Savoury Crepe with mashed potato and bacon filling

Birthday Brunch For My Kiddo!

Crepes can be made into two types, sweet or savoury. Today is my youngest son’s 14th birthday, So I decided to make a hearty brunch for him before he heads out for his fencing practice. I combined two of his favourites, mashed potatoes and bacon.

Ingredients (Crepe)

  • 143g sifted all purpose flour
  • 263g milk
  • 43g melted butter
  • 191g egg
  • 10g sugar
  • 50g grated parmesan

Ingredients(Filling)

  • 1200g mashed potato
  • 73g milk
  • 120g melted butter
  • 80g bacon bits
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbs of dried parsley

Toppings

  • Sour cream
  • bacon bits
  • chives or spring onion

Method (batter)

  • Prepare your batter by mixing all the wet ingredients together, which are the eggs, melted butter, and milk. whisk until all well mixed
  • Add in your sugar and parmesan, then whisk it thoroughly
  • Add in your sifted flour, whisk until no lumps for flour can be seen. Do not overmix. As this will give you a more chewy texture.
  • Heat up your non stick 23cm pan on low heat fire, slightly oiled it with butter. Do it only on your first piece crepe.
  • Pour about 1/4 cup of batter (60ml) into the pan.
  • When the side starts to brown, flip to the other side to cook it for a few seconds about 10 seconds. Then set aside
  • Do the same for rest of the batter

Method(filling)

  • Boil your peeled potatoes until soften
  • Mash it with fork
  • Add in the melted butter and milk
  • Use the hand blender to blend until the texture becomes creamy
  • Mix in the bacon bits and dried parsley
  • Season with pepper and salt to taste

Assembling

  • Spread some mashed potatoes in your crepe
  • Fold it into half and fold it one more time, until it becomes a quarter size.
  • Drizzle it melted sour cream
  • Garnish with more bacon bits and chives.

Enjoy! Hasta La Vista til my next post! Have a great weekend!
