This is a lifesaver of a recipe when you need to have some of the meal done ahead of time so that you can quickly throw the rest together and put dinner on the table. You can make ham and brie crepes, pizza crepes, nutella crepes, egg and bacon crepes…and the list is endless! And the crepe alone has a Balance Factor of 0!
Crack egg into a bowl and beat with a fork.
Add flour and salt and beat with fork until well blended.
Let sit for 10 mins. to let the gluten form.
Using a paper towel coat a shallow, non-stick frying pan with a thin layer of lard. Heat pan over medium heat.
Holding the pan off the flame, pour 1/3 to 1/2 cup of crepe batter into the centre of the pan and carefully rotate pan until batter covers the entire surface. Return pan to heat.
When batter appears dry around the edge, gently loosen the outside of the crepe with a non-metallic spatula.
As your spatula moves towards the middle of the crepe, gently lift the crepe and turn it over. Cook the other side for 10-15 secs until browned.
Remove crepe to a plate and cover with a piece of parchment paper.
Since crepes are already balanced, adding proteins and fats, like meat, cheese and eggs can make this dish very low carb.
