Fusion - Crepes with spatchcock chicken, goat cheese, oyster mushrooms and Thai curry

I just made this up.  Turned out delicious.  Had some leftover spatchcock chicken from Sunday I needed to use, plus some oyster mushrooms.  Threw in some other stuff and did a "Travis style" make-somefin'-up.  Served with greens.

Pictures (cell phone, sorry) will follow as soon as I download them.

  • Great, now I'm THAT guy.

    Looks great. I've been trying to read up on crepes. I can't wait to try them.

    Thanks, just did that and it worked.  Being the "creative" guy ain't so bad.  Figgured ya must be getting tired of being the "travis brisket" guy.

    Crepes are super easy.  They work for sweet or savory.  Great way to use up stuff in your fridge.

    1 cup flour, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup milk, 2 eggs, salt all in the blender, fire it up, pour on hot griddle.  1-2 minutes, flip, 30 seconds, done.  Put stuff in them.  Serve.

    Nola,

    Funny video.  :))

    I love making crepes. It's like a French tortilla.  Most recipes I've seen add some oil or butter to the batter.  This is the recipe I've used for years.

    Crepes, dinner

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Recipe By: culinary arts cookbook

    Ingredients:

    1 cup Flour, all purpose

    1/8 teaspoon Salt

    3 Eggs

    1 1/2 cups Milk

    2 tablespoons Butter, melted, or oil

    Directions:

    1. Sift flour and salt.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating thoroughly. Add melted butter and beat until smooth (or mix in electric blender until smooth). Let batter stand for 1 hour before cooking crepes.  Makes about 18 crepes.

    2. The Culinary Arts Cookbook, pg. 36 


    P.S.  I never sift the flour and salt and they turn out great.

    Is the breakfast version different?  I ask because you posted it as "Crepes, dinner".
  • No, breakfast is the same.  There would be a different recipe for dessert crepes, though.

    VI - I did not sift either.  No clumps will survive the blender.

    The toughest step to make crepes, for me, was finding the damn crepe griddle, which turned out to be in the very back of a high storage cabinet, where I had to grab a ladder to reach.

  • Nola,
    I used to have a crepe griddle too.  About 10 years ago, I bought a crepe skillet and have used it ever since.  I don't flip them like the pros do.  I saw you had a plastic spatula in your picture.  I do the same thing.  I lift a corner of the crepe, then lift it up and turn it over.  Works just fine.

  • I have a serious itis now. I'm super impressed and inspired (add extra superlatives for effect)

    I'll be doing these soon.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
  • nolaeggheadnolaegghead Posts: 25,058
    Yeah, I lift up the edge with the spatula, let it cool for 10 seconds, then just flip.

    I'm planning on doing a breakfast crepe for tomorrow morning.  Potaoes or hash browns, poached eggs, cilantro, pico, maybe some bacon.

  • Great looking meal Nola. In our experience, crepes are often used only for breakfasts and desserts, but are wonderful when used as the base for an entree. Stuff 'em with anything and everything, much like the tortilla. 
    In the late '70's there was an excellent restaurant in Oakbrook Il, called the Creperie I think. Our first experience with this simple yet useful base for some very interesting meals, as SWMBO refers to it, it is French for leftovers, or "Le Hash".

    Thanks Skiddymarker. 
    We have a crepe restaurant here (that I've never been to) called La Crepe Nanou.  Need to go.

    I think of crepes as "French Burritos".

    Actually, I've eaten their crepes at a street festival. 

    This is how they fold them up (their picture, not mine).  I like this style - need to try.

    Wow!  Excellent looking dish Nola!  I usually just make chicken salad with leftover spatchy.  You have raised the bar for spatchy leftovers! 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • nolaeggheadnolaegghead Posts: 25,058
    @SmokeyPitt - thanks!  The smokeyness worked well.
