the smoke alarms ... Rolling Eyes

    I haven't tried cheese and egg on it's own, I'll give that a try.

    But these crepes / pancakes are good

    Bumped this up ... you may find the recipe idea comes in useful during August !
    Can you believe it - the eighth month of the year here already.

    Enjoy your day, and this recipe.
