These breakfast egg crêpes have become my go-to showstopper breakfast when I want to impress guests but keep things simple. Which makes this so perfect for the holiday season where entertaining family and friends can easily become overwhelming. No more! These easy egg crêpes are going to change your breakfast game completely.
How do you make egg crêpes
Egg crêpes are made with beaten egg and a splash of milk or cream. The eggs and cream are beaten together before being cooked in a large, non-stick frying pan in a thin layer (just like you would do a crêpe). These easy crêpe recipe is gluten free, low carb and perfect for filling with savory fillings.
I wanted to keep this recipe quite classic breakfast so filled the crêpes with a fried egg (you could also do poached), crispy bacon and roasted vine tomatoes. I cooked the bacon and tomatoes together in the oven which makes prepping a big batch so easy. If you were to make this recipe for guests, I would cook the egg crêpes the night before, layering them with parchment/baking paper and covering with plastic wrap. Cook the bacon and tomatoes in the oven while you fry the eggs and then simply heat the crêpes in the microwave/oven until just warm.
Each guests can make their own breakfast egg crêpe and you can add other fillings like grated cheese, sauteed mushrooms or crispy hash potatoes. You can also serve toast alongside.
What should I make for breakfast for guests?
- Roasted cheesy breakfast potatoes
- Bacon, egg and creamed spinach breakfast toast
- Make-ahead breakfast sandwiches
- Bacon corn muffins
