After yesterdays blog, I feel I need to clear the air. Don't get me wrong, I love eggs. Without them, we wouldn't have such delicacies such cheesecake and other delicious baked goods. I felt this morning I needed to somehow vindicate them by having a nice ham and cheese omelet but ultimately, I couldn't do it.
Once again I turned to three fat chicks and found a recipe for almond crepes which actually has almond flour in it so I imagined the texture would be more pancake-y. Because I've been so good on my diet so far I splurged and bought a pack of almond flour. It's about $10 a pound. Yeah. Good thing I only needed about four tablespoons.
The batter smelled heavenly and my mouth began to water as I slowly watched little bubbles form around the edge. I added a few dabs of cream cheese as recommended and as I went to flip it, the darn thing broke:(
On a side note: I've made crepes monthly for the past fifteen years so I feel fairly competent when it comes to crepe flipping so I was caught off guard. Fortunately the batter seemed to meld back together so I decided to give it another try after a minute. Once again, it broke. With my crepe confidence shattered, I scrambled the damn thing which ultimately, looked like scrambled eggs:/
Take two. I decided to pour the rest of the batter in to make a thicker crepe. I added the cream cheese and just flipped over one side ala omelet. Tasty! I know it looks a little burned but it tasted better this time. Definitely will make it again.
